Between two family birthdays and a trip out of town, I feel like I’ve done nothing but eat rich, decadent foods for days on end.
I don’t just feel that way; it’s pretty much reality.
Time to get back on the healthy bandwagon!
I’ve been on a sweet potato kick.
I’ve also been on a “bowl” kick. (you know, when you can fit your meal into one, healthy bowl?)
So, this recipe looked like a perfect way to incorporate both of my current favorite things.
I added some black beans to the original recipe for protein. You’re getting lots of healthy ingredients and a lot of vitamins and nutrients with very little fat or anything else artificial!
Sweet Potato Power Bowl
1 large sweet potato, diced
4 oz Brussels sprouts, halved
4 oz cauliflower, chopped into florets
1 cup red onion, diced
1 cup grape tomatoes
1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
1 tsp red pepper
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 400° F. Toss sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and tomatoes with olive oil. Spread onto a baking sheet. Roast for 50 minutes, or until potatoes are fork tender. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and red pepper. Toss with black beans. Serve immediately.
