If you're following my Weight Watchers journey, you know how strongly I feel about the…
Quinoa Buddha Bowl (Vegan)
What is a Buddha Bowl? Well, there's some debate surrounding this question because everyone makes theirs differently. Is it only a Buddha Bowl if you eat it with fancy chopsticks? I say it's a Buddha Bowl if it's high protein goodness in a bowl… and that's what this is!
If you use the avocado each bowl is 5 points, if you don't you are looking at ONLY 2 points!
Quinoa Buddha Bowl
1/2 cup dry quinoa
1 can black beans
1 ear of corn
1/2 sliced avocado
6 cherry tomatoes
1-2 tbsp salsa
Makes 2 Buddha Bowls!
Combine 1⁄2 cup dry quinoa with 1 cup water in a small pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and cook, covered, for around 15 minutes. When fully cooked, set aside.
Bake corn in the oven with leaves still on, directly on oven rack, for 20 minutes. While still warm, peel all leaves, put the cob in a saute’ pan, and cook on the stovetop over high heat for a few minutes on each side until kernels start to brown. Cut the ends off and then cut cob in half to make two pieces.
Drain, rinse and cook the black beans.
Build your Buddha bowl: Start with 1 cup quinoa, add in 1/2 cup black beans, 1/2 cherry tomatoes, 1/2 avocado slices, one slice corn cob. Top with salsa.
