Beans in Buddha Bowls

If you follow popular food accounts on Instagram, you’ve probably seen your fair share of Buddha Bowls. No one knows quite how they came to be called by this name, but they are a popular way of building healthful meals that also have culinary and visual appeal. They also provide a creative way to use leftovers.

Beans are always at home in Buddha bowls, which often emphasize plant proteins. To make a Buddha bowl, arrange servings of grains or potatoes, brightly colored vegetables, and beans around a bowl. Drizzle dressing –those made from nuts or tahini are popular—over everything and dig in.
