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.

How to Roast Sweet Potatoes

  1. Peel and chop sweet potatoes in to dice-sized pieces. Spread out on baking sheet.
  2. Drizzle with olive oil and seasonings. Use your hands or tongs to toss until well coated.
  3. Bake in 400F oven for 15-20 minutes, until tender.

Build Your 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!

Taco Bowl Variations

  • Swap your base for your favorite greens, quinoa or rice.
  • Make it spicy by adding jalapeños, topping with a spicy salsa or upping the chili powder on the potatoes.
  • Add protein with grilled chicken, steak, shrimp or your other favorite taco protein.
