This Egg Roll Buddha Bowl is a Paleo and Whole30 meal-in-a-bowl with a vegan option!
Hey there! I hope this little “Buddha Bowl” brightens your day a little! There’s just something about eating things in bowl form that makes them that much tastier . . . you know what I mean? Not to mention, things are much easier to Paleo-ize when you don’t have to worry about a grain-free bun or wrapper. (Case in point: burger bowls, taco bowls, burrito bowls . . .)
I’m in love with Buddha Bowls right now, and why shouldn’t I be? Buddha bowls are practically overflowing with vegetables, and they’re delicious! I wanted to try my hand at a Paleo version, since most Buddha bowls are vegan. Typical ingredients in a Buddha bowl are chickpeas, tofu, and brown rice, which aren’t Paleo. I subbed in some yummy garlic-ginger chicken and cauliflower rice to make a Whole30 bowl! If you’re vegan or vegetarian, feel free to substitute tofu for the chicken!
These egg roll buddha bowls come together with just a few simple ingredients:
- Cauliflower rice, flavored with coconut aminos and green onions
- Simple garlic-ginger chicken (or tofu)
- Shredded cabbage and carrots
- Scrambled eggs
- A sprinkle of sesame seeds
That’s all! Everything can be made quickly in 35 minutes or less, which makes these perfect to make on a meal prep day. I know I would look forward to my lunch break even more if I had one of these bowls waiting for me!These egg roll buddha bowls are the perfect takeout-fakeout! Click To Tweet
These bowls have all the flavor of an egg roll in a bowl, which makes them the perfect fake takeout! (Or is it “fakeout”?) Before I made these egg roll buddha bowls, I disliked Asian food — I’m not sure why. Although Mexican food is still my favorite, these bowls made me develop an appreciation for Asian cuisine.
I’m so excited for you to try these egg roll buddha bowls! They’re
