Have you tried roasted sweet potatoes with peach salsa before? This nourishing bowl is perfect for spring and summer. The mixture of sweet and spicy peach salsa compliments the sweet potatoes very well.
For some added protein and fiber pair the main ingredients with lentils, quinoa, or chickpeas. In the video below I pair it with falafels, fresh spinach, and pumpkin seeds. The great thing about a Buddha bowl is that you can add whatever you like. Always try to include a protein, a good carb, and healthy fat for a wholesome meal.
Start with a base of protein or greens (e.g. quinoa, lentils, beans or fresh spinach). Add ingredients in sections around the bowl or mix everything together. Depending on the ingredients, cut or chop veggies thinly to fit inside the bowl. Try to add a variety of different textures. Pro-tip: Add something soft (e.g. avocado), something with texture (e.g. quinoa), crunchy (e.g. pumpkin seeds), or maybe even something crispy (e.g. radishes, carrots).
