Roasted Broccoli, Sweet Potato & Chickpea Buddha Bowl

Author: Karen Porter, RHN

For almost 30 years Karen battled severe IBS, & anxiety.

Forced to re-evaluate and take her health into her own hands, she started looking into alternative methods to help her heal where the traditional medical approach had failed. 

Karen’s health, and consequently her life, entirely shifted and she felt compelled to help as many women as possible to feel their absolute best!  

 

I love the taste of these roasted vegetables and quinoa topped with this delicious nutty ginger sauce! I'm often roasting vegetables, but this drool-worthy sauce takes it to a whole new level! In my picture, I have it on a plate, but feel free to put yours in a bowl! It's a great source of plant-based protein, healthy fat and fibre rich carbohydrates all in one recipe! I adapted this recipe from Hummusapien.
