Ingredients

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes or yams, peeled and chopped into 1-inch (2.5cm) cubes
  • olive oil spray
  • 2 pinches of smoked paprika
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 3 cup (720ml) water
  • 1½ cup (270g) roasted buckwheat groats (kasha)
  • 2-3 cup (60-90g) chopped spinach
  • 1½ cup (265g) cooked, warm kidney beans (or one 15oz/425g can, rinsed and drained; or use another bean of your choice)
  • 1 cucumber, sliced
  • 1 avocado, pitted, peeled, and sliced
  • pickled red cabbage & onion relish
  • lemon tahini sauce or avocado ranch dressing
  • ⅓ cup (55g) toasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F/220°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Spread out the sweet potato cubes on the pan and spray with olive oil. Add the paprika, salt, and pepper and toss to coat. Bake for 30 minutes, or until tender and browned, tossing once halfway through to ensure even cooking. Set aside to cool.
  • While the sweet potatoes are cooking, cook the buckwheat groats: Bring the water to a boil in a medium pot. Add the buckwheat groats and return to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer until most of the water has been absorbed, 11 to 12 minutes. Remove from the heat and add salt.
  • To serve, fill each bowl with spinach, buckwheat groats, beans, sweet potato, cucumber, avocado, and cabbage relish. Drizzle with dressing and top with toasted pepitas.
