NOTE: I got my forbidden rice from Amazon (this 6 pack) but you can also find it at Whole Foods, Sprouts, and basically any grocery store that has an International aisle.
Vegan Buddha Bowl with Peanut Sauce
1 cup quinoa, prepared
1 cup forbidden rice, prepared as directed on package (I got it here)
1 can chickpeas
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1 clove garlic, diced (tiny)
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1/2 avocado, sliced
1/2 baked potato, cube
tamari sauce (gluten-free soy sauce)
peanut sauce (recipe below directions)
Cook quinoa and forbidden rice as directed on packages.
Coat chickpeas with lime juice, paprika, garlic, and grated ginger. Roast in skillet until slightly brown.
Divide quinoa, chickpeas, potatoes, and rice in a bowl. Top with slices of tomato, avocado, spinach, and clover sprouts. Sprinkle with tamari sauce and peanut sauce.
I'll have the peanut sauce pictures in the next recipe (I use it for everything!) but here's the recipe:

2/3 cup plain peanuts
quarter size chunk of ginger
1 small pearl onion
squeeze of lime
salt and pepper
1/2 serrano chili

Blend until smooth. Enjoy!
What is a Buddha Bowl?
Buddha bowls, sometimes referred to as glory or hippie bowls, are hearty, filling dishes made of various greens, raw or roasted veggies, beans and a healthy grain like quinoa or brown rice. Sometimes they also include toppings like nuts, seeds and dressings for added texture and flavor. – Source
