The beauty about grain bowls is that there are endless possibilities!

There are a few different types of bowls: a Buddha bowl is generally vegetarian and usually include whole grains such as brown rice and quinoa, plant-based proteins such as chickpeas or tofu, and fresh vegetables. Each ingredient is arranged in an arty way creating a colourful bowl. Nourish bowls are generally the non-vegetarian version and to poké bowls are the Hawaiian raw fish dish.

The concept of these beautiful, colourful bowls have appeared across social media and the internet for the last few years. Whether you like yours full with meat, seafood or veggies, why not use fresh spring produce to make your own creation today! Remember there’s no right or wrong: any ingredient can be used in your bowl, it’s a great way to use up leftovers.

Tasty tips for making your bowl healthy and delicious

  • Fill half your bowl with non-starchy veggies and/or fruit, a quarter with protein and the other quarter with whole grains, such as quinoa, brown rice, wholemeal pasta or starchy vegetables.
  • Add flavour with fresh herbs, spices, pickled vegetables and lemon or lime juice.
  • Think about combining textures: crunchy, creamy, roasted, wet and dry.
