Dude.  I’ve got Buddha bowls on the brain.  Have you heard of a Buddha bowl before – sometimes called a grain bowl or harvest bowl?  I found this explanation and it pretty much sums it up.  In a nut shell, it started off as a grain bowl but several people have added lean meat, like the chicken I chose, to these vegan grain bowls called Buddha bowls.  Buddha bowls, grain bowls, harvest bowls – whatever you want to call them – they are beautiful, vegetable heavy, colorful bowls filled with whatever makes you feel balanced and happy ;)

Oh, and this Sweet Potato Buddha bowl makes me all kinds of balanced and happy.

Sweet Potato Buddha Bowl - a healthy and hearty meal that everyone will love!

Ingredients

|| Roasted Sweet Potatoes
16 oz. pre-washed cubed sweet potatoes
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
sea salt & pepper to taste
|| Sautéed Snow Peas
6 oz. pre-washed snow peas
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 heaping tablespoons pine nuts
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
|| Other
2 ripe, sliced avocados
Spinach
Lettuce
Pre-cooked cubed (or sliced) grilled chicken (I like to use the pre-cooked whole chicken at Costco)

Instructions

    Roasted Sweet Potatoes
  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. Place the cubed sweet potatoes onto a jellyroll pan.
  3. Drizzle the sweet potatoes with oil, and toss them to make sure they are coated. Spread them out in a single layer, so they brown. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes, flipping them halfway through.
  5. Sautéed Snow Peas
  6. Warm olive oil in large pan over medium high heat.
  7. Add snow peas to the warm pan. Sauté for around 4-5 minutes until the snow peas start to slightly soften.
  8. Add pine nuts and sauté for another couple of minutes. Continue to sauté the snow peas to ensure the pine nuts don't burn.
  9. Sprinkle a dash of sea salt on the snow peas.
  10. Layer It Up
  11. Start with the base - create a layer of greens using your spinach and lettuce.
  12. Add the Sautéed Snow Peas & Pine Nuts.
  13. Add the Roasted Sweet Potatoes.
  14. Add the pre-cooked cubed/sliced grilled chicken.
  15. Add the sliced avocado.
  16. Enjoy your yummy Buddha bowl!
