Simple Lunch Bowl

Simple Lunch Bowl

Lunchtime. Some days that means a quick peanut butter sandwich and an apple…BLAH. I seriously love lunchtime and want to eat something good! This simple lunch bowl has a list of simple ingredients that can be changed up to your liking, which means whatever veggies you have on hand will work! I love the warm sweet potatoes with the slightly crunchy chickpeas and with the hint of spice that makes them so yummy. The contrast of the cool spinach and carrot ribbons gives a nice textural element and freshness. I have used cucumbers, avocado, and different greens in this bowl and they all taste good! This much bowl travels well, so it makes for a nice picnic meal or work lunch too! Make lunchtime delicious!

Simple Lunch Bowl 3

1 medium sweet potato (I prefer the Japanese variety that is white inside)

1 can of garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and rinsed

drizzle of grape seed oil

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon chili flakes

2 cups spinach or other greens

1 medium carrot, peeled into ribbons

Dressing 

2 tablespoons grape seed oil

1/2 tablespoon lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon honey or agave

Heat your oven to 350 degrees. Scrub the sweet potato and cut it into wedges. Put the wedges on a foil-lined baking sheet and drizzle with grape seed oil. Toss. Sprinkle the wedges with cinnamon and a little sea salt. Place the baking sheet in the oven and cook the sweet potatoes for 30 minutes. Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven and sprinkle the chickpeas over the sweet potatoes and add the chili flakes. Place the baking sheet back in the oven and bake for another 30 minutes. Assemble your bowl by placing the sweet potatoes, chickpeas, spinach, and carrot ribbons in a bowl. Mix dressing ingredients together in a small bowl and drizzle over the vegetables. Enjoy!
