Hearty, filling and delicious: Buddha bowl with Parma Ham recipe
A feast for the eyes as well as the tummy
What's a Buddha bowl, you ask? Simple: it's a healthy meal consisting of small portions of different foods, all served up in a... well, bowl (no surprises there) and topped with dressing. Colourful, pretty and filled with grains, vegetables and protein, these tasty bowls are a great way to ensure you're getting your five a day – and you can whip one up with next to no fuss.
This Italian-inspired Buddha bowl combines jewel-coloured pomegranate arils, blueberries, grated carrot and quinoa, all in one health-boosting serving. Topped off with a Parma Ham rosette, we mean it when we say it tastes as good as it looks.
