I showed you guys my Buddha Bowl in my Instagram story a couple of days ago. And the overwhelming majority of you wanted to have the recipe for it. To be honest, it was not that easy. I really change the composition of my bowl every time I made it. But isn’t that just the beauty of the Buddha Bowl? You can just use whatever is left in your fridge!
Soba Noodles, Tofu & a lot of veggies
My go to ingredients in such a kind of bowls are soba noodles, avocado and tofu. And this bowl is really perfect to share my favorite tofu marinade with you. Because let’s be honest! Plain tofu itself tastes rather boring. That’s why I find it so important to spice it up with a tasty seasoning or marinade.
Besides these three basic ingredients I like to fill my bowl with broccoli, edamame and mushrooms. Since I belong to the kind of people who simply do not need a sauce to complete their meal, I always eat my Bowl without a dressing. In my eyes a creamy avocado and the various flavor components are more than enough. But if you would like to have a sauce to go with it, you are welcome to serve this bowl with my low-calorie peanut sauce.
I hope you like the recipe. As I said, feel free to exchange the single components. In my opinion, Buddha Bowls are the ideal way to use your leftovers in the tastiest way. 🙂
As always I am looking forward to your feedback and comments.
See you for the next recipe! 🙂
