Remember that chickpea taco salad I promised last week? Well, it ain’t gonna happen. I had all intentions of sharing it this week but I went a little overboard when I was styling the bowls for the shoot and it turned into this chickpea taco buddha bowl instead.
What’s the difference between a buddha bowl and a salad? I’m glad you asked because I googled it for ya. According to the internets, a salad is a cold dish of various mixtures of raw or cooked veggies while a buddha bowl is a bowl packed so full that it has a rounded ‘belly’ on the top, like the belly of a buddha.
I’m not sure how I feel about the ‘salads are cold’ definition but I piled all the toppings into this bowl until they were almost spilling out. So I’m thinking this qualifies as a chickpea taco buddha bowl and not a mere salad.
