  1. Preheat the oven to 200c
  2. In a large roasting tray, add the cubed sweet potato and chickpeas and toss in the olive oil, cumin, Cajun spice, salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for 30 – 40mins until crispy and golden, turning every now and then.
  3. Fry the pumpkin seeds in the oil until you start hearing them pop, take off the heat and add a good pinch of salt and chilli flakes.
  4. Peel the carrots. Once peeled use the peeler to peel long ribbons lengthways down the carrot.
  5. Heat a pan of salted water and once boiling add the Tenderstem® and cook for 2 minutes or until bright green and tender.
  6. Assemble your Buddha bowl with the lettuce as a base and build up with the roasted sweet potato and chickpeas, cooked Tenderstem®, carrot ribbons and the hummus. Sprinkle with chilli pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds and drizzle with extra virgin oil.
