Vegan Tofu, Sweet Potato & Veggie Bowls {V, GF, Paleo, Healthy}

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

A few months ago I had my wisdom teeth removed and for the first few weeks I was unable to eat hard crunchy foods, therefore I had to improvise in my diet and change it up a bit. I started by drinking only smoothies in the beginning but then once my jaw mobility increased I was able to resume somewhat normal eating, just sticking to soft foods, such as the recipe I am sharing today. ๐Ÿ™‚

If you are paleo, vegan, gluten-free or looking for an overall healthy recipe then definitely give this one a try. I first got into making ‘bowl’ recipes a few months ago with this Paleo whole 30 BBQ Chicken & Sweet Potato Bowl but since I’ve been avoiding meat these past few months I needed to come up with a new one!

This recipe is the perfect dish to whip up and store/meal prep with since you can easily make it in bulk. I suggest eating it within 4-5 days though because the sweet potatoes will begin to get soggy after a few days in the fridge. To combat this though you can simply throw them in the oven along with the tofu for a few minutes to warm up/re-crisp before eating.

Give this delish dish a try and leave a comment below with your thoughts! ๐Ÿ™‚
