Mediterranean Buddha Bowl


Here is a DELICIOUS bowl of flavors which will satisfy your hunger and give you the perfect nourishment for your body. Pretty simple to put together. The dressing I made for this recipe was so zesty, which takes this bowl a level up.

One of the best things about this bowl is that it has a variety of nutrient dense foods, which makes it so perfect in so many ways. It is plant-based but chicken, eggs, beef or salmon can be added as well.


Here’s what you’ll need

One cup cooked quinoa


Half of medium sized red & green bell pepper


Half of yellow squash
