Southwest Buddha Bowl

Buddha bowls are so easy, as long as you have a grain, veggies and protein you can go so many ways with flavor. Have fun and mix it up is what I like to do. Today’s recipe is short and sweet giving you an idea of a different way to eat this great dish.

Do you want more ideas?

For grain you can do rice, (such a nice variety in just rice alone) quinoa, barley, bulgur and the list can go on but these grains are a great start.

Vegetables think fresh, crunchy and again the sky is the limit here too, with summer coming you could really have fun with all the fresh wonderful veggies.

Now the protein, legumes or beans and again you can have a large choice with beans. Not to split hairs but I used lentils and they are considered a grain legume so have fun deciding on what category they belong in. I choose to just eat a larger portion of lentils so to fill in both my grain and legume. Right or wrong I enjoyed this quick easy meal.

Southwest Buddha Bowl:

For the Lentils:

1 cup dry lentils

2 cups water

1 jalapeno seeds removed and diced

1 small white onion diced

1 small tomato diced

cumin, salt, lime juice to taste and a pinch of sugar

In a sauce pan add washed lentil, water and the remaining ingredients cover and cook for about 45 minutes or until the lentils are done.

Vegetables:

Salad Spring mix per taste

1 red sweet pepper diced

1 orange sweeet pepper diced

1 white onion diced

1 pint of cherry tomatoes

In a bowel place desired amount of lentils and vegetables

Add the toppings/sauce

For the sauce

1 jar of Cashew Cheesy Sauce use per taste ( warmed it up in the microwave)

Plain Greek Yogurt per taste

Now enjoy!

This might not be your usual Buddha bowel but it’s a great easy meal on a Summer night.
