Buddha Bowls

This is a new lunch I have been packing for everyone.   These are healthy, tasty and full of fiber.                                         
 The idea came about because of my bi-monthly CSA box.  Last week I got 1 Hubbard squash and 3 beets along with some other assorted vegetables.  I just couldn't figure out what to do with 3 beets and 1 squash so I cubed them, tossed them in olive oil and sprinkled them with salt and pepper and roasted them in a 400 degree oven until they browned on the edges.

 I shredded some Napa cabbage and placed it in the bottom of each bowl.

 I topped the cabbage with a scoop of brown rice and then added the beets, squash, some of the leftover yellow lentils from the other day and some black beans.  I sauteed some fresh spinach in sesame oil and added a touch of soy sauce, sprinkled it with sesame seeds and added this too.

I topped it with a sliced hard boiled egg.  I made a dressing with tahini, lemon, milk, garlic and maple syrup and drizzled it over top of it all.  I sprinkled on some minced fresh parsley and cilantro too.

Sounds fabulous. Also sounds like you got some of the same veggies in your CSA box as we did. Lots of beets this time of the year. I usually juice them along with the millions of carrots we also receive. I did make a salad at Thanksgiving, though, with shredded carrots/beets and bulgur. We all liked that, too.

OMG!! I love eating like that. Lots of great nutritious veggies with no heavy meat. Nice and lite. That gives me an idea. The weather in the coming week will be warm here, so I'll just keep the meals lite with Buddha bowls and salad meals instead of stews and chilis.
