Miso sweet potato buddha bowl

Miso sweet potato buddha bowl

Prep time; 15 minutes

Cook time; 30 minutes

Total time; 45 minutes 

Serves; 2 


For the Miso Sweet Potato; 

1 large sweet potato 

1/4 cup miso 

2 tbsp sesame oil 

2 tbsp sweet syrup (maple/agave)

1 tbsp tamari or (coconut aminos/soy-sauce) 

1 tsp rice wine vinegar


Pre-heat oven to 180 degreesC.

Chop up the sweet potato into cubes. To bake without oil, steam or boil the sweet potato first for 10 minutes and then place on a baking tray over parchment paper with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Bake for about 15 more minutes until sweet potato is tender. 

Whilst the sweet potato is baking, mix all the sauce ingredients together in a bowl.

Pour the sauce over the sweet potato in the baking tray, mix together to make sure all the potato is covered in the sauce. Place back into the oven for about 5-10 minutes. 

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus; 

1 can chickpeas 

1/2 red bell pepper

2 tbsp tahini

1 1/2 tsp cumin powder

1/2 tsp coriander powder

1 tsp smoked paprika 

1/4 tsp chilli flakes 

1 small garlic clove

1 tsp sea salt

Juice of 1 lemon

2 tbsp cold water (if needed)

Pinch black pepper 


Place all hummus ingredients into the food processor or high speed blender, except the water, and pulse until smooth, adding water if needed. Taste test to see if you want to add more salt for saltiness, chill for heat, or lemon juice for acidity. 

For the rest of the bowl; 





for the Quinoa; Measure out 1 cup quinoa, give it a rinse and then place in a pot with 2 cups of salted boiling water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 15 minutes. Turn heat off and put the lid on for 10 minutes for delicious fluffy quinoa. 

For the greens; You can really use any kind of green vegetables here. Steam, Sauté, roast or simply eat raw. For mine, I steamed the broccolini and peas for around 5-8 minutes. 

Once you have all the parts ready you can start assembling your bowl. Begin filling 1/4 of your bowl with quinoa, scoop out a generous serving of the miso sweet potato, a large dollop of Hummus and then your greens. 

Top with some fresh chilli, green onions and toasted sesame seeds and enjoy your protein packed, nutrient dense bowl of goodness!!
