  • 1 cup Baby Spinach
  • 1 Avocado sliced

For the roasted sweet potato

  • 1 large Sweet Potato cut into chunks
  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Salt

For the chickpeas

  • 1 can Chickpeas drained
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Sriracha

  • Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Coat sweet potato in 1 tsp oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on baking tray and pop into the oven to roast for 35 minutes, turning once halfway through the cooking time.
  • Whilst sweet potato is cooking, prepare chickpeas. In a bowl, combine chickpeas, sriracha, maple syrup, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Mix to combine. Heat a saucepan and transfer chickpea mixture into saucepan to cook for 5-10 minutes. Make sure to keep the chickpeas moving so they don't burn. Cook until chickpeas are slightly sticky and no longer watery. Keep aside.

  • To make dressing, whisk all ingredients together. Drizzle over the buddha bowl.
