Lentil and Brussels Sprouts Buddha Bowl

Love buddha bowls? This yummy, all-in-one bowl features lentils, brussels sprouts, roasted tomatoes, avocado and kale for a healthy, delicious meal!

I am here for the buddha bowl trend, and am pretty sure I’ll still be eating them long after they’ve had their day in the sun.

I’ve shared before how to make a buddha bowl, but basically it’s just several ingredients served in a bowl. Most buddha bowls consist of some greens, a grain or beans, some veggies, and dressing.

I make buddha bowls often for lunch or dinner, and today, I want to share one of my very favorites with you!

This healthy and delicious buddha bowl features kale, lentils, brussel sprouts, roasted tomatoes, sliced avocado, and a spicy tahini dressing. It is a perfect fall recipe idea and is so so good!

What is a Buddha Bowl?

But first, let’s talk about some of my favorite components for a buddha bowl (also called a power bowl or grain bowl).

My favorite base for buddha bowls is kale.

I always massage my kale with a little bit of extra virgin olive oil to improve it’s texture. Next, I love to add brown rice and/or lentils or chickpeas to my bowls!

Roasted veggies are a must for a healthy and filling buddha bowl. I usually use brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower and/or onions. All depending on what I have in my fridge.

Toppings like roasted or sun dried tomatoes, avocado, nuts or seeds, or hummus are next, and I always top my bowl with some sort of dressing.

For this bowl, I used a Cava-brand spicy lime tahini dressing that I found at Lidl. Often, though, I just use olive oil, vinegar or lemon juice, and salt and pepper for an easy and delicious dressing.
