So I am super duper late to post this recipe! I know, I know. I have been a lil occupied over a project I am working on and yes, my sincere apologies for being late.
But hey! I am back. Back with the recipe you wanted so much. Always loved making and eating goddess bowls and wanted to share the same with you. Therefore, here it is. Before you scroll down, here is some information on what a ‘Buddha bowl’ exactly is. Buddha bowls aren’t really about Buddha. That is definitely the first thing you should know. They are a delicious and beautifully combined bowl with a source of protein, pack of greens and topped with a herby Green Goddess drizzle dressing. Trendy and beautiful 😀
Carrots(blanched) – 1/4 cup
Broccoli(blanched) – 1/4 cup
Baby corn(boiled) – 1/4 cup
Bell peppers- 1/4 cup
Tofu – 1/4 cup
Quinoa: 1/4 cup
Salt: to taste
Pepper: to taste
Mixed Italian herbs – to taste
1. Take a grill pan. Add oil and heat it on medium heat. Grill the broccoli,carrots,bell pepper,baby corn and tofu Paneer one by one. Season them individually with salt and pepper and some mixed herbs.
2. Take another pan, add the water. Let it boil. Add the quinoa and let it cook on simmer just as you cook rice. Add salt and oil.
3. Now it’s time to assemble. Arrange the char grilled veggies one by one and sprinkle some parsley on the top. Drizzle the juice of one lemon on top of the budhdha bowl and enjoy!
Honestly, the only tip for making this bowl is the BLANCHING technique. Blanching helps preserve the color and texture of the ingredient in all its goodness and the correct way of doing it is to briefly bowl the vegetable and then plunge them into ice water. The grilling is what gets every ingredient its actually taste, so make sure you grill at medium heat only to smoke it a little. And yes, you can brush some butter while grilling as well.
I hope you have fun making and eating this mighty bowl in all its glory. Don’t forget to send us pictures @thegirlwhobakesofficial 😉
Until next time, Happy reading and Happy baking guys!
