Buddha what? Named after the round belly of Buddha himself, these vibrant bowls, sometimes referred to as “hippie bowls,” are filled to the brim with a nutritious mix of some or all of the following: vegetables, legumes, grains, nuts, seeds, and sauces. They’re simple to make, pretty to look at, and remarkably filling. They’re especially popular among vegans and vegetarians, as they’re typically protein-rich without containing any meat, poultry, fish, eggs, or cheese. Popular mix-ins like beans, chickpeas, ancient grains, nuts, and even tofu are packed with protein and fiber, making for a hearty dish that promotes muscle-building and a healthy digestive system.
