Vegetarian Buddha Bowl

This is a mix between a Poké and a Buddha bowl, mainly due to the fact that this is vegetarian and doesnt have any fish in it. I also think that Poké bowls don’t have potato cubes.

In all honesty, we make these bowls multiple times a week and they are always a little bit different because we change out the vegetables depending on what is left in the fridge.

We always top ours with Kewpii Mayonaise, which is a japanese Mayonaise (regular Mayonaise works perfeclty fine as well) and some Sriracha hot sauce. It might seem like a strange combination but it’s really great and I highly recommend you try it.
