Chile and Lime Veggie Bowls

 too darn hot to want to eat those hearty meals that taste so good in the winter months. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining about the warm weather  (I am such a fan of summer), but meals need to be adjusted. I found this recipe for Chile and Lime Veggie Bowls from the little red house and it looks amazing! So colorful and nutrtitious. I mean, sweet potatoes, edamame, avocado.. what’s not to love? Pretty amazing, as is the entire the little red house blog!!

1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp fresh oregano, snipped, or 1/2 tsp. dried oregano, crushed
1 tsp olive oil
2 medium sweet potatos, peeled and cut in 1-inch cubes
1 15-oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
1 cup shelled edamame
1 medium avocado, halved, seeded, peeled, and chopped
large cabbage leaves
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
lime wedges (optional)

1. Make dressing by combining 1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt, 2 tbs lime juice, 1 tbs soy sauce, 1 tbs chili powder, and 1 clove minced garlic, 2 tbs chopped cilantro, 1 tbs chopped chives in a small bowl. Whisk in 1/4 cup olive oil until well combined. Set aside.
2. In another bowl, stir soy sauce, lime juice, chili powder, oregano, and olive oil; add diced sweet potatoes and toss to coat. Roast at 425° for 30-40 minutes until done.
3. Serve the roasted sweet potatoes, beans, tomatoes, edamame, and avocado onto cabbage leaves and sprinkle with green onions. Add dressing & enjoy!
