100 Nourishing One-Bowl Meals
Kelli Foster

Buddha bowls, occasionally called “bliss bowls,” “nourish bowls” or “power bowls,” are the ultimate in one-dish meals. You start with a base of whole grains, rice, noodles or legumes. Then you layer on a generous assortment of cooked or raw vegetables. Finally, you top the veggies with a boost of protein and then a dressing, sauce or broth. Buddha bowls are an easy, healthy meal that can be ready in minutes and that you can have for breakfast, lunch or dinner - or, if you like, all three!
The Buddha bowl concept is loosely based on guidance from Chinese medicine: a meal should have vegetables, protein and grain. Typically, in a Buddha bowl there is a high ratio of ingredients to broth or sauce and the ingredients are left whole or in large pieces and not blended, minced or pureed. Although it is Asian in inspiration, a Buddha bowl can be made with a variety of ingredients from just about anywhere on the planet.
Kelli Foster, who writes about food for the popular website The Kitchen, serves up in these pages an amazing variety of Buddha bowl ideas, each one vibrant with colour, alive with flavour and oh-so-comforting to eat. Can you think of a heartier way to start the day than with a Blackberry Millet Breakfast Bowl, a Coconut Quinoa Breakfast Bowl or a Chai-Spiced Multigrain Porridge Bowl, just three among many breakfast bowl ideas?
Later in the day, for cozy meals with loved ones, how about Warm Autumn Chicken and Wild Rice Bowls, Sesame Tuna Bowls or Lamb Kebab Bowls? For company, Lentil and Smoked Salmon Nicoise Bowls or Miso Noodle Bowls with Stir-Fried Beef will delight your guests. There are many vegan recipes, too, from Cauliflower Falafel Power Bowls to Spicy Sesame Tofu and Rice Bowls and beyond. A special chapter on fruit bowls has ideas for power-snacking, as well as for meals.
Buddha bowls are elegant in appearance and flavour, but surprisingly easy to make - a perfect marriage of convenience and good taste. If you haven't tried them yet, now you have a great reason!
