Buddha Bowl

There are so many Buddha Bowls out there. We like this one from Crazy Vegan but altered it to what was in our refrigerator and our taste. For my hubby, we marinated a 1/4 pound of pork in the chickpea marinade but used the remaining ingredients. This was delicious!

Spicy Buddha Bowl loaded with Brown Rice, Maple Sriracha Chickpeas, Roasted Sweet Potato, Veggies and a creamy Turmeric Tahini Dressing. Vegan | Gluten Free
Recipe type: Vegan Meals
Serves: Serves 4
  • 2 cup Cooked Wild Rice

Sweet potatoes
  • 2 Sweet Potato, cut into large chunks
  • 2 teaspoon water
  • Salt/Pepper

Chickpea marinade
  • 1 can Organic Chickpeas, drained
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha
  • 2 teaspoons Maple Syrup
  • ½ teaspoon Paprika
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • Salt/Pepper

Lightly stirred veggies
  • 2 cup chopped onions
  • 1 cup  red bell pepper
  • 2 cup broccoli 
  • 1 cup haricot vert beans
  • 2 cup sliced mushrooms

Turmeric Tahini Dressing
  • 1/2 cup Tahini
  • 1/2 cup Warm Water
  • 2 teaspoon Maple Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha
  • Salt to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Coat sweet potato in 1 tsp oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on baking tray and pop into the oven to roast for 35 minutes, turning once halfway through the cooking time.
  2. Whilst sweet potato is cooking, prepare chickpeas.
  3. In a bowl, combine chickpeas, sriracha, maple syrup, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Mix to combine. Heat a saucepan and transfer chickpea mixture into saucepan to cook for 5-10 minutes. Make sure to keep the chickpeas moving so they don't burn. Cook until chickpeas are slightly sticky and no longer watery. Keep aside. We also sauteed the mushrooms with the chickpeas.
  4. In a clean saucepan, lightly water saute and season the veggies. Transfer to a bowl.
  5. Once sweet potato is cooked through, prepare your Buddha Bowl by placing your rice in the bottom of a bowl and then topping with the sweet potato, chickpeas, and veggies.
  6. To make dressing, whisk all ingredients together. Liberally splash on Buddha Bowl and enjoy!!!

This one from Oh How She Glows has been recommended to us as well, but we haven't tried it.
