Ingredients

  • 1 bunch radishes, halved
  • 4 golden beets, peeled and quartered
  • 1 small red onion, quartered
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus extra for the kale
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 6-8 kale leaves, chopped
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 can garbanzo beans, drained

For the Turmeric Tahini Sauce

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 2-4 tablespoons water
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit 
  • Place the beets, radishes and red onion on a baking sheet lined with foil. Drizzle them with olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss well. 
    Bake for 18 to 20 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and give the vegetables a toss. Push them to one side just enough to make room for the kale. 
  • Drizzle the kale with a little bit of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt. Toss and return to the oven. 
    Roast for 8 - 10 minutes.
  • Assemble individual bowls with the quinoa, vegetables and garbanzo beans. Serve with the Turmeric Tahini Sauce.

To Make the Turmeric Tahini Sauce

  • In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, garlic and turmeric. Add 2 tablespoons of water and mix well. Add more water if you need to thin it out a bit more. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
