This recipe was just too easy and too good not to share. As you may know, I’m a big fan of Oh She Glows and that is exactly where this recipe came from. Although, I worked with what I had in the fridge and you can too!
This bowl packs a lot of power and will keep you full and energized through the afternoon. It is a great lunch option. This recipe also includes miso which is a great digestive aid.
This recipe makes at least 2-3 servings. Prep time is only 20 minutes and cook time is 30 minutes. It is gluten free, nut free, refined sugar free, and soy free!
1 Sweet Potato (I always use 2-3 because I love left overs and don’t like to cook often), cut into 1/2″ rounds
1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil or coconut oil
Fine grain sea salt and freshly ground pepper (I just use sea salt and regular pepper)
1 cup uncooked quinoa (any color is fine)
1 cup frozen shelled edamame, thawed
1 medium carrot (or more! I used 3)
2 green onions (I just used 1/2 sweet onion because that is what I had)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
1 Tablespoon hemp seeds
1/2 cup sprouts
Orange-Maple Miso Dressing
3 Tablespoons light miso
2 Tablespoons rice vinegar
1 Tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1 Tablespoon tahini
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1 Tablespoon water
1 teaspoon maple syrup
Place all ingredients in a mason jar and shake vigorously!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place sweet potato rounds on sheet and drizzle with olive or coconut oil. Sprinkle potatoes with salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes, flip and roast for 10 more minutes.
Meanwhile, cook quinoa following the instructions on the quinoa box/bag.
To assemble, mix everything together, top with dressing and serve! If you have leftovers, keep the dressing separate until ready to eat. Enjoy!
