Buddha Bowl Ingredients

  • 4 cups butternut squash cubes
  • 1 large red onion sliced into wedges/chunks
  • 15 oz canned chickpeas drained & rinsed (pat dry with paper towels)
  • 2 cups brussels sprouts halved
  • drizzle of oil

  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 lime juiced
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp ground ginger

For Serving

  • 4 cups cooked brown rice I used frozen
  • 2 avocados sliced (½ per meal)


  • Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
  • Drain and rinse chickpeas, then pat dry with paper towels.
  • Add butternut squash, onion, chickpeas and brussels sprouts onto sheet pan(s). Toss with oil, salt & pepper. Roast for 30-40 minutes.
