Enlightened Miso Power Bowl

Serves: 2

Ingredients: 

  • 1 sweet potato, cut into 1⁄2-inch rounds
  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoons olive oil or coconut oil, melted
  • Fine-grain sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame, thawed
  • 1 medium carrot, julienned
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1⁄4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds, optional
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds, optional
  • 1⁄2 cup sprouts, optional
  • Orange-Maple Miso Dressing (recipe below)

Instructions: 

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the sweet potato rounds on the prepared baking sheet and drizzle them with the oil, rubbing it on both sides to coat. Sprinkle the sweet potatoes with salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes, then flip the potatoes and roast for 8 to 10 minutes more, until tender and lightly browned.
  • Meanwhile, combine the quinoa with 2 cups water (or vegetable broth, if you prefer) in a saucepan and bring to a slow boil. Turn the heat down, cover, and simmer until the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes.
  • To assemble, divide the cooked quinoa evenly between 2 plates or bowls and season it with salt and pepper. Top with the roasted sweet potato rounds, the edamame, carrots, green onion, cilantro, and, if using, the sesame seeds, hemp seeds, and sprouts.

Drizzle with Orange-Maple Miso Dressing and enjoy!

ORANGE-MAPLE MISO DRESSING
Makes about 2/3 cup

  • 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

In a mini or regular food processor, combine all the ingredients and process until well combined.

**Sometimes to change things up I will add soy sauce and sriracha instead of the miso dressing and I will also add shrimp if I am wanting the extra protein and to eat some fish that day!
