Tahini Veg Bowls


  • 1 Cup of Uncooked Quinoa (170g)
  • 2 Cups of Stock (500ml)
  • 60g of Greens (Kale, Spinach, Lettuce)
  • 30g of Mixed Seeds

For the Roast Vegetables:

  • 1 Cauliflower
  • 2 Red Peppers
  • 2 Courgettes or Aubergines
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 Teaspoon of Smoked Paprika
  • 1 Teaspoon of Cumin
  • 1 Teaspoon of Dried Oregano

For the Dressing:

  • 1/4 Cup of Olive Oil (60ml)
  • 1/4 Cup of Lemon Juice (60ml)
  • 2 Tablespoons of Tahini
  • 2 Teaspoons of Maple Syrup
  • 1 Teaspoon of Dijon Mustard
  • Sea Salt & Pepper

These tahini veg bowls are my kind of meal. Don’t get too hung up on what vegetables you use- just use whatever’s in season/whatever’s in your fridge! I’m in love with this dressing, it’s so creamy and tastes good on just about anything.   

Preheat the oven to 200’C. Add the quinoa and stock to a saucepan on medium heat. Pop the lid on and let it simmer until all of the liquid has been absorbed. Then set it aside off the heat with the lid on.

Chop the vegetables and spread them out on two roasting trays. Sprinkle the paprika, cumin and a good pinch of sea salt over the cauliflower, then drizzle over some olive oil. Toss well. Repeat with the peppers and courgettes but use oregano in place of the spices. Pop in the oven to roast for 30-40 minutes.

Whisk together all of the dressing ingredients. Toast the seeds in a pan on medium heat until popping and toasted.

Fill each serving bowl with some quinoa, greens and roast veg. Sprinkle over the toasted seeds and pour over the dressing.

    I”m a vegetarian with vegan leanings and I don”t have any problems at all with any deficiencies. I”ve never been anaemic or needed iron supplements. Iron isn”t just in red meat, it”s in pulses and beans, nuts and seeds, dried fruit, dark green leady veg, wholegrains, tofu, all sorts. People are always telling me that a vegan diet doesn”t give you enough protein, but that”s a myth as protein is found in lots of non-dairy milk, nuts and nut butter, lentils, veg like spinach and kale, seeds, quinoa, tofu, beans etc. Meat and dairy don”t suit my digestive system, so I gave up meat and have cut down on dairy. All my levels in a recent blood test were super healthy.
