Ingredients


1/3 cup Tahini (for dressing)
1/3 cup Water (for dressing)
1/4 cup Lemon juice (for dressing)
1 clove(s) Garlic (crushed, for dressing)
1/2 tsp Cumin (for dressing)
1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper (for dressing)
1 pinch Sea salt (for dressing)
2 1/2 cup Brown rice, medium-grain, cooked (gluten free)
1 can (15oz) Chickpeas, canned, drained (rinsed)
1 bag(s) Baby spinach
2 beet(s) Beets, raw
2 medium Zucchini
3 medium Carrots
1 small head Red cabbage
1 avocado(s) Avocado
1/2 bunch Green onion, scallion, ramp
1/2 cup Pumpkin seeds (pepitas)

Instructions


1. Prepare the dressing by placing all the ingredients in a blender and puréeing until smooth. If you don't have a blender, mince the garlic, then whisk the ingredients together in a bowl. Refrigerate the dressing until ready to use.

2. Cool the cooked rice, if needed. Drain the can of chickpeas. Wash the beets, zucchini, and carrots well.

3. Use a food processor or large-holed cheese grater to shred the beets, zucchini, and carrots. Remove any wilted leaves from the cabbage, then cut into quarters, and remove the core. Shred the cabbage using a food processor, or slice thinly with a knife.

4. Slice the avocado and green onion.

5. To build the bowls, place about ½ cup of the cooked rice in a bowl along with about ¼ cup of chickpeas. Add a handful of baby greens, shredded beets, zucchini, carrots, and cabbage. Top with a few slices of avocado and a sprinkle of pepitas and sliced onion.

6. Finally, drizzle the lemon tahini dressing liberally over the bowl.

Enjoy!
