There is nothing like a nourish bowl filled with all of your favorite foods to satisfy your hunger. What is a nourish bowl, some of you may ask? A nourish bowl is simply a melting pot of greens, grains/starches, a protein, vegetables, and a dressing.

This simple nourish bowl is the perfect combination of sweet and savory goods to supply your taste buds with both ends of the food spectrum.

Ingredients:

  • One Japanese sweet potato
  • One purple sweet potato
  • One cup of chopped kale
  • One cup of cooked chickpeas
  • One lemon, juiced
  • Two scoops of unsweetened vegan yogurt (I used Kite Hill Almond-Based Yogurt)
  • One tsp. of cinnamon
  • One tbsp. of maple syrup
  • Two tsp. of tahini

How to make:

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Wash and chop the sweet potatoes into rounds.
  3. Chop the kale, removing the stalk if you prefer.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt, cinnamon, and maple syrup.
  5. Place the yogurt mixture in the refrigerator until time to assemble the bowl.
  6. Place the chopped sweet potatoes onto the pan and bake them for 20-25 minutes.
  7. Steam the kale over low heat until it is bright green and has wilted. (this will take roughly 10-20 minutes)
  8. Once the kale is ready, evenly distribute it into two bowls and massage it with lemon juice.
  9. Once the potatoes are done cooking, add them evenly to the bowls.
  10. Evenly distribute the chickpeas to the bowls.
  11. Add one scoop of the yogurt mixture to each bowl.
  12. Add one tsp. of tahini to each bowl.
  13. Enjoy!
