Sweet Potato and Chickpea Buddha Bowl



A plant-filled bowl of deliciousness! Roasted broccolini and purple sweet potato with fragrant and crunchy chickpeas. This recipe is perfect for your #meatlessmonday (like I had today).

I'm a big fan of buddha bowls at the moment, they are so versatile and easy to prepare. Pick a protein source, 3-4 of your favourite veggies, some spices and you're done!!

They are also a very cheap dinner option (depending on which protein source you pick), but this recipe in particular only costs $4 per serve!



Serves 4, GF


Ingredients:

1 large sweet potato

2 bunches broccolini

4 cups of kale, stems removed and roughly chopped
