If you’ve been following us for awhile, you know that we LOVE all things easy, healthy, and meat-free. When we find a recipe that fits all three, and is vegan to boot, we can’t help but love it.

That’s why we are bringing you this Smoked Tofu and Hummus Buddha Bowl.

It starts with a base of turmeric rice, topped with lamb’s lettuce, smoked tofu and a hummus dressing. The perfect burst of flavor for your lunch break.

The Magic of Turmeric

If you’re just here for a quick, vegan lunch recipe, then you might be tempted to skip the turmeric in the recipe. I think you should keep it in. Obviously, it’s beautiful, and tasty, but what you might not know is that it’s widely praised for its health benefits.

The most common health benefit associated with turmeric is anti-inflammation, which comes from the curcumin in the turmeric. It has also been credited with preventing heart disease, diabetes, alzheimers, and arthritis, as well as clearing up your skin. However, these benefits are a little less scientifically proven.

Either way, turmeric rice is the perfect, colourful base for this buddha bowl and the health benefits are a nice bonus.

I'm always on the lookout for these damn smart recipes. You know, those that only take a few minutes to put together and taste delicious. Vegetarian Cooking at home is a way to take back control over what I eat. I don't like what many companies do to animals and the environment with their products.
