Looking for a healthy, yet tasty dish that’s simple to put together? Look no further. Our Mediterranean Buddha Bowl is chock-full of flavor and nutrition.
Here’s a recipe that I absolutely love, and I hope you will too! Mediterranean food is the best–both delicious and incredibly healthy. The combination of flavors in this Mediterranean Buddha bowl really makes this dish a winner. I love pesto too, so that doesn’t hurt either.

The chickpeas in our easy recipe provide plenty of protein, and all of those yummy zoodles (zucchini noodles) and tomatoes add lots of vitamin A and C to support your heart, vision, immune system, and more.
If you want to make this bowl vegan, just eliminate the feta cheese, or use a non-dairy cheese substitute. We also have two pesto recipes you can try, with and without dairy, if you aren’t buying store-bought.
