Sweet potato & red pepper Buddha Bowl [GF+VEGAN]

Summer is coming and I’m so so soooo excited. Not only do I have a heap of adventures planned, but I start full time work (lol don’t laugh but I’m very excited as I’ve found something I’m passionate about) and I find the fresh summer food is always so much nicer than the winter.

This DELICIOUS Buddha bowl filled with vitamins and zingy flavours is such a good option if you’re in need a quick meal, are cooking for a vegan or coeliac, or need some veg!

This recipe serves 2 and takes 20-25 mins to make.

You’ll need:

  • 1 Sweet potato
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • drizzle of coconut oil (I use Lucy Bee)
  • 1 tsp mixed herbs

What you need to do:

  1. Start to boil the quinoa in a pan. Whilst this is cooking peel and chop the sweet potato into chunks and put into another pan alongside the chopped up broccoli.
  2. Dice the onion and red pepper and add these to a frying pan. Fry until lightly browned.
  3. Once it is all cooked, pour carefully into a bowl and shake (I found it was easier to shake than stir as the sweet potato can fall apart if you’re not careful!).
  4. Add in the lemon juice, chilli flakes, coconut oil and herbs and serve!
