We love Buddha bowls. If you are looking for a quick and healthy recipe for your dinner, here it is. A delicious amazing sweet potato buddha bowl. I am always flashed, actually there is no right or wrong recipe for buddha bowls. You just have to keep in mind; make it healthy and fun. Actually, it is just an overstuffed bowl. 🙂
Sometimes we make them just out of veggies and grains. But this time, we’ve added grilled chicken and instead of grains, mashed sweet potatoes, which gave such a nice twist to this bowl. In the mash sweet potatoes you can add few drops of sesame oil or pumpkin oil, just to spice it up a little bit. 🙂
This meal is ready in 20-30 minutes and you can always make it out of almost any leftovers from fridge.
How to make a sweet potato buddha bowl
You probably already saw some of our other buddha bowl, which to be honest, is almost the same, but also so different. There is no left or right guys. 🙂 There are endless ways to put together a Buddha bowl. I always go for color, texture and protein. The toppings on this amazing sweet potato buddha bowl are mashed sweet potatoes, grilled chicken, avocado, cherry tomatoes, crumbled feta cheese and some green leaves.
Most of the traditional Buddha bowls are with tahini sauce dressing. We usually have our BeastFeast Pesto in the fridge, we played with that and drizzled the bowl with some fresh basil pesto. But always remember, there are really no limits. You can use any type of grain for the base. Other great options are barley, bulgur wheat, farro or brown rice. If you consider this bowl as a low carb option, just add green leaves.
