Recipe: Vegetarian Halloumi Buddha Bowl

buddha bowl with sweet potato halloumi edamame beans avocado

Normally I would never go for something vegetarian in a restaurant but I was inspired after eating something similar at the Little Garden in Sevenoaks (read my review here). I would recommend buying a read-made packet of quinoa that you can just throw in the microwave for 1 minute. This dinner required a lot of different ingredients and preparation so it would be one less thing to worry about if you didn’t have to make the quinoa as well.

Ingredients: (serves 3)

  • 1 packet halloumi
  • 1 packet shredded beetroot
  • 2 carrots – grated
  • 2 handfuls of frozen edamame beans – defrosted
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Black pepper
  • Two packets ready-made quinoa
  • 2 avocados, halved with pip taken out


  1. Defrost the edamame beans
  2. Dice the red onion
  3. Grate the carrots
  4. Halve two avocados and cut up
  5. Preheat the oven to 200 °C.
  6. Cut the sweet potatoes up into wedges, spread in a baking tray and sprinkle some olive oil and black pepper. Put in the middle of the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes until light brown in colour.
  7. Fry the halloumi
  8. Heat the quinoa in the microwave
  9. Throw all together in the most colourful and aesthetically pleasing way possible!

One to try for your meat-free Mondays!
