Top Engine 2 Recipes: Rip’s Sweet Potato Bowl

I love this simple and fast dinner  bowl! Filled with all kinds of nutritious and delicious ingredients, it has a great variety of tastes and colors, and is truly satisfying.

I always keep a few cooked sweet potatoes in the fridge so I can pop them in the microwave for three to four minutes while chopping up the other ingredients. Dinner is done in less than six minutes!

**To make this recipe Seven-Day Rescue Challenge compliant, simply use half an avocado for two bowls instead of one full avocado.
