Crunchy Asparagus and Snow-Pea Quinoa Bowl with Arugula Pesto

This recipe pretty much sums up the idea of a Buddha bowl. And if you’re asking “Why is it called a Buddha bowl?” Well, I honestly have no idea, but I guess we can Google that later … but after we make this bowl.

It is simple—steam a whole bunch of veggies until crispy, not cooked. Then, smother them in a peppery arugula pesto. And that, my friend, is how you use up all your leftover veggies and pesto, and turn them into a Buddha bowl. If you’re serving this to a meat lover, go heavy on the pesto and nutty quinoa, bulking up the salad into one incredibly delightful meal.
