Spanish Buddha Bowl

What is a Buddha Bowl? A vegetarian dish whose main components include: a whole grain, a protein, veggies, dressing, and a topping.  It’s a fun play on a traditional salad, allowing you to create a balanced meal catered directly to your taste (or what you have on hand).   

½ cup Guacamole, homemade or Linvilla-made 

1 can of Black beans 


Grape Tomatoes 

Bell Peppers, sliced 

Radishes shaved thin  

Scallion, sliced thin 

Shredded lettuce, any variety 

Lime wedge 

Chipotle sauce ** 

Start with a deep, flat-bottom bowl or bento box.   

Place guacamole in the middle then arrange the next 7 ingredients in a circular pattern.  Squeeze lime wedge all over and drizzle with chipotle sauce if you want an added kick.  

*I used Kitchen&Love Spanish-style quinoa. Pre-seasoned and microwaves in 90 seconds, it’s a fast and easy way to add whole grains.  

**I used Terrapin Ridge Spicy Chipotle squeeze as my drizzle. Not a fan of spice? Skip it or choose something milder.
