Hearty root vegetables & greens, protein-packed quinoa and chickpeas, and tangy tahini dressing all come together for this delicious meal idea!


Quinoa Bowl

Makes 1 to 2 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Kale, rinsed and chopped

  • 1 Sweet red pepper, diced

  • 1/2 cup Chickpeas (canned), rinsed and drained

  • 1 Sweet potato, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 1 cup Cooked Quinoa


For Dressing:

  • 2 tbsp Tahini sauce

  • Juice from 1/2 lemon

  • Pinch of salt, or to taste

  • Dash of curry powder

  • 1/4 tsp Maple syrup

  • 1 - 2 tbsp of Water


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 410 degrees. Prepare your vegetables and other ingredients.

  2. In a bowl, place sweet potato and toss with salt, black pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil. Then place on a parchment paper-lined sheet pan. Roast in the oven for approx 30 min or until tender. Remove from oven and let cool.

  3. Place quinoa, chickpeas, kale, red pepper, and sweet potatoes into a large bowl or deep-dish plate. Some prefer to keep ingredients separate, but you can also toss them together.

  4. Prepare the dressing by mixing all of the ingredients into a bowl. Add the water one tablespoon at a time to create the right consistency. The dressing should not be too thick but rather pours easily onto your quinoa bowl.

  5. Pour dressing onto your quinoa bowl and enjoy!
