Spicy Buddha Bowl

This just might be one of the best things I’ve ever eaten! I’m already looking forward to my leftovers for lunch tomorrow. My favorite part was the spicy chickpeas, tasty tahini dressing, and (of course) avocado. I found this recipe on Pinterest which took me to My Wife Makes. I’m happy to have stumbled across this vegan food blog because there’s so many deliciously colorful recipes that I can’t wait to try out -> you should go check it out too!


Spicy Buddha Bowl


  • 1 cup Cooked Brown Rice
  • 1 Sweet Potato, cut into large chunks
  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil
  • Salt/Pepper
  • Salt/Pepper
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Paprika
  • 2 teaspoons Maple Syrup
  • 1½ tablespoons Sriracha
  • 1 can Organic Chickpeas, drained
  • 1 cup chopped Red Cabbage
  • 1 cup Baby Spinach
  • 1 Avocado, sliced

Turmeric Tahini Dressing:

  • 4 Tablespoons Tahini
  • 4 Tablespoons Warm Water
  • 1 teaspoon Maple Syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • ½ teaspoon Turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon Sriracha
  • Salt to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat sweet potato in 1 tsp oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on baking tray and pop into the oven to roast for 35 minutes, turning once halfway through the cooking time.
  2. Whilst sweet potato is cooking, prepare chickpeas.
  3. In a bowl, combine chickpeas, sriracha, maple syrup, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Mix to combine. Heat a saucepan and transfer chickpea mixture into saucepan to cook for 5-10 minutes. Make sure to keep the chickpeas moving so they don’t burn. Cook until chickpeas are slightly sticky and no longer watery. Keep aside.
  4. In a clean saucepan, wilt spinach slightly and season. Transfer to a bowl and repeat the wilting and seasoning process with the cabbage.
  5. Once sweet potato is cooked through, prepare your Buddha Bowl by placing your rice in the bottom of a bowl and then topping with the sweet potato, chickpeas, spinach, red cabbage and avocado.
  6. To make dressing, whisk all ingredients together. Liberally splash on Buddha Bowl and enjoy!

You won’t be disappointed!!!
