Do you ever have your meals all planned out and then you get a whiff of something delicious and you want to chuck your current plans and make something else?
This week has been a weird week because I worked the weekend/had a day off/started vacation today, so I needed to have enough food for lunches/dinners but not too much food that I would be throwing out stuff before leaving.
Over the weekend, I had made pizza that was going to be two days of lunches/dinners. By dinner on Monday night, I was not in the mood for pizza for the fourth major meal in a row. And then my nose caught the scent of crisp rice, ginger, and soy from the Chinese takeaway place down the street. AND I NEEDED CHINESE ASAP.
But being the sensible person I am, I reigned myself in and went home and had pizza.
But I knew that I needed to make something with all that delicious Asian flavor for lunch on my off day.
And this Vegan Green Buddha Bowl was born!
It features Banza’s new chickpea rice and edamame for protein, sautéed brown garlic green beans for the veggie portion, and avocado for the heart-healthy fat!
Also, sriracha + avocado is a revelation.…
