Summer is back, and so is our love for all things tangy and fresh! This veggie quinoa bowl can be mixed and matched to suit your preferences (or whatever you have left in your fridge that needs to be used up). The real star is the tahini lime dressing– it can be used as a salad dressing, a sauce for quinoa bowls like we’ve done here, or even to marinate tofu!

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon GoGo Quinoa Andean pink salt
  • 1 head of cauliflower, quartered, cored and cut into bite-sized florets
  • 3 carrots, peeled and sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 can chick peas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 2 teaspoons tumeric
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup GoGo Quinoa white royal quinoa, cooked according to package directions

LIME TAHINI SAUCE

  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • zest of 1 lime
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup flat leaf parsley
  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves
  • 2 tablespoons honey or agave
  • 1 teaspoon GoGo Quinoa Andean pink salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • Baby spinach leaves, for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the cauliflower, carrots, sweet potato, chick peas, olive oil and spices. Mix well until all the vegetables are evenly coated.
  3. Spread the vegetables onto a parchment lined sheet pan and roast for 20 minutes. Flip them over and roast for another 10 minutes.
  4. While the vegetables are roasting, prepare the quinoa in a medium saucepan, according to package directions.
  5. Next, prepare the sauce. In a blender or food processor, combine lime juice, zest, olive oil, tahini, coconut milk, parsley, spinach and honey and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  6. To assemble, divide the cooked quinoa and vegetables into 4 serving bowls. Drizzle with the lime tahini sauce and sprinkle a few spinach leaves on top. Serve with extra sauce on the side. The sauce can be made ahead and will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a week.
