 Prep Time: 15 mins  Cook Time: 20 mins  Total Time: 35 mins

Ingredients

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

  • 1 sweet potato (about 1 lb.)
  • 1 Tbsp cooking oil

Seasoned Tempeh*

  • 8 oz. tempeh
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • freshly cracked pepper

Bowl Ingredients

  • 4 cups cooked rice
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
  • 1 jalapeño
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/4 cup sour cream

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Peel and dice the sweet potato into 1/2-inch cubes. Spread the cubes out onto a baking sheet, drizzle with oil, then toss to coat. Season with a pinch of salt.
  • Roast the sweet potatoes in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, stirring half way through. Once roasted, set aside.
  • While the sweet potatoes are roasting, prepare the seasoned tempeh. Crumble the brick of tempeh into a skillet. Add the water, oil, tomato paste, chili powder, smoked paprika, cumin, cayenne, oregano, garlic powder, salt, and some freshly cracked pepper (about 10 cranks of a pepper mill). Stir briefly to combine.
  • Place a lid on the skillet and turn the heat on to medium. Allow the skillet to come up to a simmer. Let the tempeh simmer, stirring every few minutes, for about 10 minutes total, or until the liquid reduces to a thick sauce.
  • While the tempeh is simmering, slice the avocado and jalapeño. 
  • To build the bowls, place 1 cup cooked rice in the bottom of each bowl. Divide the seasoned tempeh, roasted sweet potatoes, corn, and avocado between all four bowls. Top each bowl with 1 to 2 tablespoons of salsa, 1 tablespoon of sour cream, and a few slices of jalapeño. Eat immediately or refrigerate for up to 4 days.
