how to make it…
Pre-heat oven to 180°C

Making the sweet potato
Chop up the sweet potato into cubes.
To bake without oil, steam or boil the sweet potato first for 10 minutes, then place on a baking tray with a sprinkle of salt and pepper.

Bake for about 15 more minutes until sweet potato is tender.

Whilst the sweet potato is baking, mix all the sauce ingredients together in a bowl.

Pour the sauce over the sweet potato in the baking tray, mix together to make
sure all the potato is covered in the sauce.

Place back into the oven for about 5-10 minutes.

Making the hummus
Place all hummus ingredients into the food processor or high speed blender,
except the water, and pulse until smooth, adding water if needed.

Taste to see if you want to add more salt or chilli for heat, or lemon juice for acidity.

For the Quinoa
Measure out 1 cup quinoa, give it a rinse and then place in a pot with 2 cups of salted boiling water.

Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 15 minutes.

Turn heat off and put the lid on for 10 minutes for delicious fluffy quinoa.

For the greens
You can really use any kind of green vegetables.

Steam, sauté, roast or simply eat raw.

I steamed the broccolini and peas for around 5-8 minutes.

Once you have all the parts ready you can start assembling your bowl.

Begin filling 1/4 of your bowl with quinoa, scoop out a generous serving of the miso sweet potato, a large dollop of hummus and then your greens.

Top with some fresh chilli, green onions and toasted sesame seeds and enjoy your protein packed, nutrient dense bowl of goodness!!
