Recipe Swap Club is trying out something new this month. We are teaming up to each make a great Buddha Bowl and share what the other participants have come up with! Make sure you scroll to the bottom of the page to see the other amazing recipes once you see what Simply Made Recipes created, the Thai inspired Buddha Bowl. Don’t get intimidated by the amount of ingredients and instructions for this recipe. This is a simple recipe and uses basic ingredients. The only ingredient that your grocery may night have is the flowering kale but you can easily substitute with red cabbage or your regular kale.
To start, let us talk about what a Buddha Bowl is. To keep it basic, you have 5 elements to a good Buddha Bowl.
- 1/4 Protein.
- 1/4 Green.
- 1/4 Vegetables. Your green is probably a vegetable so half your bowl will be made of vegetables. For this portion, think of using various colored vegetables to ensure nutrient balance in your diet.
- 1/4 Grain.
- Sauce to drizzle on top. May also pick a healthy fat.
These Thai inspired Buddha Bowls are so healthy, nutrient rich and filling! Fresh, crisp carrots, bok choy, kale and snow peas paired with a delicious garlic ginger marinated chicken. A coconut brown rice keeps you full for hours and the peanut sauce brings the whole dish together. I used chicken today in this bowl but you can easily swap with tofu. Directions for both chicken and tofu preparation are included in the instructions.
