Components of the bowl
  • Hibiscus-infused fonio- an ancient West African gain, fonio, infused with a long-used African flower, hibiscus, that is packed with vitamin C and antioxidants.
  • Egusi scramble- our classic recipe made from ground melon seeds. Egusi seeds are a good source of protein, calcium, iron, zinc and are cholesterol free!
  • Moringa fava bean cakes- a delicious, protein rich bean cake made with fava beans, common north-African ingredient and infused with moinga, a nutritious leaf with tons of nutrients to lower blood pressure, support your immune system, promote healthy skin among other benefits.
  • Sautéed spinach- iron and protein-rich greens for added nutrients and fibre
  • North-African-inspired salad- a delicious salad made with core salad ingredients that are present in may North African recipes- olive oil, cucumber, tomato, red onion, parsley, lemon and garlic
  • Groundnut dressing- whats a buddha bowl without a saucy dressing? This sauce is made from peanuts at the base and when you try it, trust us, you will want to drizzle it on everything! The perfect sauce to bind the flavours in the bowl together!
  • Toasted melon seeds- back with the egusi seeds again but this time in its whole seed format! The seeds are toasted to add a bit of crunch to the bowl.
