Vegan Sweet Potato Buddha Bowl

This recipe is very flexible, in that you can swap as many veggies in and out with a solid rice base. So filling, and so good! Here is my version, with a delicious spicy peanut sauce from kitchn.

With a variety of veggies, I used sweet potato, bell peppers, and broccoli. Next time, I am going to throw in zucchini and onion!

Ingredients:

  • 1 bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 sweet potatoes, diced
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp paprika
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • spicy peanut sauce

Instructions:

  1. To get started you’ll set your oven to 400 degrees, line a baking sheet with tinfoil, placing the sweet potatoes, bell pepper, and broccoli side be side (don’t mix!). Drizzle the olive oil, and top with your spices.
  2. Pop this baby in the oven and set the timer to 12 minutes. Pull it out and remove the broccoli, set aside, put the rest in the oven for another 10-15 minutes depending on how your sweet potatoes are doing.
  3. You’ll remove the rest of the veggies from the oven and start putting together your bowl! I start with a base of brown rice, throw on the veggies and top with a drizzle of the spicy peanut butter sauce, but you can do it in any order. I like to also drizzle with sriracha because I’m a spice-aholic.
