Roasted Sweet Potato Taco Bowls

Don’t you just love foods served in a bowl? There’s something so carefree about it. This vegetarian taco bowl is full of good stuff too.

The star of this dish is the roasted sweet potatoes. I could seriously eat sweet potatoes every day. Not to mention sweet potatoes are packed with vitamin A, vitamin C and are rich in anti-oxidants!

The fiber in sweet potatoes also promotes a healthy gut since they contain both soluble and insoluble fiber. This promotes the growth of good gut bacteria and helps keep your gut health in check.

Build Your Sweet Potato Taco Bowl

Start with the base: The base is a chopped salad kit. Any brand will do, look for something similar to a Southwest or Taco flavor combo for this recipe. Salad kits also give you some fun (optional) toppings like tortilla strips, sunflower seeds and more.

Add your toppings: In this case, we’re talking about those roasted sweet potatoes, black beans, corn, tomatoes and avocado.

Mix it up: Drizzle with the dressing from your salad kit (or your favorite store-bought or homemade dressing), top with any extras and toss. Then dig in!
