Helpful Equipment


Bowl Ingredients

  • 1 Sweet Potato (peeled and cubed)
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp. Smoked Paprika
  • ½ tsp. Garlic Powder
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • ½ tsp. Black Pepper
  • 1 Cup Quinoa
  • 2 Cups Water
  • 12 oz. Black Beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 Avocado (diced)
  • 2 Sprigs Fresh Cilantro (chopped)

Tahini Dressing

  • ¼ Cup Tahini
  • ¼ Cup Water
  • 2 Tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. Maple Syrup
  • ½ tsp. Garlic Powder
  • ½ tsp. Salt


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a bowl, toss the cubed sweet potato with olive oil, smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Spread the sweet potato out in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Roast the sweet potato for 25-30 minutes or until tender and lightly browned, stirring halfway through.
  • In a medium saucepan, bring the quinoa and water to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the quinoa is tender and the water is absorbed.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the tahini, water, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, garlic powder, salt, and pepper until smooth.
  • To assemble the Buddha bowls, divide the quinoa, black beans, roasted sweet potato, and avocado among four bowls. Drizzle the tahini dressing over each bowl.
  • Garnish with fresh cilantro, if desired, and serve.
