buddha bowl

This Buddha bowl was delicious and super easy - I was after something quick (little bit hungover - needed sustenance ASAP) and I had some things in my fridge that needed used. 

Buddha bowls can be adapted in many ways, but as a general rule I try to include some sort of healthy grain, greens, legumes/beans and whatever else I want/need to use just gets chucked in!

I won't list a specific recipe because you can change this up in so many ways, but here is a list of what I included in this particular bowl:
  • Black rice
  • Roasted sweet potato slices
  • Raw red cabbage
  • Mango
  • Steamed black kale
  • Roasted chilli and garlic chickpeas
  • Sprouted buckwheat
  • Fermented salsa (the last of the jar - need to make more immediately!)

Roasted chickpeas are delicious and so simple to make. I used a tin of organic chickpeas, rinsed and patted dry. Sprinkle over some hot chilli powder, smoked paprika and garlic granules and bake in the oven @ 180° for around 30 mins :)

P.S. I said I would report back on the fermented salsa! I've been using it for about a week now and I'm hooked. It's so much more flavoursome than 'normal' salsa. I've been using it with salads, sweet potatoes, tortilla chips (bold!) and everything else in between. For a recipe that was so simple (chop everything and chuck in a mason jar with some pink salt) this was insanely good..! I will continue to make this regularly because it's a great option to have in the fridge - thumbs up!
