I harvested some veggies from my garden so I decided to build a Buddha Bowl for lunch. A Buddha Bowl is really anything you want it to be just follow these simple rules. Start with a grain like bulgur, rice or quinoa, top with your favourite veggie (and fruits like tomato and avocado) and finish with a spectacular sauce like my asian peanut sauce. Nuts are also a great crunchy addition. You can also make the bulgur in advance and keep it in the fridge.

I used bulgar as it has more protein and fibre than brown rice. (18 net carbs in this dish) The nutritional yeast flakes also add more protein but don’t alter the flavour.

Experiment with this dish and let us know how you do!
