Jane’s Buddha Bowl
Jane Day is co-author with Dr. John Day of "The Longevity Plan," documenting their journey to China's Longevity Village. "Preparing food for guests has always been a stressful thing - feeling inadequate and fearing that the dishes wouldn't turn out. Posting recipes has been an exercise in the ultimate confrontation of this fear. Gratefully, the joy in figuring out how to make favorite dishes with healthier ingredients now exceeds the fear and I take courage in the idea that maybe I can help someone else do the same."
Go ahead and get creative with this one! Sauté whatever veggies you have with this flavorful blend of rice vinegar, liquid aminos, sesame oil, turmeric, harissa and nutritional yeast. Serve your veggies over quinoa mixed with hummus and lime. Sprinkle with avocado and toasted pumpkin seeds or favorite nut or seed. Yum! Yum! Yum!
- 2 yellow onions sliced
- 2 cups cauliflower 1/2-1 inch pieces
- 2 cups purple cabbage shredded
- 1 red pepper sliced
- 1 zucchini cubed 1/2-1 inch
- tofu cubed 1/2-1 inch
- 2 tablespoons Sesame oil
- rice vinegar generous sprinkle to taste
- liquid aminos generous sprinkle to taste (slowly, as it will quickly become salty)
- 1 tablespoon turmeric
- 1 tablespoon Harissa moroccan spice blend if you have some, more if desired
- 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast adjust to taste
- 6 cups cooked quinoa
- 3/4 cup roasted red pepper hummus
- 6 teaspoons lime juice
- Avocado sliced or diced, sprinkled on top
- toasted pumpkin seeds, slivered almonds or sesame seeds or favorite nuts or seeds, sprinkled on top
- 1. Mix cooked quinoa, hummus and lime. Set aside. 2. Sautee onions in sesame oil until soft. Add other veggies, vinegar, aminos and spices, stir and cook until just softened. Mix in nutritional yeast. 3. Put 1 cup quinoa mixture in bowl. 4. Top generously with veggie mix. 5. Top with avocado and seeds or nuts. 6. Serve.
- To cook quinoa, first make sure your quinoa is rinsed. Then cook 1 cup of quinoa to 2 cups of water on the stove for about 15-20 minutes until water is absorbed, stirring occasionally, then fluff with a fork and let sit for a few minutes.

Where can I find the liquid aminos? I see they are used in most of your recipes. I have ordered your book today. People’s Pharmacy was awesome today with you all.
Yes, we love “liquid aminos.” We buy ours through Trader Joes. If you don’t have a Trader Joes store near you, you can also buy them online through Amazon. Here is a link to see it on Amazon:
Hope this helps!
Dr. Day and Mrs. Day,
After watching the clip of your trip to China and all those seniors who were over 100 I was very excited about their way of life and nutrition. I read your article about NMN but think I would stick to the foods that will create the same formula in my body. Next week I plan on purchasing your book and look forward to reading it. When did you learn how to speak Chinese? That is not an easy language to learn. This weekend I am going to try the Buddha Bowl and am looking forward to serving it to my family. I love your posts each week. They give me such an uplift. You two are the best.
