How to make this buddha bowl
- Preheat the oven to 400 F (205 C) and bake sweet potatoes on a parchment-lined baking sheet for one hour.
- While the sweet potatoes are in the oven, cook the sorghum. Rinse the sorghum and add to a pot of water. Bring the pot to a boil. Then reduce heat and simmer covered for 45 to 50 minutes.
- While sorghum and sweet potatoes are cooking, prepare Muriwo Unedovi (Peanut Butter Greens) according to the recipe instructions. The peanut butter greens take about 30 minutes to whip up, so everything should be done around the same time.
- Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven and carefully remove the skin (if desired). When safe to handle, cut into large chunks. Set aside.
- After the sorghum is done cooking, drain the sorghum and set it aside.
- Assemble the bowl with roughly equal parts: peanut butter greens, sweet potato, and sorghum. You can salt to taste, but I find the sauce from the peanut butter greens to provide plenty of flavor to the sorghum and sweet potato.
To meal prep, this delicious dish, portion it into individual freezer-safe containers. Freeze for up to 4 months. To reheat, remove from the freezer and let thaw in the refrigerator. Or pop it in the microwave and heat at a reduced temperature for 3 minutes. Rotate and continue to heat for another 1 to 2 minutes or desired temperature.
