Vegan Buddha Bowls and Why We Are Obsessed








If you’re looking for something vegan, incredibly tasty, and that packs a punch in nutrition, look no further than the Vegan Buddha Bowl, which we are kind of obsessed with. What is the Vegan Buddha Bowl? It’s basically an “everything goes” bowl of ingredients, so full of ingredients that it makes a round dish (like a heaping round Buddha belly), made from various dark leafy greens, raw or roasted veggies, beans, and quinoa, sometimes including extras like nuts, seeds, and dressing for added texture or flavor. There is no end to the creations you can make when designing your own vegan buddha bowl.


Why We’re Obsessed

Where to start? We’re obsessed with the flavor; the nutritional aspect; the convenience and ease of whipping it up on a whim; the fact that it’s responsible from an environmental and economical standpoint; and the sheer number of options and varieties available depending on the ingredients you use.
