With whole grains, delicious vegetables, and hearty sources of protein, a veggie bowl (also referred to as Buddha bowl) is a popular choice for vegans and non-vegans alike. Renowned for its balanced, but complex flavors, the possible combinations for these bowls are endless. You can have a raw bowl packed with veggies, or maybe something grilled is more of your style. Either way, we have something for everyone. We went through the Food Monster App and found some yummy, but satisfying bowls for you. Lunch will never be boring ever again.

These Tempeh and Spelt Bowls are all things seasonal: roasted root vegetables, earthy grains, maple dressing, and tempeh infused with apple cider and Dijon mustard. Using cider as a marinade is both a seasonal touch and a great way to add sweetness to the tempeh without making it overly syrupy. As for the root vegetables, use a mixture of whichever types you like: parsnips, carrots, beets, rutabagas, onion, sweet potatoes, or celery root. Winter squashes, such as butternut or kabocha, also work well here.
