Chipotle Sweet Potato Buddha Bowl

Chipotle Sweet Potato Buddha Bowl

Monday detox coming in hot. I did nothing but lay on my couch, binge watch Mindhunter (that came out Friday… finally)… I loved it. No surprise there, it’s right up my alley with true crime, psychology and a sort of Law & Order feel to it. Chinese take-out was basically all I ate all weekend. Then it ended with a Sunday night dinner of Haluski (find basic recipe here). A polish dish of egg noodles, sauteed cabbage and onions, and we add polish sausage. It’s basically just a ton of butter goodness. Needless to say, I am in need of a detox, and this chipotle sweet potato Buddha bowl will do the trick.

 I put chipotle tofu in the center of this buddha bowl as my “meat”… trying to keep it somewhat vegetarian for a detox. You can make this same bowl with chicken or steak or whatever you like. I would just suggest seasoning it with chipotle. You can also add your favorite veggies, I used this image from The Good Hearted Woman to create my first buddha bowl.

These bowls are similar to salads, but they are not exactly salads, which I like. Sometimes salads can get just too blah and you need to switch it up. Below is the recipe!
