I thought I’d share my go-to recipe for when I’m fancying a super nourishing dinner – my easy Vegan Falafel Buddha Bowl.
Ever since coming back from Morocco, I’ve really loved using cumin as they add this spice to nearly every dish over there!
Cumin goes so well in both hummus and falafels, too, which makes this Buddha bowl such a North African-inspired feast!
I made my own hummus for this Vegan Falafel Buddha Bowl and I’ve featured the recipe for it on my blog.
I love all the colours in this Vegan Falafel Buddha Bowl and you can be so creative with the different ingredients you choose for yours. You can go for oriental flavours by using soy sauce, ginger, and tofu, or Mediterranean flavours by including basil, vegan pesto, and aubergine. The flavour and ingredient variations are endless!
I love topping this Vegan Falafel Buddha Bowl with some sliced avocado to add some creamy texture, not to mention it is an amazing source of so many nutrients, like good fats and a range of vitamins and minerals that are essential for a healthy body!
Vegan Top Tip 5: Buy a pack of “ripen at home” avocados as these are usually cheaper than the ripened varieties. You can speed up the ripening process by placing the avocados in a paper bag over a couple of days or by putting them next to a banana in the fruit bowl.
Even though the official National Healthy Eating Week has come to an end, it doesn’t mean your healthy diet has to! In fact, it should become a healthy lifestyle, which is far more sustainable than anything short-term, and it has life-long benefits. I will be writing about “how to make a healthy diet a lifestyle” in the near future so make sure to subscribe to get notified once I’ve posted it!
