If you’ve never heard of a Buddha Bowl, it might just become your new favorite meal. A Buddha Bowl, also known as a rice bowl, quinoa bowl or salad bowl, is a bowl full of delicious ingredients for a hearty meal.

While most Buddha Bowls have a whole grain base, like rice or quinoa, the base can also be salad, pasta, roasted potatoes – the possibilities are endless!

The base is then topped with a combination of tasty ingredients like proteins, fruits, veggies, cheese, nuts, dressings and so much more. The best part? You can totally customize for your own (or your family’s) tastes! Buddha bowls are also great for meal prep – prep a handful of ingredients then mix and match all week for delicious meals,
