Quinoa and Sweet Potato Vegan Buddha Bowl Recipe

35 minutes prep and cook time, makes two servings


  • ½ cup rinsed quinoa
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 sweet potato
  • ½ cup vegetable broth
  • ½ cup sautéed mushrooms
  • 2 radishes, sliced
  • ½ cup chickpeas
  • Handful spinach or kale (optional)
  • Scoop of guacamole (make it yourself from my recipe here!)
  • 1 tbsp. avocado oil
  • 1 tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Pepper (to taste)
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. sesame seeds
  • ¼ tsp. thyme
  • A few dashes of coconut aminos (optional)




Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Peel and cut the sweet potato into bite-sized pieces, and toss into a bowl. Then add the chickpeas, oil and spices. Mix well, and then place onto a cookie sheet and cook for 30 minutes.

Take your rinsed quinoa and put it in a pot or on the stove. Set the heat to medium-high and sauté for about two minutes. Then add ½ cup of vegetable broth and ½ cup of water. Bring to a boil.

Next, lower heat to medium-low or low (depending on your stovetop) to bring to a simmer and cover. Let sit for 15 minutes.

Make your guacamole now (recipe here).

Once the quinoa is finished cooking, add a dash of salt and pepper and place it in a bowl. Sautée the mushrooms and add them to it as well.

When the sweet potatoes are done, take them out of the oven and place the desired amount into the quinoa bowl. Add sliced radishes, spinach or kale (if you’re including leafy greens) along with the sesame seeds and guacamole on top.

Enjoy your vegan Buddha bowl with the salty, flavorful addition of a few dashes of coconut aminos! It is entirely optional, but so yummy! The saltiness melds the coolness of the avocado and the warmth of the quinoa together.
