This taco hummus buddha bowl is easy to put together and is jammed packed with healthy ingredients: heaps of corn, beans, alfalfa sprouts, avocado, chickpeas, and hummus served over quinoa. It also an easy meal to transport by layering it in a mason jar!
After making this taco hummus recipe, I kind of had a looooot of hummus leftover (I could only eat so much before I felt like exploding) so I decided to try my hand at making a Buddha Bowl with what I had in the fridge.
I think this is the first time I’ve made a Buddha Bowl at home! Before eating at Fresh, I never even heard of a Buddha Bowl. My experience with these bowls were pretty much a bowl the size of my head filled with veggies on top of rice. According to Delish.com, “there are no strict guidelines when defining a Buddha Bowl—the proteins, vegetables, grains and dressing vary. In essence, it’s an overstuffed bowl resembling the belly of Buddha.” So I wasn’t too far off the unofficial definition.
To go with the leftover taco hummus, I had some toppings (corn, black bean, an avocado) in my fridge leftover from taco night so I thought why not a “taco” bowl. I also had some leftover chickpeas from making the hummus so I threw that onto the bowl too. By the end of it, the bowl started resembling a Buddha Bowl as it started piling up on top of the quinoa…thus the Taco Hummus Buddha Bowl was born! It is so easy to make! It literally takes 15 minutes (unless you have to soak your chickpeas and beans) and is easy to throw together or into a mason jar if you want an easily transported lunch/dinner!
