Goddess Buddha Bowl

This is a perfectly balanced bowl of goodness perfect for when the weather begins to turn cooler and you crave a little comfort food.

Method

It’s important to say that you can use whatever vegetables you have to hand but try to include some nuts for protein and good fats. The dressing is also a must as it really does transform anything you put it on. Try it on warm roasted root vegetables as well as any leafy greens.

 

First make the creamy sesame dressing by whisking the tahini, garlic and lemon juice together in a small bowl. Next, whisk in enough warm water a tablespoon at a time until your dressing is the consistency of single cream. Set aside.

 

Arrange all your chosen ingredients on top of the rice in a bowl. Drizzle over the creamy dressing and enjoy.

 

NB: This can be enjoyed either hot or at room temperature and if you are feeding a group of people simply multiply the ingredients by the number of guests and arrange on a large serving platter for people to help themselves to.
