This Sweet Potato and Greens Bowl is a delicious way to enjoy a combination of fall flavors and textures!
Sweet potatoes and greens are a staple in many households for their versatility and because they’re readily found in most grocery stores and farmers’ markets.
This bowl features a delicious fall ingredient that you may not think to purchase as often — figs.
Not only do figs add a nice sweet flavor to balance out the salty and savory ingredients, but they’re also incredibly fiber-rich, both with soluble and insoluble fiber that help our digestive systems stay regular and keep our blood sugar stable. Figs are also rich in minerals such as manganese, magnesium, calcium, and potassium; all of which are important for cardiovascular health, bone health, and reducing blood pressure.
The combination of ingredients in this bowl will hit almost all of your taste buds!
