Buddha bowl with tahini dressing

buddha bowl

Veggies, veggies, my lovely veggiiiiies ūüíö
Raw or cooked, leaf or root, you always make me feel happy!

Think I'm gonna write a song: be ready for the next hit!

Okay, I'm sorry. I definitely must stop trying to be funny... It's quite awkward...

Bowl stuffs are always the best, and Buddha bowl is one of my fav' of them: colorful, mix of textures and flavors, healthy ingredients... And never boring since you can vary all of the components and dressing.

Here, I want to share one kind of Buddha bowl: rice, cooked and raw veggies and a savory tahini dressing.

What for me, it's a kind of easy dish I make by using my rice cooker and a microwave steamer but it's just the laziest way to prepare it. Making a Buddha bowl has to stay affordable for everyone and so doesn't require any specific equipment. You surely can use a regular pot, a steamer or even your oven instead. The most important part is the dressing which still raw.


- 1 portion of cooked rice
- 1/2 yellow carrot
- 1/2 purple carrot
- a little piece of butternut squash
- a few red bell pepper slices
- a few radish slices
- a few basil leaves
- 2 sherry tomatoes

 for the dressing: 

- 1tbs tahini
- 1/2ts garlic powder
- 1ts paprika
- 1tbs lemon juice
- 1ts dried herbs
- a sprinkle of salt
- water to adjust consistency


Cut carrots and squash and cook them the way you want (steamed veggies is the best!)
Mix in a bowl all of the ingredients for the dressing. Combine well.
In a large bowl, put rice and add your cooked and raw veggies. Sprinkle a little bit of sesame seeds.

Pour as much dressing as you want and enjoy!

    1. Thank you for your nice comment!
      I have this skill: turning every simple situation into an annoying song. For exemple, I hate "Il est o√Ļ le bonheur" by C. Ma√©. But, everytime I'm looking for something, guess which lyrics I've got on my mind? Not that easy to live with it...
