These Buddha bowls are terrific! The flavor is outstanding, they are easy to make and great for meal prepping. There are just a few steps and then Voila you have lunch made for the next few days. You can also freeze these.
To start, roast your vegetables. You can choose whatever you like. For this, I used beets, sweet potatoes, and root vegetables. Drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast at 400℉ for 40 minutes.
While vegetables are roasting, prepare your chicken. I used Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette as my marinade. I just poured it on and then fried. I did not marinate this for any length of time. I do believe it would be too strong if you did. This turned out perfect!
Next, you want to prepare your Quinoa. I used chicken broth vs water. You can also use vegetable broth. 2 cups of broth and one cup of quinoa. Bring broth to boil, add quinoa and simmer, covered for 10 min. Please refer to your package directions.
Its assembly time. Add vegetables, quinoa, and chicken to your bowls. I also like to add avocado, fresh cilantro, and a lime wedge. Sprinkle quinoa with some of the cilantro lime vinaigrette . You know have the most flavorful bowl and its all healthy!!
This recipe will make up about 4-5 bowls.Print
