Vibrant Vegan Double Broccoli Buddha Bowl

Vibrant Vegan Double Broccoli Buddha Bowl

A Buddha bowl is all sorts of healthful goodness piled in abundance in a single bowl. They tend to be very beautiful, and have an ability to make people more appreciative of a meal than usual. Perhaps it's because of the care that is often taken in their preparation and presentation? I'm not sure, but there is something about a bowl like this that re-frames the food at hand, and reminds us just how beneficial, miraculous, and powerful each ingredient we use can be.

I've highlighted a favorite Buddha Bowl here. It's strong on a number of points. Green, filing, and fast to pull together, particularly if you have cooked quinoa on hand already. It's a bowl on green overdrive - doubling up on broccoli by using it in a coconut curry pesto and using the florets on their own as well. You toss it all with a quinoa base, and top with whatever else you have around - avocado, micro greens. The base ingredient list is, literally, seven ingredients long, and there is a lot of room for flexibility - part of the charm of a bowl like this. :)
