The January Buddha Bowl

Posted by Donna-Marie Pye on

The January Buddha Bowl
Sometimes called a "Hippie" or "Glory" bowl, a Buddah bowl is basically just a giant bowl filled with a mixture of veggies, grains, greens, nuts/seeds and and topped with a delicious dressing. As part of my January fridge clean out, I work on my cupboards too, by cooking up bit packages of grains, toasting opened packages of nuts and seeds and keeping them in the fridge or jars (in the case of nuts/seeds) for easy assembly of a simple but tasty bowl meal. Since I seem to have an abundance of sweet potatoes in my cold cellar, here is my version of the healthy, hearty Buddah bowl.

We thought this was a perfect time to share this Mexican-inspired lasagna made with simple easy ingredients that are just layered together. We used a store-bought rotisserie chicken (or see our vegetarian version suggestion) for a dish that came together in about 10 minutes. The entire family will enjoy it whether you are celebrating Mexican-style or Canadian-style Halloween.

We all love butternut squash, especially when it's at the height of season. In the fall, this is an easy dish to dress up a simple roast chicken or pork. We cook the squash then put it in our favourite baking dish with a topping of crunchy breadcrumbs and Guyere cheese. This is serious fall comfort food at it's best.
