Recipe: Buddha Bowl

Buddha Bowls can have just about any ingredients in them. I’ve seen them in all sorts of flavors. Having munchkins running around the house though, I had to make something kid friendly.


1 cup tri-color quinoa
1/2 cucumber
2 carrots
2 cups broccoli slaw
sesame seeds
Trader Joe’s Soyaki sauce (if you want this to be gluten free, drop this ingredient)

Cook the quinoa per the instructions, normally it’s a 2-to-1 ratio, 2 cups of water to 1 cup of quinoa.

Chop and cook down the carrots until they are soft but not mushy.

Cook broccoli slaw with a little water and the soyaki until soft like an el dente noodle.

Dice cucumber.

Once all cooked spoon out quinoa evenly into 4 bowls. Add a heaping spoonful of the carrots, cukes and broccoli slaw like pictured. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.

*depending on taste, you may want to add a bit extra of soyaki to your bowl and mix.
