🌿 Ingredient Notes

Quinoa: Cooked quinoa adds protein and makes a meal out of rainbow veggies. You can use white or red quinoa or other grains like brown rice or millet if you prefer.

Fresh vegetables: Carrots, cabbage, cucumber, spinach, bell pepper, radish, avocado, and corn adds all the colors to this rainbow bowl. If you are not a fan of one of these ingredients, feel free to switch out for something you prefer more. Sweet potatoes, beets, cherry tomatoes, red onion slices, and green beans are other good choices. You can also use roasted veggies like this Oven Roasted Corn.

Sunflower seeds: This adds textural contrast with a little crunch and additional protein and healthy fats. You can swap it out for pumpkin seeds or hemp seeds if you prefer. Roasted chickpeas and hummus are other great choices. If you are not vegan or dairy-free, feta cheese makes a nice choice, too.

Golden Tahini Sauce: An easy homemade golden tahini sauce made with anti-inflammatory turmeric, ties everything together and finishes this bowl off with a pop of flavor and color. If you are not a fan of tahini, romesco sauce or tzatziki sauce are other great choices.

    I HAD to make this because of the colors and it didn’t disappoint! So deliciously fresh.

    This is my favorite kind of lunch, and I loved this salad because it holds up well in the fridge (without the avocado) for a few days of lunch. LOVE this tahini dressing!
