This Enlightened Miso Power Bowl is a fun recipe that will keep your energy high for hours. Miso is a fermented food that aids in digestion and adds a wonderful umami flavor to foods. If you are new to miso, Orange-Maple Miso Dressing is a great way to incorporate it into your diet. It’s a great gluten-free, nut-free, refined sugar–free, and soy-free option!

Enlightened Miso Power Bowl

Serves: 2


  • 1 sweet potato, cut into 1⁄2-inch rounds
  • 1 1⁄2 tsp olive oil or coconut oil, melted
  • fine-grain sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
To assemble
  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame, thawed
  • 1 medium carrot, julienned
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1⁄4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds, optional
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds, optional
  • 1⁄2 cup sprouts, optional
  • Orange-Maple Miso Dressing (recipe follows)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place the sweet potato rounds on the prepared baking sheet and drizzle them with the oil, rubbing it on both sides to coat. Sprinkle the sweet potatoes with salt and pepper.
  3. Roast for 20 minutes, then flip the potatoes and roast for 8 to 10 minutes more, until tender and lightly browned.
  4. Meanwhile, combine the quinoa with 2 cups water (or vegetable broth, if you prefer) in a saucepan and bring to a slow boil. Turn the heat down, cover, and simmer until the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes.
  5. To assemble, divide the cooked quinoa evenly between 2 plates or bowls and season it with salt and pepper. Top with the roasted sweet potato rounds, the edamame, carrots, green onion, cilantro, and, if using, the sesame seeds, hemp seeds, and sprouts.
  6. Drizzle with Orange-Maple Miso Dressing and enjoy!

    This is such a great quick and healthy dinner, a big favourite with my family. I love how you can use pretty much whatever veggies you have on hand. I really like this dish with sauteed kale or spinach (saute with a little sesame oil and add some toasted sesame seeds.)
