This Greek buddha bowl will bring you right to sunny Greece without having to pay for the plane ticket. It’s a hearty and fun vegetarian dish that will give you all those extra vitamins and proteins you need after that long winter… Also a really fast dish to make, done under 10 minutes and it tastes fantastic. I love those buddha bowls, they give you that filling of abundance although it’s a healthy meal.

Greek Bouddha Bowl

For this particular Greek version of Buddha bowl I’ve added a nice feta cheese to give that extra “smooth” factor to the dish, a juicy and salty kalamata olive and its sidekicks of cucumber and tomato. The dressing is a fresh garlic, extra-virgin olive oil, flat leave parsley and lime to keep it simple yet authentic. I’ve added a few kale chips to give the dish this extra crunch I like so much but you can also replace this element by some nice crunchy lettuce.

Greek Bouddha BowlAs for the filler… I’ve used a kamut couscous, which is packed with fibres and has a lower glycemic index than the normal kind. Taste Wise it’s nuttier in flavor. It could also be replaced by any filler like quinoa, orzo or Israeli couscous. For last but not the least element of the Greek buddha bowl; the chickpeas. A great proteins source which is being cultivated in Greece since 3000 B.C. Making this dish a healthy Greek Buddha bowl suitable for the lunch box or a quick dinner on weeknights. You’ll see, it’s going to become one of your favorite “fast and fabulous” weeknight dish!

So let’s get this greek sun shine!

  1. I’m a big fan of couscous, and this kind sounds healthier. This combination will have you full of energy for most of the day. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I rarely cook with couscous but I really like the nutty texture of it. I always thought quinoa is a relative of couscous (is it?) And coming back to your buddha bowl, looks super delish.

    • Couscous is an actual part of wheat and quinoa a grain of its own. Both makes great fillers and goes great with this buddha bowl.

  3. Totally LOVE greek food. Anything with feta and olives is perfect. This looks like a totally delicious dinner for any night of the week.

  4. You’ve made one of my favorite meals–so many flavors and textures. So filling and good in so many ways! Looks amazing.

  5. Oh wow – love everything about this!!!! The addition of kale chips is such a great idea – love kale chips!

  6. That looks almost too pretty to eat! I am definitely going to add this to my lunch menu (maybe without the olives though because I am not a fan) lol.

  7. I love the look and sound of this dish and ready in 10 minutes is a winner in my book. I’ve never tried kamut couscous and will definitely be looking out for it…:)

  8. My goodness, when I looked at your site and your pictures, they reminded me my Instagram (evaisco) account… this is so similar to something I would do. I love your salad! I am a salad eater myself. But recently I got into vegan soups as well. I am glad we are able to share our path with each other. Vegan recipes are a great treasure. Check our what I do to improve my health on my site. I am happy to share the story with everyone. Check my slow-simmered squash soup recipe. The best dinner for the family! Namaste.

  9. Looks super healthy and very adaptable – perfect for the spring/summer produce coming up. Thanks for sharing!

  10. There’s all of the flavors of Greece there. So healthy and fresh looking. Just right for the warmer weather coming along.
