Protein-rich Niçoise Buddha Bowl Recipe

Please share!

Before the trendy Buddha Bowls, came the delicious Niçoise salad created by the French, which is a salad packed with protein (tuna, anchovies and hard-boiled egg). It is delicious since it has all the flavors of the Mediterranean, including black olives, capers and tomatoes, all served on fresh lettuce leaves.

What is a Buddha Bowl and why are they insanely popular?

A Buddha bowl is visually appealing since it shows you all the fresh ingredients and usually includes seeds and grains such as quinoa and beans, aside from green leafy vegetables. They are in-demand because they are very convenient and easy to prepare.
