Recipe Of The Week – Butternut And Apple Buddha Bowl

Butternut And Apple Buddha Bowl

If you love Buddha bowls, you’ve probably enjoyed trying out our recipes in the last few weeks. I just like the name of today’s recipe – butternut and apple Buddha bowl.

It’s packed with plant protein, leafy greens, root veggies and a creamy, and an apple cider dressing.



Butternut And Apple Buddha Bowl recipe


For the Buddha Bowl:
3 cups chopped butternut squash (about 1/2 large butternut squash)
3 cups chopped apples (about 2 large apples)
1 15.5 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
2 cups quinoa
1 small bunch kale, stems removed and roughly chopped
2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds (pepitas)

For the Cashew Apple Cider Dressing:

1 cup cashews, soaked for at least one hour
1 small shallot, minced (about 1 tablespoon minced)
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon honey
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt


For the Buddha Bowl:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, toss butternut squash, apples and chickpeas with 1 tablespoon olive oil, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
Transfer to a large parchment-lined baking sheet and roast for 30-35 minutes, or until squash and apples are tender and chickpeas are crispy, tossing halfway through.
Cook 2 cups quinoa according to package instructions.
Add kale to the large mixing bowl and toss with remaining olive oil and salt. Transfer to a baking sheet and spread kale out in a single layer. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the edges of the leaves are slightly browned but still mostly green.
Divide quinoa evenly between bowls. Add chickpeas, squash, apples and kale. Drizzle cashew apple cider dressing over top and sprinkle with pumpkin seeds.

For the Cashew Apple Cider Dressing:

In a high-speed blender or food processor, blend or pulse all ingredients together until smooth and creamy. Drizzle over fall harvest buddha bowls.
