Ingredients in this Buddha Bowl
So for this buddha bowl, we’re starting with a base of spinach and quinoa, checking off the raw vegetable and grains section.
Next, for the roasted vegetables I went for sweet potatoes and onions for simplicity and because they’re super inexpensive at the moment but of course you can add any of your favourite vegetables such as cauliflower, carrots, parsnips or brussel sprouts.
For protein, I chose chickpeas for this bowl because I love how crunchy they get and I find it pairs super well with the sweet potatoes and spicy tahini sauce.
The Spicy Tahini Sauce is made from a blend of tahini, garlic powder, maple syrup, salt and gochujang. I’ve also swapped the spicy element with chili bean sauce, sriacha and samabel oelek!
And of course, we need to add in some healthy fats so I always love to add in some avocado (avocado + sweet potato = love), nuts and seeds.
How to Make Sweet Potato Buddha Bowls
Buddha bowls are so incredibly easy to make AND left overs can easily be stored for another day which is why I love them so much! Here’s a run down of the process:
- Roast the vegetables. Here’s a quick guide for perfectly crispy roasted sweet potatoes. Then add in the chickpeas and onions and continue to roast.
- Cook the quinoa (or grain of choice).
- Make the sauce by mixing all the ingredients into a bowl
- Assemble the buddha bowls by adding all the prepped ingredients together in a bowl!
