Spicy mango sauce

  • 1 large ripe mango (about 1 cup chopped) 
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tsp sambal oelek 
  • 1/4 tsp salt 


  • 1 cup sushi rice, cooked (can sub any rice) 
  • 1 cup kale, shredded
  • 1/2 cup carrots, grated
  • 1/2 cup red cabbage, shredded 
  • 1 cup edamame, steamed
  • 1 mango, cut into cubes
  • 1 avocado, cut into cubes 
  • sesame seeds to top 


  1. Make the sauce: Add all the sauce ingredients to a small blender or food processor and puree until combined. Taste and adjust seasoning to taste if needed
  2. Assemble the bowls: To assemble the bowls, place some rice at the bottom of your bowl, then top with various topping ingredients. Drizzle the spicy mango sauce on top and enjoy! 


If your mango isn’t that ripe or sweet, you may want to add a touch of maple syrup or agave to the Buddha bowl sauce. 

Store ingredients in separate containers in the fridge and assemble bowls as needed.
