Makes 1 serving
For the Buddha bowl:
- 3 young potatoes, washed and halved
- a small beet, washed, peeled and cut into wedges (cut them a bit thinner than potatoes for similar cooking time)
- a handful of cooked wax beans
- red cabbage sauerkraut (or your favorite fermented food)
- half of an avocado
- a handful of cauliflower
- a handful of The Beginnings kale chips
- salt & pepper to taste
- olive oil for baking
For the tahini dressing:
- 2 tbsp. tahini
- 1 tbsp. water
- 2 tsp light miso paste
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp date syrup (or another sweetener)
- Lay a pan with a baking paper, spread over the potatoes and beets. Sprinkle with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180C for about 25 - 30 minutes until potatoes and beets are fork-tender.
- In the last 10 minutes of baking, add wax beans in the oven with salt and pepper to heat them.
- While the veggies are baking, prepare the dressing. Put all the ingredients into a small bowl and whisk with a fork until smooth and creamy (you can also use a blender).
- Assemble the Buddha bowl – in a medium-size bowl add the cooked veggies and beans, sauerkraut, avocado, cauliflower and kale chips in the middle. Drizzle with the tahini dressing and enjoy!
