Can you get anymore #basic than a good buddha bowl?!? Answer: no.
Every time I log onto Instagram, I see countless posts of these yogi’s eating buddha bowls post yoga. I may not do yoga, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have one, right?!
Buddha bowls are perfect because they pack a ton of vitamins and nutrients into a meal, all while tasting good. For this one, I chose sweet potatoes and black beans as my main dish. Why? Well, sweet potatoes pack vitamin A, potassium, fiber, and more. They are also a great carb source that will fuel you for a long time. Black beans are one of the easiest sources of protein for a vegetarian or vegan, as they pack 7g per serving. Besides that, they’re also full of fiber, which is always important. Sweet potatoes and black beans are some of the cheapest foods you can buy in bulk as well, so this bowl will not break the bank.
I made a ton of these for a school week, and they were the perfect fuel. I cannot overstate how simple this was to make as well, so do not be fooled by the title. The hardest part of it was making it look presentable for the camera. Let’s begin!
INGREDIENTS (Serves one):
1 small sweet potato, cubed
1/2 cup drained black beans
1/4 bell pepper, diced
Handful of broccoli, steamed
