When I first heard about this little bowl, I actually thought we don’t need that here. We already have many different bowl recipes, such as my vegan Buddha Bowl, my Fitness Chicken and Rice Bowl or my healthy “Europe” Buddha Bowl.

But I was taught a lesson. Because, I just tried the bowl and what can I say: Awesome just how quick and delicious this little bowl is.

That’s why I think we should just start with the recipe before I talk too much again.

My tip for the recipe:

Personally, I think you don’t have to peel the potatoes beforehand as long as you wash them thoroughly. Because the potato peel has many healthy vitamins and minerals, which is why it would be a shame to remove them. At the same time, it creates a delicious rustic look.

Tip # 2 for this vegetarian Buddha bowl:

If you don’t feel like brushing the potatoes with oil by hand, I recommend this olive oil spray. That makes the preparation a lot easier! At the same time you use much less oil and save a few calories.
