Buddha Bowls!

Buddha Bowls, those single bowl meals filled with simple, pure, and healthy food have become very popular the last few years. 
 
This week we are making Heidi Swanson-Inspired Buddha Bowls--a one bowl meal with several components (grains, beans, fresh veggies, condiments, toppings, seeds, nuts, etc.) artfully arranged to appeal. 


Heidi has several Buddha bowl-style recipes to choose from, or you can use some of her recipes as components in your own Buddha bowl

Make and post your Buddha Bowl recipe by Sunday, November 20th and link your picture and post up below.

Ingredients That Inspire--Cooking with Heidi Swanson

What ingredients inspire you in the kitchen? Is it something from your garden, locally grown fruits or veggies or an item produced where you live? Maybe it's something seasonal that only comes around once a year, a favorite herb or spice blend, a bar of chocolate brought back from a trip, or a basket of fresh eggs gifted from a neighbor? 


Whatever it is that inspires you, this week, make any Heidi Swanson recipe that includes one or more of these inspiring ingredients. 

Make and post your Ingredients That Inspire recipe by Sunday, October 23rd and link your picture and post up below.
