1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 large red onion, diced
3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided
Freshly ground black pepper
1 lb. cottage cheese (any protein of your choice)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1 small clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp. creamy peanut butter
1/4 c. Juice of 1 lime
1 tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. toasted sesame oil
4 c. cooked brown rice
1 avocado, thinly sliced
2 c. baby spinach
1 tbsp. Freshly chopped cilantro, for garnish

- Preheat oven to 425°. On a large baking sheet, toss sweet potatoes and onion with 1 tablespoon of oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake until tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium- high heat, heat 1 tablespoon of oil. Season your protein with garlic powder, ginger, salt, and pepper. Cook until golden and no longer pink, 8 minutes per side. Let rest 10 minutes, then slice.
- In a small bowl, whisk together garlic, peanut butter, lime juice, soy sauce, and honey. Whisk in sesame oil and remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil until smooth.
- Divide rice among four bowls and top each with sweet potato mixture, chicken, avocado, and baby spinach. Sprinkle with cilantro and sesame seeds and drizzle with dressing before serving.
