Power Bowls have been our families weeknight dinner solution ever since having kids. I leave the bowls deconstructed for picky little eaters and for myself (+ Andy!), I pile on the veggies, sauce and spicy condiments for a more delicious and nourishing meal. 

 

Prepping the components that go into a beautiful bowl in one night is a lot of work. That’s why it’s essential to plan ahead. Prep enough sauce, protein and quinoa or rice for multiple dinners and get creative with leftovers. I never tire of Power Bowls for dinner since there are endless combinations.

RECIPE: LEMON TAHINI SAUCE


This simple tahini sauce complements just about any type of bowl (and salads too!). I love it drizzled on top of rice with veggies and a protein. When you top a nourishing, veggie-packed bowl with a flavorful sauce, you’ll feel satiated longer. 

 

Tahini is high in minerals (including iron), B vitamins, antioxidants, and of course healthy fats. Don’t skip the raw garlic as that adds a flavor pop, plus is great for your immune system. Garlic has natural antiviral and antibacterial compounds. 

 

Ingredients:

 

  • ½ cup tahini (unsalted)
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 small garlic clove, finely minced 
  • ½ teaspoon fine salt

 

Instructions:

 

Stir together the tahini, lemon juice, water, garlic, and salt. Seal with a lid and give a good shake. Taste and add more salt and pepper, if needed. 

 

Stays fresh for up to 1 week in the fridge. If too thick, thin with a tablespoon of water.
