I love buddha bowls because they combine many flavors, colors and nutrients in a single bowl. Every time I eat a buddha bowl I feel that I am nourishing my body, that I am doing something very good for myself.

That's why I love them so much. This time this buddha bowl has Greek flavors and is wonderful in taste and very very light since it does not contain any olive oil.

You can also make many replacements.

Tips and Substitutions

Instead of chickpeas you can use other legumes of your choice such as beans or lentils.

Use rice or pasta of your choice instead of orzo.

Cherry tomatoes are important to me if you want to keep the "Greek flavors" on your plate. You can also add cucumber.

Instead of vegan yogurt sauce you can accompany your salad with vegan tzatziki or if you are not vegans with classic tzatziki.
