Hey Mamas, welcome back to the blog! Today I am sharing one of my favorite and most versatile recipes that our family enjoys; the buddha bowl! There are a million different ways to make these bowls and today we are sharing the Vegan Green Goddess Buddha Bowl version. I could eat green goddess dressing every single day if I could!

This recipe comes together in just about 30 minutes (depending on your oven) and is mostly hands-off. I like to bake an extra-large batch of all of the vegetables to last me a few days. If you have two baking sheets, be sure to use those! Feel free to toss in any vegetables that are on their last days of use in the refrigerator as well. Buddha bowls are a great way to stop food waste from happening because you can toss in anything!

Let’s chat about a few of the benefits of this amazing bowl!

Benefits of…

Sweet Potatoes

  • A rich source of fiber which promotes a healthy digestive system.
  • Contains many vitamins and minerals including iron, calcium, selenium, and they’re a good source of most of our B vitamins and vitamin C.
  • High in an antioxidant known as beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A once consumed!

Avocado

  • While most fruits are high in carbohydrates, avocados are high in wonderful healthy fats!
  • Avocados are very nutritious and contain a wide variety of nutrients, including 20 different vitamins and minerals.
  • High in Vitamin K, Folate, Vitamin C, Potassium, Vitamin B5 & B6, and Vitamin E!
  • Contain more potassium than bananas!
  • Avocados tend to be rich in fiber — about 7% by weight, which is very high compared to most other foods. Fiber may have important benefits for weight loss and metabolic health.

Parsley

  • EXCELLENT source of Vitamin C.
  • Parsley is a nutritional powerhouse with vitamins A, B, C and K and the minerals iron and potassium.
  • Fantastic to kill bloat and reduce water weight.
  • It’s a natural diuretic, which helps to eliminate excess fluid without depleting the body of potassium.
  • Aids in balancing blood sugar, helping with long-term weight balance. It also plays a key role in preventing the degenerative effects of diabetes on the liver.

Notes

**You can easily add any vegetables to this recipe. I love to add carrots, broccoli and even a rainbow of bell peppers!
**If it is hard to find avocados right now, simply omit from the recipe and blend as is. The sauce is still amazing. You can add in soaked nuts for the creamy texture.
