Buddha Bowl

In the warm months of summer, all I crave are buddha bowl for dinner. Actually, I crave buddha bowls for dinner all year round. They have the perfect combination of fresh and cooked ingredients, grains, beans, and delicious sauces. I am a huge fan of meals that combine several different textures and flavors, because eating this way helps eliminate cravings and increase satisfaction from food. Today, we are making an amazingly delicious buddha bowl. It’s easy and quick, and very flavorful. My favorite part, surprisingly, are the Brussels sprouts. I have never been a huge fan of them, until I found this genius cooking technique for them that uses absolutely no oil, but makes them taste extremely delicious, and eh, weird to say, but meaty! There is something very meaty about Brussels sprouts.  Watch the recipe video:

I also adore the sauce that this bowl comes with. It’s creamy, gingery, tangy, and makes any vegetable shine. This sauce is part of my online course, The Effortlessly Flavorful Vegan Kitchen. In the course, I teach how to create easy, delicious, and flavorful vegan meals using oil-free sauces, dips, and dressings. The focus is on making very quick meals that still taste amazing and are entirely home made and healthy. And in celebration of the opening of the second round for enrollment in The Effortlessly Flavorful Vegan Kitchen, I am excited to present to you:

Easy and Quick Vegan Buddha Bowl Recipe

Total Time 30 minutes


For the bowl

  • 1 large handful frozen green beans
  • 1 cup sweet onion chopped
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 2 cups Brussel’s sprouts chopped in half
  • ½ English cucumber or 1-2 Persian cucumbers
  • 2 green onions
  • 2 large handfuls mixed greens
  • ¼ cup sprouted brown rice
  • ¼ cup dried wakame

For the sauce

  • Make about half of this insanely delicious Asian sauce recipe here


  • Steam the green beans until soft (about 10 minutes).
  • Cook brown rice according to package instructions.
  • Dry sauté sweet onion by placing it on a hot pan for about 15 minutes, until it turns golden brown. No liquid is necessary. Simply slice it up and cover it with a lid, and allow to turn golden.
  • When onions turn golden, add the coconut aminos and Brussel’s sprouts. Cover and let cook until the Brussel’s sprouts are completely soft when pierced with a fork (about 20-30 minutes).
  • Chop up cucumber. You can do this according to my method in the video , or any other way you like.
  • Chop the green onions, and roughly chop the green beans when they are done steaming.


  • Place greens on the bottom, add brown rice, cucumber, green beans, sauted onion and Brussels sprouts, wakame, and sprinkle with green onion.
  • Drizzle with the insanely delicious Asian sauce!
