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!
