Sweet Potato Vegan Buddha Bowl! If you love sweet potato buddha bowls, then you will love this vegan buddha bowl version. Roasted sweet potatoes, tofu, kale, couscous and a creamy lemon tahini dressing. 



Roasted Sweet Potatoes

  • 3 large sweet potatoes, cubed
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. Garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt

Roasted Tofu Cubes

  • 1 container firm tofu, drained and pressed
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Shredded Kale
Cooked Couscous or other grain of choice
Sliced avocado, seeds for topping 

Lemon Tahini Dressing 

  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 1/4 lemon juice
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup cold water


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Make the sweet potatoes: Cube the sweet potatoes and toss with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet and loosely tent with foil. Place in the oven and cook for 20 minutes, then remove the foil and cook an additional 15-20 minutes until crispy.
  3. Make the tofu: Toss the tofu with olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Place on a separate baking sheet in a single layer and cook for 20 minutes, until golden brown and crispy.
  4. While the potatoes and tofu are cooking, slice the kale and cook the couscous.
  5. Make the lemon tahini dressing: Place the tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt and cumin in a bowl and gently whisk together. Add the water a tablespoon at a time and whisk until creamy; it will likely seize up on you, that’s OK- just keep whisking. Keep adding the water until creamy and smooth.
  6. Assemble! Divide the couscous, sweet potatoes, kale and tofu into 4 bowls; drizzle with lemon tahini dressing and top with avocado, nuts/seeds of choice.
