Vegan Rice & Cashew Buddah Bowl

A Buddha Bowl consists of a meal-sized bowl filled with simple pure food and then enjoyed with gratitude. I absolutely love this concept and it promotes exactly what I believe about nutrition and food.

Make sure to fuel your body with plants, enjoy being healthy. Thrive on a lifestyle that will also make you grow inside. Learn, educate yourself. Ask yourself questions, and don’t be scared to find the right answers.

If you could live a healthy lifestyle of abundance without restrictions. If you could choose to live a life of compassion without hurting other beings. Why wouldn’t you choose this lifestyle?

Soak the cashews in water for some hours.

Boil de rice, depending on the variety you choose it should boil more or less time, make sure you take a look at the packaging to see exactly how many time it has to be boiling.

Meanwhile spiralize a carrot (or grate it if you don’t have spiralizer).

When the rice is about to be done, put two handful of peas in the boiling pan and wait for three minutes. Then you can strain the rice and the peas.

To make the sauce you’ll need to add the soaked cashews in a blender together with the clove of garlic and some lemon juice, you can also add some water if needed to make a creamy consistency.

Mix the sauce with the rice, the peas and add the grated carrot. Then you can sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds, some nuts of your choice and add the sliced avocado on top.

Super easy, simple, delicious, healthy and nutritious!! Enjoy.
