Zen Garden

Whole grains, plant proteins, and fresh veggies all in one bowl – the Buddha bowl is essentially a vegan concept of a meal that’s nourishing as well as appealing to the eye. While you don’t need to follow recipes as such, you must keep in mind both health and aesthetic quotients. Try out a variety of ingredients (not necessarily vegan), just enough to offer you little bites of fresh flavors and interesting textures.

Zen Garden

You can include anything – rice, millets, quinoa, corn, and a protein of your choice as well as assorted vegetables (raw or cooked). Make your bowl look pretty by arranging the ingredients aesthetically and you’re good to go. Remember, the key is balance / both in terms of nutrients as well as colors. How about red quinoa, avocado, radish, cherry tomatoes, spring onion, chives, and fresh basil?
