This Sweet Potato, Squash and Kale Buddha Bowl is a delicious way to enjoy roasted fall root vegetables – just add some cilantro-tahini dressing and crispy chili-lime chickpeas and you’re set!
This Sweet Potato, Squash and Kale Buddha Bowl is a delicious way to get all your fall veggies in one bowl. I mean, I don’t know about you but I am OBSESSED with root vegetables. Once fall rolls around each year, I can’t get enough roasted beets, carrots, squash and brussels sprouts.
Maybe there’s something about the taste of an irresistibly sweet roasted root vegetable scramble, or maybe it’s just the veggie fiend in me.
Either way, you’re gonna fall in love with this bowl.
And yes, it’s pretty much perfect for any and all kinds of food restrictions and diets. This thing is vegan, gluten-free, high-fibre, low-calorie, filled with lots of good fats…
Lots of squash.
I almost never enjoy squash at any other time of year other than fall. I love ’em stuffed, roasted, as a ravioli filling, pureed in soups, pasta sauces and infused into other dishes…It’s such a versatile vegetable and adds such a lovely, earthy flavour that just reminds me of crunchy, colourful leaves and plaid and cozy cardigans.
Oh fall food, how I love you.
So, it’s only natural that for the billionth time this year I included my fave fall veg in this recipe.
I must confess that this Kale Buddha Bowl is kind of a rip off of a really popular kale and quinoa bowl I posted last year, using the same tahini-lemon-cilantro dressing. This with some warm, almost-crispy kale and all these root vegetables is just absolute heaven.
Add a little sliced avocado and some crispy chili-lime chickpeas and you’re pretty much all set.
Okay, we might be forgetting the red wine here.
Now this is healthy fall comfort food for your next Netflix and chill.
