BUILDING YOUR BUDDHA BOWL - DIRECTIONS BELOW
Roasted Beet and Chickpea Buddha Bowl
3-5 medium sized beets
1 cup quinoa or your choice of grain
Pickled Onions1 sliced red onion
red wine vinegar & white wine vinegar to fill half the jar
filtered water to fill the half the jar
5 tsp sea salt
3 tsp coconut sugar
Roasted Chickpeas1 or 2 cans chickpeas I do 2 cans (double everything else if you do 2)
3 tbsp olive oil
5 tsp sea salt
¼ tbsp paprika (I'm very generous with seasoning chickpeas)
¼ tbsp of both onion & garlic salt
Honey Glazed Walnuts1 cup walnuts
1 tbsp honey
½ tbsp balsamic vinegar or use a balsamic glaze
- Preheat oven to 425℉
- Put your quinoa or your choice of grain on to cook however you like it
- Pickle your onions the night before, or do this step first so they sit longer
- Slice your red onion and place in a jar or container
- Fill just over half of the jar with red wine vinegar and white wine vinegar, fill the rest with boiling filtered water. Add your salt and sugar. Stir and cover and place on the fridge to pickle
- Wrap your beets individually in tinfoil and place them on a baking sheet. No need to peel, the skin will easily come off when they are softened! Place into preheated oven to bake. This takes about 40-50 minutes depending on the size of your beets. When you can poke a fork through them they are done
- Strain and rinse your chickpeas, and season with olive oil, paprika, salt, garlic and onion salt (we love to add lots of seasoning). Place in the oven (beside the beets) on a parchment lined sheet - this takes about 30 minutes to get crispy and golden
- Add walnuts, sea salt, honey and balsamic to a frying pan and allow them to roast on low-medium heat. I let them roast for about 10-20 minutes
- Add all your dressing ingredients, including your mushroom extracts, to a glass jar and mix well!
- Assemble your bowl, starting with your quinoa, arugula and greens, then your diced beets, roasted chickpeas and walnuts! Top with sliced avocado, goat cheese, your pickled onions and sprouts! Drizzle your desired amount of dressing on top and enjoy!
