Buddha Bowl

Buddha bowl

A buddha bowl is a large bowl filled with healthy grains, vegetables and protein. They are really versatile and not far off from the Falafel Mezze bowl which I posted earlier this week. I find these buddha bowls a perfect way to clear out any remaining food in the fridge or pantry. This dish is so colourful with a little bit of everything drizzled with delicious tahini sauce.


  • 150g Black quinoa
  • 1 Carrot, peeled and ribboned
  • 50g Rocket, rinsed
  • 2 Shallots, peeled and sliced thinly
  • 1 egg per person
  • 2 tbsp Tahini sauce
  • 1 Lemon juiced
  • 1 Garlic clove, peeled and diced finely
  • 250ml Vegetable stock
  • 100g Turtle beans


  1. Boil the quinoa and beans in the vegetable stock for approx 1 hour until tender.
  2. Make the dressing by mixing the tahini sauce, lemon juice and garlic cove, season.
  3. Fry the eggs to your preference
  4. Arrange the quinoa mixture in a bowl and top off with rocket, shallots, carrot and egg.
  5. Drizzle over the tahini dressing and serve.
