burritos bowl

This colourful Buddha bowl essentially takes the best elements of a chilli burrito and turns them into a fantastic salad. This simple mix of vegetables is then spiced up with a hot Sriracha sauce. Despite their simplicity, Buddha bowls pack a lot of goodness and offer a great way to get a variety of vegetables into your diet.
