Grilled Buddha bowl

The last few weeks I have really been craving heaps of healthy veggies and whilst I love roast veggies, they do take a long time to cook.

Today I bought a grill pan!
Which inspired me to make this dish.  There a lots of fresh flavours in this bowl. A combination of cooked and raw and a creamy/garlic/chilli green sauce to top it all off.

It looks amazing and tastes even better.
