Vegan Buddha Bowl
“This easy grain bowl has so much to love—sweet potatoes, protein-packed chickpeas, creamy avocado and homemade tahini dressing. Make the full recipe on the weekend and pack into individual serving containers for ready-to-go lunches for work all week.”
1 medium sweet potato, peeled if desired, cut into 1-inch chunks
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
½ teaspoon salt, divided
½ teaspoon ground pepper, divided
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 small clove garlic, minced
2 cups cooked quinoa
1 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
1 firm ripe avocado, diced
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
1Preheat oven to 425°F.
2Toss sweet potato with 1 tablespoon oil and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Roast, stirring once, until tender, 15 to 18 minutes.
3Meanwhile, whisk the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, tahini, water, lemon juice, garlic and the remaining ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl.
4To serve, divide quinoa among 4 bowls. Top with equal amounts of sweet potato, chickpeas and avocado. Drizzle with the tahini sauce. Sprinkle with parsley (or cilantro).
