Buddha bowls, nourish bowls, and Poke bowls all follow a similar theme, no cooking and minimal preparation time. Whatever you choose to call it, we recommend adding an avo for maximum flavour and nutrition! They also don’t require a recipe, just a guideline, whatever you have in your fridge goes.


  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • Handful of soaked noodles, tossed in sesame oil for flavour
  • Handful baby spinach leaves
  • Pickled ginger
  • ¼ cucumber, sliced
  • 2 radishes, sliced
  • ¼ cup blanched peas or edamame beans
  • ¼ red onion, pickled in lemon juice
  • ¼ cup red cabbage, sliced
  • Pickles or daikon (optional)
  • To serve, chilli flakes, sesame seeds and lemon wedges


  1. Halve, peel and de-pip the avocado. To make the avocado rose place the cut side of the avocado on a chopping board and slice as thinly as possible, gently holding and keeping the slices together.
  2. Once sliced fan out the avocado slices, gently coaxing the slices apart in a concertina fashion, keeping it all connected, to form a long snake shape. Starting at the stalk end roll the avocado into a rose shape.
  3. Arrange the spinach in the bottom of a bowl, and all the other ingredients in a clockwise pattern.
  4. Top the noodles with the avocado rose, and sprinkle with sesame seeds and chilli flakes, serve with wedge of lemon.
