Vegan Protein Bowl With Roasted Veggies and Lemon Garlic Tahini

4 servings
1 hr

This meatless Monday meal rocked with flavour, crunch, protein, and it was delicious. The base of this bowl is quinoa. I roasted cubed squash, broccoli, and chickpeas which I seasoned with olive oil infused with herbs and added salt and chili powder. Once the quinoa and veggies were cooked, I built the bowl by adding sliced beets, radish, cucumber, sesame seeds, hemp seeds, avocado, and topping it with a drizzle of lemon tahini vinaigrette. It was a filling meal for my family, but you could also add a hard-boiled sliced egg for extra protein. The Tahini dressing will keep in the fridge for a week. I like using olive oil and they ship across Canada. Use promo code kotlerskitchen for a discount.
