Vegan roasted sweet potato bowls with kale and chickpeas topped with a smoky tahini dressing. This vegetable bowl recipe works great for meal prepping or a healthy filling oil-free dinner. 


  • 1 large sweet potato (about 1.73 lbs (785 g)) scrubbed clean, diced into bite-size pieces
  • 1 large red onion, peeled and cut into wedges or large dice
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder (the spice blend not cayenne pepper or chili flakes)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 56 cups fresh kale (or your favorite greens), stems removed and torn into bite-size pieces
  • 1 can (15 ounces (426 g)) chickpeas or your favorite can beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 recipe for smoky tahini dressing
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa


  • Pepitas (raw pumpkin seeds)




  1. Preheat oven 425 F (220 C).
  2. Toss the sweet potato with apple cider vinegar, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper.  Lift the vegetables out of the bowl, leaving any extra liquid behind, and spread out on a silicone mat or parchment paper-lined baking tray (for oil-free roasting).
  3. Add the red onion to the tray and toss with the sweet potato.
  4. Roast for 30-35 minutes stirring halfway through, or until the potatoes are easily pierced with a knife.
  5. While the vegetables are roasting cook your quinoa according to the package directions and make your tahini dressing.
  6. When ready to assemble add your desired amount of roasted vegetables, quinoa, chickpeas, and greens to a bowl.  Then top with tahini dressing.


The sweet potatoes may take longer to roast, it depends on how large of a cut they are.
