This is a recipe with lots of options. Here are easy swaps to customize your bowl:
  1. You can use any color of quinoa or another grain like buckwheat, millet, or rice.
  2. Use any vegetables you have on-hand. This is a great way to avoid food waste.
  3. I used kidney beans but you can use any legume. Having a grain and a legume help to make a complete protein.
  4. Add tofu if you would like your Buddha bowls to have more protein.
