This sweet potato buddha bowl is a satisfying and scrumptious lunch that’s easy to put together and enjoy. I eat it at least once a week and it’s always delicious!
In the colder months, I always feel like something more substantial than a salad for lunch. This sweet potato buddha bowl is the perfect solution! It has satisfying carbs like sweet potatoes and quinoa, plus it’s loaded with nutritious veggies. Top it with my perfect lemon tahini sauce for a delicious kick!
- mixed greens
- cubed sweet potato
- roasted chickpeas
- roasted pumpkin seeds
- chopped cucumber
- lemon tahini sauce
See recipe card for quantities.
Roast chickpeas & cubed sweet potato in the oven or air fryer, and cook the quinoa according to package directions.
Place a bed of cooked quinoa and mixed greens into a shallow bowl.
Layer the roasted chickpeas, roasted sweet potato, chopped cucumber and pumpkin seeds into the bowl.
Drizzle some lemon tahini sauce on top and enjoy your sweet potato buddha bowl meal!
Hint: Roast your chickpeas and sweet potato in advance, and cook the quinoa and make the dressing in advance. Store them all in separate air-tight containers for up to 5 days in the fridge to put together easy lunches throughout the week.
- Mixed greens – instead of mixed greens, use shredded red or green cabbage
- Cucumber – use your favourite, in-season chopped vegetables of choice instead of (or in addition to) the chopped cucumber
I like to use my favourite XL air fryer to air fry the sweet potato cubes and the chickpeas, but you can also use a regular oven.
Store the individual ingredients in separate air-tight containers for up to 5 days in the fridge.
