In effort to start 2016 off on the right foot, I want to share an extremely healthy go-to dish I like to make my family on those crazy midweek nights I don’t have time to prepare a big meal, the Mean Green Buddha Bowl.

This simple veggie-based dinner bowl is:

  • Packed with nutrients
  • Low in fat and calories
  • Dairy free
  • Gluten free
  • Paleo
  • Vegetarian
  • Can be easily made vegan
  • And you don’t have to be a follower of Buddha or a health-nut to enjoy it. *wink*

(A Buddha Bowl is just a vegetarian meal in a bowl.)

Even if green isn’t your favorite color when it comes to food, you should give it a try!

You can get fancy with veggie bowls. Yet in the effort of simplifying life for 2016, I’ve kept this Mean Green Buddha Bowl down to just a handful of ingredients.

Roasted Broccoli

Here I’ve combined wilted swiss chard, steamed edamame, roasted broccoli, fresh sliced avocado, salsa verde, and cilantro into a easy green dish you can feel good about eating.

The salsa verde acts as the sauce for all the veggies, while the roasted broccoli offers an earthy charred quality.

Even though the color scheme in monotone, there’s a lot of contrast in flavor and texture in this bowl!

If you’re looking for a little extra protein in your veggie bowl, add a sunny side up egg on top. The warm runny yolks adds richness to the veggies. However, it’s great with a scrambled egg as well.

The avocado, edamame, and egg help keep you feeling full for hours.

    This looks delicious!  How do you make such a beautiful fried egg?  My fried eggs always have that weird burned edge.

      Hi Cherolyn! Try frying them in a nonstick skillet on medium to medium-low heat. Happy Cooking!

    What could I use instead of edamame? I’m afraid I won’t be able to buy it where I live.

      Hi Ilona!

      What about fava beans, lima beans, or even some variety of white beans?

    This dish is amazing! I need to increase my avocado intake so I’m researching various yummy recipes and your recipe was a big hit! The only change I made was omitting the salsa verde and made a cilantro lime dressing instead. I couldn’t find salsa verde in the grocery store (they were out) but the cilantro lime dressing worked just fine. I was very surprised the egg worked so well with the dish. This is a keeper!
