I am far from a master chef, but I found a dish that I couldn't help but brag about all over social media. I took pictures of it, have made it four times since last weekend, and I think you absolutely must try the delicious Sweet Potato Chickpea Buddha Bowl I found from Minimalist Baker.
So let's start with the basics: What's a Buddha Bowl?
A Buddha Bowl is a giant bowl of plant-based goodness, guaranteed to leave you with a Buddha belly, because you'll want to eat every single morsel in your bowl. And the best part? It's so healthy you will not feel heavy or gross afterwards, you'll feel like you just drank a glass of sunshine, while riding a unicorn over a rainbow.
Yup, it's that good.
It's no wonder you're left feeling so magnificent, the ingredients include sweet potato (the Vitamin A antioxidant powerhouse), kale (the superfood of all superfoods) and chickpeas (rich in fiber and protein).
The fun thing about Buddha Bowls is you can pretty much roast any vegetable you feel like. I've gone rogue and roasted these additions as well:
And seriously, this recipe shall come with a warning: the maple-tahini sauce is going to make you question every sauce you've ever consumed. It made my eyes roll to the back of my head, and I pretty much want it on everything I eat! Three simple ingredients, all natural and ridiculously yummy. Consider yourself warned.
Also, this is SO easy to make. While the veggies are roasting, you toast up the chickpeas and put together the 3 ingredient maple-tahini sauce and you're good to go.
My husband said this is the best thing I've ever made. It was too good not to share!
