Spicy Buddha bowl

On a whim, Marti decided she wanted to try something new for dinner. Inspired by the amazing bowls we ate at Prasad while in Portland a couple of years ago, she came across this Spicy Buddha bowl from the Crazy Vegan Kitchen.

We modified it a little by leaving the red cabbage raw and doing the sweet potato in the microwave for ease and speed.

I was expecting that it would be nice, for sure, but to say that I was blown away was an understatement. I literally couldn’t stop eating and demolished the whole thing in a matter of minutes, leaving me feeling very full and satisfied!


The maple syrup on the chickpeas give them a nice sweet flavour, and the cayenne in the sauce gives it a nice little kick.

It was so good that we ended up eating it again tonight (two days after we first tried it) and switched it up a little with cannellini beans instead of chickpeas.

I can’t recommend it enough. If you’re vegan and in a rut, this is a delicious, nutrient-packed change of pace from your usual go-tos.
