Buddha Bowl

Hippocrates once said “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.
Although I can be found inhaling Malteaser Bunnies on the regular, I do listen to my body and know when I am in need of some proper nourishment and healing. 

Cue the Buddha Bowl - Named aptly for it's full, rounded appearance like mine Buddha's belly.

For this heaped bowl of goodness you will need: 
  • Roasted Root Veggies - I go for whatever I have rolling around my shelves - Sweet potato, squash, carrots, onion. 
  • Steamed Kale
  • Tin of chickpeas 
  • Spices - Again I use whatever is to hand, usually a mix of turmeric - The most fabulous anti-inflammatory spice. Crushed chillies - A bit of spice never hurt no one. Paprika - Because I have 3 bags in the cupboard and I put it with EVERYTHING. A sprinkle of ground ginger - Adds a nice kick & cumin - Because I love the flavour.
  • Cherry Tomato's
  • Broccoli
  • Peas
  • Olive oil
  • Halloumi
  • Houmous 
  • Seed mix
  • Salt & pepper

How to:
  • Chop your veg and pop in a roasting dish, add a drizzle of oil, S&P and a sprinkle of crushed chillies. Put in the oven for around 45/60 mins. (If you are adding onion/tomatoes do this after the veg have been in around 30 mins or they will burn)
  • Drain your chickpeas and make your spice mix - in a small bowl, add a generous drizzle of olive oil and S&P then a teaspoon of tumeric, chillies, paprika, cumin and 1/4 teaspoon of ginger. Pour over your chickpeas and give it a wiggle. I fry these in coconut oil for about 5/10 mins. I do this when the roast veg has been in for 45 mins. 
  • Steam your greens for around 7 - 9 mins.
  • Once your chickpeas are toasty, put in a side bowl and add a dollop of coconut oil and start to cook your halloumi in the same pan. All the flavours from the spices make it extra tasty and the coconut oil gives it a subtle sweetness.
  • Once all is cooked, add your greens as a base, then throw your roast veg on, sprinkle a handful of chickpeas on, add a dollop of houmous, sprinkle your seeds over, add your halloumi and finish with a drizzle of olive oil and pepper. 

So whenever I'm feeling a little run down or have had an unhealthy day, I swap my Buddha belly for a Buddha bowl and instantly feel better.

Buddha, You da best.
