  • Avo
  • Spinach
  • Hummus
  • Red pepper, onion and garlic sauce
  • Sweet potato
  • Quinoa
  • Sprouts

1. Get your sauces ready. Chop some red pepper and onion and place it in a cooking tray with two cloves of garlic, some feta and olive oil. Place this in the oven and cook for 20 minutes until all ingredients are well cooked. (season to liking).

2. Once this has cooled down, blend this with a little bit of almond milk or plain yoghurt until smooth. 

3. Chop your sweet potato into cubes and cook in the oven with some olive oil for 20 minutes until cooked. 

4. For some home made hummus, take a cup of chickpeas, a teaspoon of tahini, one teaspoon of cumin, two tablespoons of olive oil, lemon juice (half a lemon squeezed) and half a teaspoon salt. Blend this in a food processor or blender until smooth (ad a splash of water if you are struggling to blend it). Adjust to taste.

5. Chop your chicken breasts into cubes and cook it with some ghee (or coconut oil) in a pan. Season with some salt. You can also add your spice of preference.

6. Boil your quinoa until cooked. 

7. Place all your ingredients in a bowl with your own creativity and top off with some sprouts and seeds. 

Enjoy your nutritious and delicious Buddha bowl!
