This Vegetarian Rainbow Buddha Bowl with turmeric tahini sauce is a delicious meal full of nourishing ingredients that is healthy, filling and satisfying! Great for meal prepping healthy lunches (vegetarian, vegan option)
I have had a serious obsession with this Rainbow Buddha Bowl lately. It is the most delicious meal filled with all of my favorite things – beets, brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, and avocado. Oh and eggs. Always eggs. I just can’t get enough of this amazing, nourishing bowl.
Not only is this beautiful rainbow buddha bowl super tasty, but it’s also loaded with nutritious whole foods. The combination of whole grain farro, colorful veggies and avocado provide healthy, filling fiber, heart-healthy fat, and tons of vitamins and antioxidants. This vegetarian bowl also has tons of filling protein. All finished off with a luxurious drizzle of my newest sauce obsession – turmeric tahini sauce. OMG.
I mean the sauce alone is enough motivation to make these this yummy rainbow buddha bowl. I could seriously eat it with a spoon. It’s that stinkin’ good. Do I have you drooling yet?
A rainbow buddha makes an amazing vegetarian breakfast, lunch or dinner. They are perfect for meal prepping and eating straight from the fridge for healthy, delicious meals. Simply portion everything out into containers instead of bowls for a quick grab and go breakfast, lunch or dinner that’s ready when you are! They can also easily be made vegan by leaving off the eggs. I’m currently loving farro, but any whole grain will work in this yummy rainbow buddha bowl! Use quinoa or brown rice for a gluten-free bowl. Or leave out the grains completely if you want!
