Spring has arrived and grilling season is here!

I’m not going to lie, I own 4 grills. An indoor grill,  a tabletop outdoor grill, a rolling “tailgate” grill and a fancy new Char-Broil infrared grill.

To say I enjoy grilling would be an understatement!

Roasted sweet potatoes in bowls with quinoa, shredded carrots and cilantro

While 2016 was the year that the Wall Street Journal claimed “Bowls Are The New Plates“, the bowl trend isn’t going anywhere in 2017! According to the “Pinterest 100”, Buddha Bowls are one of the Top 10 Food Trend Predictions of 2017!

So what exactly is a Buddha Bowl? It’s a healthy bowl filled with a whole grain, such as brown rice or quinoa and raw or cooked veggies, such as sweet potatoes, broccoli or cauliflower. It’s then topped with a healthy sauce or dip, such as hummus, peanut sauce or pesto.

I love the Buddha Bowl Trend because it’s a fun way to play around with different healthy options in the kitchen without eating the same thing over and over! It’s also great for meal prepping. You can easily prepare a few delicious bowls to eat for lunch or dinner throughout the week.

In this recipe, I roasted sweet potatoes with rosemary, garlic, cinnamon, salt and pepper, bringing a ton of flavor to this healthy bowl! I tossed the sweet potatoes on top of cooked quinoa, which adds fiber, protein and a nuttiness to the bowl. Brown rice, farro, couscous, or your favorite grain would also work well!

I topped the bowl with shredded carrots, cilantro, peanuts and most importantly, my famous Thai Peanut Sauce! This recipe makes more peanut sauce than you need for this recipe. Place the remainder of the sauce in a mason jar and store it in the fridge for up to two weeks. And I promise, you won’t be disappointed that you have extra of this sauce on hand!

It’s so delicious on everything from Thai Peanut Chicken Naan Pizzas, to Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Turkey Meatballs. If you’re looking for more vegan recipes to use it on, try these Thai Peanut Pineapple Veggie Rice Bowls or these Thai Peanut Noodles with Vegetables!
