Looking for a quick-n-easy flavorful meal tonight? How about a Spicy Millet Salad Bowl that is loaded with flavor and bursting with nutrients – a complete meal in itself !!
Take a break from the usual fasting recipes and dive your forks into this spicy millet salad bowl that is super nutritious and satisfying!! Wondering what’s so good about this bowl? It’s a healthy, gluten-free bowl packed with whole grains, protein and veggies.
Since it’s a Navratri recipe, I have created a marvelous mix of all the ingredients that I normally eat on a fasting day. My Buddha bowl is packed with boiled and seasoned barnyard millets, chopped avocadoes, chopped cucumber, tapioca – potato falafels, grilled paneer (Indian cottage cheese), pomegranate and topped with a spicy green chutney (dressing).
There are no set rules on how to make a Buddha Bowl. It’s simple – toss in your favorite grains (millet, quinoa) + protein (paneer or tofu) + veggies or fruits of your choice and there you have it – a fiber rich power bowl. Best part of this recipe – tailor it to suit your taste buds. If not fasting, than the possibilities are endless! Below are some of the ideas –
Grains – rice, brown rice, couscous.
Protein – tofu, beans and lentils.
Any veggies or fruits.
