It’s ages since I last made this delicious Teriyaki Chickpea Avocado Buddha Bowl and was kind of missing it. So, I made it again this week and thought it would be a good idea to share it with you.
This is a hearty and nutritious meal full of simple ingredients with tons of flavour. Colourful veggies, protein-packed chickpeas and everyones favourite healthy fat: the avocado! This salad makes a great weekday lunch or dinner, and it will definitely satisfy vegans and meat-eaters alike!
How to make Teriyaki Sauce
I love homemade teriyaki sauce! It can’t be more simpler and there are lots of dishes you can make with this versatile sauce. And it takes less than 5 minutes to prepare.
First, combine all the ingredients into a small saucepan, starting with the wet ingredients: water and soy sauce. Then, you have to add the sugar, garlic, ginger, vinegar, and stir until well mixed. Slowly bring to a simmer on low boil for 5 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch with 1 tablespoon and whisk until dissolved and pour into the saucepan. Let the sauce cook a bit more or until glossy and slightly thickened. Turn off the heat and let the sauce cool at room temperature. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 weeks.
How to make Lemon Tahini Dressing
Another one of my favorite dressings, perfect for this Teriyaki Chickpea Avocado Buddha Bowl or any veggie salad salad you love. I adapted it from the Lemon Tahini Dressing Recipe on Food52.
Making this sauce is as simple as adding all the ingredients in a small bowl, whisking them together, and, if needed, adjusting consistency by adding more tahini or water.
