Spring Buddha Bowl

If I had to live off one thing for the rest of my life, I would no doubt choose vegan buddha bowls. They are glow-rious, vibrant, balanced, beautiful, wholesome and delicious. I just love throwing together seasonal vegetables, some whole grains, and legumes, topped with delicious dressing and calling it a meal.

This buddha bowl has seasonal vegetables, quinoa, chickpeas, guacamole with a yoghurt-mustard dressing. To save yourself on time, you can cook the quinoa ahead of time perhaps the night before.
