here's what you'll need

cauliflower rice avocados spinach garlic chickpeas olive oil micro greens lime black pepper and cilantro

Start by heating a skillet and adding olive oil. Add cauliflower rice and a pinch of salt, cooking it until soft and tender, which usually takes about 5 minutes.

While the rice is cooking, drain and wash the chickpeas, then add them to the skillet, cooking them for a few  minutes until they turn golden and crispy.

Once done, remove the chickpeas from the skillet and add in the spinach and minced garlic. Stir everything together, letting the spinach wilt and infuse with the garlic flavor.

Swap out your skillet for a food processor and combine the avocado, lime juice, jalapeño, water, salt, black pepper, and cilantro. Blend everything until you achieve a smooth and creamy texture.

Now, find a beautiful bowl to assemble your nourishing Buddha bowl. Place the cauliflower rice at the base of the bowl and arrange the chickpeas, spinach, and guacamole on the side. Finally, add a sprinkle of fresh micro greens for an extra burst of flavor and visual appeal.
