Buddha Bowl (aka Delicious!)

Here’s what I know about Buddha Bowls –
- They are delicious and super simple to make.
- You can make them out of any combo of ingredients – protein, vegetable, grain, and dressing.
- It’s called a Buddha Bowl because it’s an overstuffed bowl resembling the belly of Buddha.
So, there you have it.
The most important part of all is that I have a delicious recipe for one and sharing it with you now! Of course, you can modify this to use what ingredients you have on hand or prefer. These are super for meal prep and packing lunches.

4 cups Butternut Squash, roasted
2.5 – 3 cups, Chicken Breast, cubed, grilled/baked/sautéed – your choice
1 Tbsp Coconut Aminos or GF Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp Smooth Peanut Butter
1 Tbsp Maple Syrup or Honey
¼ cup lime juice
1 Tbsp Sesame Oil
2 cups, Quinoa or Brown Rice

1. Make dressing - Whisk together garlic, coconut aminos (or soy sauce), peanut butter, maple syrup (or honey), and lime juice until evenly combined. Whisk in sesame oil and 1 tablespoon of olive oil until smooth.
2. Divide quinoa or rice between bowls. Top with butternut squash, and chicken.
3. Drizzle dressing on top.

Here is the recipe that inspired my version. It has more ingredients and is also delicious!
