Homemade Buddha Bowls
Did you know that Buddha Bowls are “one of the year’s top-emerging food trends”? It’s true. Buzzfeed says so. Naturally, as huge trendsetters, we made our own on Sunday night.
Truthfully, we had sweet potatoes and a can of chickpeas in the pantry, and I built the idea of the bowls from there.
It’s true what they say about cooking with kids creating better eaters– anytime Lila helps in the kitchen, she’s definitely way more likely to actually try the food. Even a meal like this, which she would probably totally turn her nose up at otherwise.
The bowls started with sautéed kale:
Then finally they were topped with avocado, pumpkin seeds, and a sauce of lemon juice, maple syrup, and tahini. It sounds weird, but the maple syrup was the perfect balance of sweetness with the lemon and tahini.
Great quick and easy dinner!
