ASIAN BUDDHA BOWL

Asian Buddha Bowl is a flavorful combination of Asian veggies with quinoa that is perfect for lunch or dinner. It is highly nutritious, especially in plant protein, yet low in carbs.

Chinese eggplant and Bok Choy are two of my favorite vegetables and I make them quite often. Another recipe with these vegetables on my blog is SWEET & SPICY THAI and VEGGIE RAMEN SOUP. You may take a look if you are an Asian food and veggie lover.

Speaking of Asian veggies, I must not forget, Napa cabbage and Chinese broccoli. However, there is even more that I have not even tried yet. Well, I am planning to, I just have to do some research, so I know more about them. Even though I live in Canada, we are lucky to have available fruits and veggies from all parts of the World. I am always amazed, but at the same time clueless, when I walk into an Asian supermarket! This applies not only to produce but also, to mushrooms, noodles, and most of all spices!

However, I must say that my knowledge and cooking skills of Asian food have become much broader since I became vegan. This is mainly because Asian cuisine is primarily plant-based and flavorful without the need for any animal products. As you can see, this Asian Buddha Bowl is free of processed food, as well, yet delicious and high in protein.
