  1. Marinate the Shrimp in the Chilli powder, lime juice and minced garlic and allow to marinate for 30 mins

  3. Cook the Quinoa according to the package instructions in the stock
  4. Boil the corn and leave aside to cool
  5. Prepare the Pico by combining the Cherry Tomatoes, Onion, Chilli, Lime juice and Coriander and add salt to taste
  6. Prepare the dressing by smooshing the cubed Avocado and mixing it with the Ranch dressing and the Coriander
  7. It’s now time to assemble the Buddha Bowl
  8. Start with some Quinoa, add some corn, Pico de Gallo, some canned pinto beans, a ½ boiled egg, ½ a sliced avocado, a lime wedge, add some of the shrimp, some coriander for garnish, and finally some of that avocado cream. A little hit of pepper and your Mexican Buddha bowl is ready to eat!
