  • 1 cup (178g) brown basmati rice + ingredients called for
  • 2 (555g) large sweet potatoes ~4 cups
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 1/4 cup olive oil separated
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • Salt and pepper 1/2 teaspoon each
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans drained and rinsed
  • Toppings: cilantro, fresh lime, avocado(s), jalapenos (optional)


  • 1/2 cup (110g) full fat regular mayo no substitutes
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice 1/4 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha or hot sauce
  • Pinch of salt and ground black pepper (1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon pepper)


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Start by cooking the brown rice according to package directions. Allow to cool before assembling the final bowls.
  • Peel the sweet potatoes and chop into bite-sized chunks. Slice the bell peppers and set aside.
  • Toss the potatoes with 3 tablespoons olive oil, paprika, and chipotle chili powder.
  • Place the potatoes in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and add in the sliced peppers and toss around with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil.
  • Return to the oven and cook for another 15-20 minutes or until the peppers are crisp tender and the potatoes are tender.
  • Remove and toss on the tray with the rinsed and dried black beans.
  • Allow these roasted veggies to cool down to just above room temperature.
  • While everything is cooking, in a small bowl, combine all of the dressing ingredients (mayo, lime juice and zest, ground cumin, paprika, chili powder, and Sriracha) and whisk together until completely combined.
  • Prep the toppings: chop cilantro, slice an avocado, slice a jalapeno, and slice a lime.
  • Make the bowls: fill a bowl with cooked and cooled rice, top with cooled veggies and beans, and add toppings and dressing.
  • Enjoy immediately.



*Chipotle chili powder is just a variety of chili powder with all the other seasonings. Regular chili powder will work fine.
