It is super simple to make and still taste great

I can’t believe I haven’t made a buddha bowl on here yet! This is one of my favourite meal prepping recipes ever! It is super simple to make and still taste great, even after it is sat in your fridge for days. I find I can typically keep it in the fridge for up to 3 days. After making this once you will find yourself coming back to it regularly! One of the nice things about making a buddha bowl is that you can mix it up every time! This recipe just so happens to be the one I went with today, however, they look different every time I make them!

Let’s begin! Go ahead and cut up your sweet potato into very small pieces and preheat your oven to 400 degrees (205 C). When your oven is ready to go, place the tray of sweet potatoes in the middle of your oven on a baking sheet. Make sure they are well spread out so they aren’t touching each other. Make sure to lightly cover them with olive oil and add a pinch of salt, pepper, and a lot of oregano. Bake for 10 minutes.

While that is in the oven, we can work on our chickpeas. Drain and rinse a can of chickpeas (or multiple if you are meal prepping) and put them into a little mixing bowl. Here you can add the following seasonings: cayenne pepper, cumin, masala, garlic powder, salt/pepper, and rosemary. Adjust the amount of seasoning you add to suit your preferences, however, try to add a very generous amount of each of them as these are one of the main staples of this dish!

Add your seasoned chickpeas to a large pan with a little bit of olive oil. Make sure the pan is big enough so they can lay flat and none of them is on top of each other. You want them to lay even on the pan, preferably with a little bit of space between them. Allow them to slowly cook on a very low heat setting, occasionally mixing.

It would make sense to put your quinoa on the stove now! However, I used some quinoa I had premade from the other day. I always like to have some quinoa ready to go because I use it a lot in my cooking! I also picked a lazy route and used store-bought hummus. Although, it is of course encouraged to make your own homemade hummus as well!

Once your sweet potato’s 10 minutes are up, you can take them out and add your broccoli to the pan. Drizzle some more olive oil over them, sprinkling them with some salt and pepper. Make sure these are also evenly layered out on the pan to ensure they cook thoroughly. Put the pan back in for another 10-15 minutes, depending on the size of your pieces.
Keep an eye on your chickpeas whilst you prepare the rest of your bowl and watch them turn a golden brown as their shells harden. I quickly shredded some beetroot and cut up some cabbage and added it to my bowl along with my quinoa. I didn’t cook my beetroot or cabbage as I like to keep some of the veggies raw to make it more fresh and light! When your sweet potatoes are ready to come out of the oven, it is safe to assume your chickpeas are done as well. Add the rest of your ingredients into your bowl and of course, top with
I used Green Cuisine CBD’s 10% CBD isolate drops. These are my favourite drops for cooking as they are completely tasteless! The only other ingredient besides pure CBD extract is organic olive oil. That being said, if your dish already contains olive oil you won’t even notice it! I also really like that all of Green Cuisine CBD’s products use 100% organic ingredients!

Lately, I have been pretty stressed out with my workload, which is why I used more CBD drops in this dish than I usually do. Today, I added 7 drops to help decrease the stress and anxiety that has come with my current schedule. This is one of the many benefits I get from taking CBD. Sometimes, self-care doesn’t look like a face mask or a bubble bath… Sometimes, self-care looks like turning off your laptop/phone, making a nourishing bowl of food, and loading it up with CBD drops! I must say, it definitely helped me as I really needed this!
