Buffalo Chick Bowl “Recipe”

This is so simple, it feels silly to call this a recipe. But, if you’re like me and ate your fair share of “buffalo” style chicken in your meat eating days, sometimes you need a healthier alternative to a buffalo chick’n sammie.

Funny thing is, this didn’t start with a buffalo craving. I was in the kitchen with only an avocado as a fresh ingredient, wondering what I could make myself for dinner. This is what I came up with.



  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 cup of dry  brown rice (+ 2 cups of water)
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 can garbanzo beans (or 1.5 cups cooked)
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tsp buffalo sauce (plus more to taste)
  • Black pepper and cilantro, to taste


  1. Press and mince the garlic, then sautee in oil until fragrant, but not burnt.
  2. Add rice, water, and salt. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to low heat and cover. image
  3. While rice cooks, prepare the topping: mash whole avocado with tsp of buffalo sauce. image
  4. If you have a well-stocked fridge, throw in some greens just before the rice is done. Otherwise, wait until fully cooked and add the chickpeas.image
  5. Add the spices until sufficiently flavored.
  6. Scoop into two bowls and top with avocado sauce, and additional buffalo sauce, to taste.
  7. EAT!


This makes two decent size bowls and is both delicious and simple! Perfect for a work-night dinner.
