Sweet Potato and Edamame Buddha Bowl | Hello Brownlow
Whether you’re vegan or not, this meal is flavorful and satisfying. A buddha bowl is a big bowl of plant-goodness and that sounds like a good meal to me! This is not only an amazingly tasty dinner but it makes the most terrific lunch the next day – even if Chef Mike (your microwave) is used to reheat it. This recipe calls for Bulgar, which is a type of nutty grain that you cook just like you would quinoa. In this picture that I took for the post, I used jasmine rice. Both ways are equally as delicious. If you don’t want any sort of grain, you can sub out some fresh kale to stir in (about 1 1/2 cups should do it. Buddha bowls can also be made for fairly cheap. It was a toss up for what was more expensive: the sweet potatoes or the edamame. Luckily, my Sprouts carries frozen edamame in their store brand that was $3 cheaper than the fresh stuff (and just as good!). Since it’s so cheap and easy to make, it has become one of our favorites in our meal plan. It was originally in my $25 grocery week meal plan. And it fit in perfectly! Enjoy!!
