Gather Fresh Ingredients
Before you start making your homemade Buddha bowl, gather all of your ingredients together. This will make the cooking process much smoother and ensure that you have everything you need.
For this recipe, you’ll need the following ingredients starting with:
- Half a large sweet potato,
- large avocado,
- large carrot,
- red oinion,
- olive oil
- black pepper,
- garted garlic,
- half a lemon,
I my opinion, this dish has a awesome combination of flavours that will delight your palate. Feel free to add any additional toppings you may like, such as sesame seeds or more olive oil.
Homemade Buddha bowl
- 1 Large Bowl
- 1 chef's knife
- 1 air fryer oven
- 1 avocado Preferable large.
- 1/2 sweet potato large, chopped into cubes.
- carrot Quite large.
- 1 tbsp hummus per portion.
- 1 red onion Thinly sliced.
- 1 vine red tomato medium to large cut into slices.
- 1 tbsp Olive oil per person for drizzling.
- 3 spring onions small
- Cut the sweet potato into cubes then pop into a preheated air fryer basket and sprinkle with some olive oil. cook for required time (15 mins in this instance) you may need to take the basket out and shake it about a bit or mix it up just to make sure that
- Cook potatoes properly all the way through. If you don’t have an air fryer you can cook them in the oven, I would say around 190 – 200° for about half an hour but keep checking it will depend on the size of your cubes.
- Whilst the sweet potatoes are cooking you can prepare the dressing. First wash and then finally chop the fresh coriander and the fresh mint and add to a small bowl.
- Pour in some olive oil and mix. then add in the spring onions, the juice of half a lemon the grated garlic and the rest of the seasoning, mix and set aside for later.
- Slice the avocado into thin slices and place in a bowl then grate the carrots – I used a food processor because it’s easier, although of course you have to wash it afterwards. Add to the bowl.
- Thinly slice some red onions and layer that over the carrots add a big dollop of Hummus and then your sweet potatoes when ready. Thinly slice the tomatoes and add to the bowl.
- Now you can add your micro greens we used broccoli sprouts for this recipe but there are others available. they’re delicious and extremely nutritious – simply sprinkle them over your lunch.
- Finally, add your dressing (see below) you could sprinkle over the food or you could put it in a corner of the plate and just mix it up yourself. It’s not a very runny dressing, it’s quite thick so if you want it runner you could add more olive oil and lemon juice but I prefer it this way.
Prep your veggies
The first step in making your homemade Buddha bowl is to assemble your veggies and greens.
Wash carrot, red oinion, tomato and chop into bite-sized pieces, or the way you like it and set them aside.
If you’re using leafy greens, such as spinach or kale, wash and chop them as well.
Having your veggies and greens prepped and ready to go will save you time and make the cooking process much smoother.
