Sweet Potato Bowl

Sweet Potato Bowl

This Sweet Potato Bowl is a hearty and healthy meal. A perfect balance of sweet, salty, spicy, and tangy.

 

I love bowl meals. My rule of thumb is something hearty, something green, some sort of base, and a sauce. And usually, I add on avocado because I love avocado. The components linked in the recipe work wonderfully together, but in case you want to get creative, here are some more ideas:

Techniques for a perfect Sweet Potato Bowl

 

  • Homemade sauce optional. Disclaimer, I love this sauce and think it is well worth the little extra effort. But, sometimes even a little extra effort is more effort than I have left in the tank. If you don’t have homemade sauce effort in your tank, bottled hot sauce is fine. Sriracha or guajillo both taste great on this. 
  • Bowls are an amazing palette for creativity. I love the recipes included together, but feel free to swap out what sounds great to you. 
  • If you stick to the components in the recipe, cook them in the order listed. Everything should come together right around the same time.
