Bold and satisfying in flavor, vibrantly colored, and super-rich in nutrients, Buddha bowls are easy-to-make one-dish meals. In this beautifully illustrated cookbook, Buddha Bowls author Kelli Foster presents 100 tempting and utterly creative plant-based recipes for making them.
These vegan Buddha bowls feature delicious grains, from the familiar, like oats, barley, quinoa, and rice, to the newly popular, like amaranth, freekeh, and farro, along with all manner of noodles, including pastas, udon, rice noodles, and soba. Nutritious veggies abound, especially greens like spinach, chard, and kale, as do bold flavors and aromatics, like garlic, ginger, lime, tamarind, and lemongrass. Protein-rich ingredients like tofu, tempeh, nuts and nut butters, chia, hemp, and chickpeas make each of these bowls a nutritionally complete meal in just one dish.
You will find dozens of robust and filling dinners both for the weekday whirl and for relaxing weekend meals with family and friends. Beyond that, Plant-Based Buddha Bowls includes more than a dozen Morning Buddha Bowls for a power-packed start to the day; Buddha Bowls on the Go, perfect for packing for school or work; calming Mood Bowls, for light suppers and late-night snacks; and even Sweet Buddha Bowls, which use natural sugars only, for treats and desserts—and for the sweet-toothed kids in the household.
Whether you're a vegan or vegetarian—or an omnivore who enjoys a plant-based meal from time to time—you will love the taste and convenience of these Buddha bowls. Never has so much color and flavor made its way into one humble bowl.
