I have long been a proponent of the buddha bowl! I love everything all smashed together in one vessel, married together by a gorgeous sauce. Veggies, greens, grains, beans… YUM.

I’ve remade this sauce almost EVERYDAY since. I can’t get enough of it. My Omni Boyfriend is in love with it. I’m obsessed. I’ve made a few tweaks and I wanted to share my version below.
Dragon Sauce/ Incredible sauce/Karma Sauce/ Liquid Joy (I’m making all this up)
- ¼ cup nutritional yeast
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- the juice of half a lemon
- 2 tbsp tahini
- 3-5 tbsp water
- 2 tbsp liquid aminos
- 1 garlic clove, minced or 1/2 tsp garlic powder or BEST 3 cloves of roasted garlic.
Mix it all together. I prefer it blended up so the consistency is smooth.
