Crispy roasted sweet potato, fluffy quinoa, buttery beans, sweet pomegranate seeds and crunchy nuts on a bed of greens. All of this is tossed in a super duper easy hummus dressing to unify all the flavours. I believe you are already hungry. And what if I tell you that this is done in 30 minutes? Put the ingredients on your grocery list and make this!
Truly, nothing is better than a vibrant, colourful bowl packed with lots and lots of different ingredients, lots and lots of nutrients and lots and lots of yumminess. Bowls probably are the best things to eat because you can always switch things up and get creative depending on what you are craving and which foods there are in season!
What’s special about this dish?
This is kind of a mix of a bowl and a salad but it still is super filling. What I love about this dish is that you are getting in a lot of nutrients and greens and still have a comforting bowl.
But what’s most special about this dish is the super easy dressing. It takes 3 ingredients and is done in 1 minute. It is definitely not your regular salad dressing, but one that is full of flavour and tanginess and made with one of the best ingredients ever: Hummus. The dressing simply is made out of hummus, lemon juice and water.
Which Hummus works best?
It is best to use a very creamy one and not a hard one! You can make your own one or you can use a store bought one, whatever you prefer! I love to either use my homemade one or the one from NENI ! This one you can find at SPAR, Tegut, Rossman and EDEKA Österreich!
Is this dish healthy?
It definitely is! Salad, sweet potato, beans, nuts, hummus, quinoa. How can such a combination not be a nutrient-bomb? Let’s start slow; we probably all know that any sort of green is highly nutritious because of its high vitamin and fibre content. Sweet Potatoes actually are super healthy too. They are incredibly high in protein, vitamin D and C and in fibre! Plus, they provide you with lots of carbohydrates, which will give you energy to get going through the rest of your day.
Next up we have butter beans. These are loaded with protein and fibre. Great for your digestion and muscles, plus super tasty. Nuts are high in unsaturated fats, which will keep you full for a while and are important for your brain. Hummus, similar to beans is high in protein, fibre but also in unsaturated fats, which are good for the skin. Quinoa, my favourite grain of all time is a nutrient-bomb itself. Protein, carbs, fibre, vitamins, … you name it – Quinoa has got it!
How to make this dish:
Start by preparing the sweet potato. For this just chop it up into small cubes, toss it in the oil and spices and bake in the oven. Then you can leave them there for 20-25 minutes and in the meantime prepare the quinoa. Add it to a pot along with twice the amount of water and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Once all water is absorbed, turn down to low heat and let it fluff up.
Now you only need to make the hummus dressing and assemble. You could style it prettily or you could just throw everything into a bowl and toss it till you have got the creamy hummus dressing on everything!
When, how, meal prep?
I love this as a lunch because it is fairly quick, but it actually also works as a brunch or dinner bowl. I prefer having it as is but if you feel hungrier r in the need of more, you could serve it with some bread or scrambled eggs!
Yes, it is meal prep friendly, just store the dressing aside, so the salad and the ingredients will not get soggy and keep everything in the fridge until you enjoy it!
I hope that you will enjoy this recipe and make it on repeat!
