Another day and another variation of the Buddha Bowl! Made this amazing Buddha bowl a few days back but have been lazy in uploading the recipe. The best part about this was that it was made out of all the fresh winter veggies and was exceptionally delicious. It was packed with fibre and all the necessary nutrients.
The hero of this Buddha bowl was sweet potatoes, green grams, beetroot and baby corn on the cob. Spiced them lightly to form a light and nutritious dinner.
