This Greek Buddha bowl is not only a great vegetarian dish, but also easy to make and delicious.

If there’s one food trend to get on board with in 2017, it is Buddha bowls.

By now you probably know Buddha bowls are healthy, trendy and beautiful, but besides that, you may not know what exactly is in them. There are no strict guidelines when defining a Buddha bowl; the proteins, vegetables, grains and dressing vary.

According to the urban dictionary, a Buddha bowl is one packed so full that it has a rounded “belly” appearance on the top much like the belly of a buddha.

Essentially, Buddha bowls are colourful, filling dishes built in a large bowl and composed of grains, veggies (raw, sautéed and/or roasted), protein (legumes, tofu or meat), greens and seeds and, to finish it all off, a hearty dressing.
