Buddha bowl
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 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 a bowl which is packed so full that it has a rounded "belly" appearance on the top, much like the belly of  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.
 
This Greek Buddha bowl is a great vegetarian dish, which is fun, easy to make and delicious. It will give you all those extra vitamins and proteins you need after winter.
