Bowl Ingredients

Chipotle Lime Tahini Sauce


  1. Prep ingredients: Roast sweet potatoes by sliced or dicing into cubes, tossing with olive oil, and roasting for 40 minutes at 425 degrees F, or 230 degrees C (see our favorite roasted sweet potato recipe here). Meanwhile, cook the quinoa according to package instructions and wilt kale in a large pan with a bit of oil and water for 3-5 minutes until the leaves soften. Crisp the tofu in a large pan over medium heat, cooking for about 15 minutes and flipping to brown all sides evenly.
  2. To cook the beans: add beans to a pan over medium heat and top with chili powder, garlic powder, and a squeeze of lime juice. Cook 3-5 minutes, or until black beans are warm and begin to soften.
  3. To make sauce: add olive oil, tahini, chipotle peppers, garlic, lime juice, and salt to a food processor or blender. Pulse until smooth, adding water until desired consistency. Set aside.
  4. To build bowl: add quinoa, black beans, tofu (if using), sweet potatoes, corn, avocado, and a handful of kale to bowl. Drizzle with chipotle lime tahini sauce and enjoy!
