Preheat oven to 350F. Coat sweet potato in 1 tsp oil and season with 1 tsp salt. Place on a baking tray and pop into the oven to roast for 35 minutes, turning once halfway through the cooking time.
Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine drained chickpeas, 1 1/2 T sriracha, 1 tsp maple syrup, paprika, garlic powder, and 1 tsp salt.  Mix to combine. Heat a saucepan and transfer chickpea mixture into saucepan to cook for 5-10 minutes. Make sure to keep the chickpeas moving so they don’t burn. Cook until chickpeas are slightly sticky and no longer watery. Keep aside.
In a clean saucepan, wilt the cabbage and lightly season. Once sweet potato is cooked through, prepare your Buddha bowl by placing your rice in the bottom of a bowl and then topping with sweet potato, chickpeas, red cabbage, diced sweet peppers, and avocado.
To make dressing, whisk together nut butter with 1/2 C warm water, 1 tsp maple syrup, cayenne, turmeric, the remaining 1/2 tsp sriracha, and the remaining tsp salt. Drizzle over the Buddha bowl. Garnish with nuts, herbs, and/or a twist of lime.
