How to Make Buddha Bowls

Step 1 – The Basics

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet to bake the brussel sprouts.

Chop the brussel sprouts in halves and bake them for 15  minutes or until golden brown. Flip them over after the first 8 minutes so both sides are evenly cooked.

Chop cauliflower into florets and place them in the food processor to make the cauliflower rice. Then saute it in a skillet with a tbsp of olive oil for 15-20 minutes. Or until soft and golden.

Chop tofu into slices or cubes and saute in a pan with a tbsp of olive oil until golden brown on both sides.

Chop cherries into halves and set aside.

Step 2 – Make the Best Buddha Bowl Dressing

To make the dressing: place all the ingredients in a jar and whisk them until they’re combined.

Step 3 – Enjoy

Arrange this keto buddha bowl by adding baked brussel sprout, cherry tomatoes, tofu, sliced avocado, and arugula. Garnish with sunflower and sesame seeds and finally drizzle with the homemade dressing.

Recipe Notes

Buddha Bowls are a great source of energy; they are known because of being highly nutritious. Feel free to replace quinoa with other grains or pseudo-grains like rice or buckwheat.

Tips: 

  • Replace tofu with any other protein of your choice. 
  • Replace arugula with any other greens
  • Always try to keep avocado; their good fatty acids help us better process the proteins from the other foods.
