A buddha bowl gets its name because it should be packed so full that it has a rounded ‘belly’ appearance on the top much like the belly of a buddha. Here's a recipe for a flavorful buddha bowl.

2 Tbsp Olive, melted coconut, or avocado oil
1/2 medium red onion (sliced in wedges)
2 sweet potatoes or regular potatoes (cut into small chunks)
