The pictures, recipe, and opinions are all mine.

The first time I ate a Buddha bowl was in Austin, TX at a restaurant. I ordered it because the name seemed so intriguing to me. I have to confess though,  that I had no idea what to expect. But when I first tried it, I fell in love with Buddha bowls. All of the flavors and textures felt like an explosion of flavor and yumminess in my mouth, from that moment I became a huge fan of them.sweet potato Mexican buddha bowl

There is something about the combination of the ingredients that makes me feel nourished and happy in every bite. It is also a lifesaver dish when I have crazy days and have to put dinner on the table FAST. Buddha bowls are usually composed of grains (rice, quinoa, millet or a combination of several), a legume (beans, lentils,…), a starch (potatoes, sweet potatoes,..), cooked greens, fresh greens, and a delicious sauce. I love to finish mine with sliced avocado, fresh herbs and seeds or nuts. I love this type of recipes that you adapt to your taste or even to what you have in the fridge.

Well, I do have a secret that I have to confess, and it makes me so happy to pass it along to you. I always have frozen veggies in the freezer and especially Fire Roasted Sweet Potatoes from Cascadian Farms. The smokiness and sweetness that they achieve after being fire roasted are amazing.  And the flavors pair perfectly well with the smoky and spicy chipotle pepper in the dressing.  I called this recipe Fire Roasted Sweet Potato Mexican Buddha bowl.

The fire roasted sweet potatoes are organic, peeled, chopped and cooked by a company that focuses on growing and making the best food ever. That is why I trust them because I know they not only have a mission to bring the best food to my table, they also want to make a huge difference in the world.
