Mealthy Tip

The beauty of Buddha bowls is their versatility (and all the colorful toppings). Use your favorite grain or squash variety to put this meal together. You could use quinoa, barley, or faro. Try it with kabocha or delicata squash. Aha! Maybe it's called a Buddha bowl because you're not supposed to stress about it.

Love this buddha bowl! So hearty and delicious! Such a perfect way to use the pre-chopped butternut squash at the grocery store. This is an easy recipe and tastes amazing. I also really love the green yogurt herb sauce.

These brown rice bowls were really good. I never used to like roasted butternut squash but now I can't get enough of it. This recipe makes two generous portions, that can also be divided into four light bowls. I'll be making this again soon.

Love throwing together these quick and easy grain bowls. I skipped the feta cheese, but other than that followed the recipe. This makes a lot of sauce, so I saved the rest in put it in the fridge. I'll probably use it on a salad.

This is my favorite vegetarian post-workout meal. I replaced the purple cabbage with kale, and substituted the yogurt sauce with a homemade vinaigrette. Really delicious.

Really good grain bowl, but I used quinoa instead of brown rice. I also added some water to thin out the sauce some. I put this together really quickly, and used pre-cut squash from the store.
