Indian-Style Grainless Buddha Bowl

Indian-Style Grainless Buddha Bowl

Buddha bowls are known for three main types of ingredients—grain, green, and bean—and a tasty sauce (like coconut curry). This version makes this dish even healthier by subbing the grain with riced cauliflower, so this meal is low in carbs, high in fiber and potassium, and super tasty! You can even swap out different vegetables and sauces based on your favorite cuisines
