Goodness bowl

goodness-bowl

A “bowl or buddha bowl” is a current food trend, which basically means serving different healthy food components in a pretty bowl.
This trend has its origin in the Asian cuisine and a long tradition. Buddhistic monks who mainly follow a vegetarian diet enjoy their meals this way.
I like preparing and presenting my food like this too, just because it looks so pretty and can be varied as per your liking. Mainly healthy and nutritious ingredients are used.
I`m calling this pretty bowl “goodness bowl” because it`s full of good foods. I also thought to have a little fun with my sweet potatoes and beetroot. 🙂 So I brought out my cookie cutters and made some pretty shapes. So much nicer than just boring cubes. The result tasted great and my daughter simply loved it.
