Here’s How to Make This Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl With Turmeric Granola:
Note that this breakfast bowl recipe does require a bit of prep time to cook the sweet potatoes and make your granola, so plan accordingly.
But I’ll tell you now that it is well worth the preparation!
Breakfast Bowl Ingredients:
- 1 large cooked sweet potato, cubed
- 5-6 leaves of kale, destemmed and roughly chopped
- 1 tsp. of olive oil
- 1 large avocado, cubed
- 1 tomato, finely diced
- 2 tsp. lemon juice
- 6 basil leaves, finely chopped
- 1 tsp. black tahini (optional – you can also use regular tahini)
- 4 Tbsp. granola (see recipe below)
- 2 Tbsp. cashew cheese
- 2 Tbsp. sauerkraut
- Salt and pepper to taste
Breakfast Bowl Preparation
First, steam your sweet potato until tender (or have it pre-cooked and ready to go ahead of time!). This is also a good time to start making your savory granola (scroll down for the ingredients and preparation).
While that’s cooking, in a large bowl, add the kale and olive oil and massage gently to soften the kale a little.
In another bowl, add the avocado, tomato, lemon, basil leaves and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix well to combine.
In two bowls, evenly distribute the sweet potato, kale and avocado mixture. Add a tablespoon of cashew cheese and sauerkraut to each bowl.
Top with the savory granola (recipe below, or you have the option to add any type of granola you’d like), a drizzle of black tahini, and season with salt and pepper if desired.
Savory Granola Ingredients:
- 2 cups rolled oats
- ¼ cup raw pumpkin seeds
- ¼ cup raw sunflower seeds
- 2 Tbsp. sesame seeds
- ½ cup pecans, chopped roughly
- 1 Tbsp. ground flax meal
- ¾ tsp. salt
- 1½ tsp. turmeric powder
- ½ tsp. curry powder
- ¼ teaspoon cumin
- 3 Tbsp. olive oil
- 2 Tbsp. coconut nectar
Savory Granola Preparation:
Heat your oven to 365° (or 180° Celsius).
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until very well combined.
Spread the granola over a baking tray and bake for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through. The granola should be golden and a little crunchy but keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn!
Pro Tip: The granola will keep in a sealed glass jar or airtight container for 3-4 weeks, so if you want more for later, you can double the amount of ingredients.
