Short History: According to Dan Zigmond, a Zen priest and the author of Buddha’s Diet, the name Buddha Bowl has a very literal origin! “Buddha woke up before dawn every morning and carried his bowl through the roads or paths wherever he was staying. Local people would place food in the bowl as a donation, and at the end he would eat whatever he had been given. That was the original Buddha Bowl: a big bowl of whatever food villagers had available and could afford to share.” Another reason for the name might be because of the shape of bowl resembling Buddha’s round belly. Another is just because Buddhists are often vegan, and this is a vegan dish. Whatever the actual reason for the name, this version from The Vegan Taste will provide you with B vitamins, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, and more.
