Earlier this week we visited Ikea to buy a shelf and some baby supplies. At the end of our visit, I wanted to investigate whether they had any vegetarian food, and sure enough, they sell their veggie dogs and vegetarian meatballs in the freezer section of the market. I picked some of both up (along with their $1.25 dark chocolate bars).
Later in the week, this recipe came together in a funny way. As I stared at what was in my pantry, I got to thinking- I bet I could make a bowl with everything we have. I just needed to find a sauce, and since I had never tried buddha bowl sauce, I decided to give it a try. However, with the Ikea dogs and a sudden craving for sauerkraut, this turned into a rather Scandinavian themed buddha bowl- yet the flavors all worked out well. Surprise Suprise.
So I thought I would share it with you!
The best thing about bowls is they are flexible. Don't have quinoa? Use brown rice! Don't have veggie sausage? Use tofu! Don't have spinach? Use literally any other veggies.
This doesn't have to be Scandinavian at all? It can be Mexican, Asian, or Indian themed! Play with what you've got.
Begin by roasting sweet potato rounds on a baking sheet at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes.
Add 1 cup of quinoa to 4 cups of boiling water. Can add some bouillon or broth base for flavoring.
Cook veggie sausages according to package directions.
Saute garlic, spinach, and mushrooms.
Make buddha bowl sauce, or use pre-made sauce such as peri-peri.
