Rainbow Buddha Bowl for Kids

Put some pride into your next meal (see what we did there?). This Rainbow Buddha Bowl is a great way to easily get more veggies into your family’s diet! This bright, fun and nutrition-packed dinner is easy to prepare and even more fun to put together.

My goal was to come up with a kid-friendly Buddha Bowl recipe. I sat thinking about what would encourage my 9-year-old to dive into a bowl packed with veggies and grains. Vibrant colors popped into my head. I knew if it looked bright and delicious with a touch of fun, she would be onboard.

I got to thinking about what veggies I could try, and then I decided I was going for it – I was going to add all the veggies – and the rainbow theme was born. Who can say no to this colorful dinner?

I went with a combo of roasted veggies and fresh veggies. Choose what you think will go over best with your family. There are so many options in each color category once you start thinking about it. To add extra protein, top with a fried egg!

Rainbow Buddha Bowl
Prep Time: 30 minutes     Serves: 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled, diced
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1/2 small red cabbage, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups quinoa, cooked according to package directions
  • 1 cup red cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1/2 cup yellow cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 4 tablespoons yogurt ranch dressing

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 425°F.

2. Place sweet potatoes, broccoli and cabbage onto parchment-lined baking sheet. Toss with oil, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bake 15-20 minutes or
until potatoes are soft.

3. Divide cooked quinoa into four bowls. Top with roasted sweet potatoes, broccoli, cabbage, red tomatoes, yellow tomatoes and avocado. Be creative!

4. Drizzle with dressing.
