A Soul Bowl is composed of six local, seasonal components: 1) Greens (steamed, roasted, or sautéed), 2) Vegetables (steamed, roasted, or sautéed), 3) a grain, 4) a protein, 5) a healthy fat, and 6) a dressing.


You can design a Soul Bowl to suit your cravings and your pantry! The main thing to keep in mind is, when in doubt, keep it simple. The six components of the below Soul Bowl are:

  1. Greens: sauteed kale
  2. Vegetables: sweet potato hash and sautéed broccoli
  3. A grain: Brittany Lynn’s Honey Crumble Cornbread
  4. Protein: poached eggs
  5. A healthy fat (think Omega 3s and 6s): avocado (eggs fit this category, as well)
  1. A dressing: cilanto pico de gallo


For the Sweet Potato Hash + Broccoli and Kale 

  1. Using a hand grater, a food processor with a julienne grater attachment, or a spiralizer, transform your

scrubbed sweet potatoes into hash form. (I like to leave the skins on my sweet potatoes–many nutrients in

the skin.)

  1. In a bowl, toss with taco seasoning.
  2. In a large skillet (cast iron works best, if you have one), bring your oil of choice to a simmer over

medium/high heat (I recommend a high smoke point oil like avocado, palm, or coconut oil)

  1. Toss in your hash and allow to cook for one minute, stirring intermittently.
  2. Cover with a lid and allow to cook for one minute, toss again, cover and cooked for another minute.

Uncover and turn the heat down to medium/low and throw in your broccoli florets, kale, and kale stems.

You’ll know your hash is ready when you’ve got some browned crispies appearing.

  1. Turn off the heat and toss in the chopped cilantro.
