Ingredients

2 tablespoons avocado oil (divided)

3 cups cubed butternut squash (415 grams)

3 medium parsnips, peeled and cubed (2 heaping cups/270 grams)

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 large beet, peeled and cubed (2 cups/275 grams)

1/2 teaspoon cumin

6 cups packed kale, roughly chopped (180 grams)

1/3 cup walnuts (roughly chopped)

1/3 cup dried cranberries

1 small avocado, sliced (100 grams)

salt and pepper, to taste

additional add-ons: quinoa, chickpeas, roasted chicken, goat cheese…

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4-1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

salt and pepper, to taste

Vegan Tahini Dressing

2 tablespoons tahini

2 tablespoons coconut amino

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line 1-2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

Roast the veggies. Mix butternut squash, parsnips, 1 tablespoon avocado oil, garlic powder, and salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Place on baking sheet, making sure veggies are spread out evenly. In the same bowl, add beets, 1/2 tablespoon avocado oil, cumin, salt, and pepper, and combine. Place on the same baking sheet or another one if more room is needed. Roast for 35-40 minutes until soft and fork tender.

While the vegetables roast, place kale in a bowl and massage with 1/2 tablespoon avocado oil and a pinch of salt and pepper until leaves become tender and soft.

Make the dressing. Mix all ingredients into a bowl and whisk to combine. Add a little water if you want a thinner consistency or more tahini if you want it thicker.

When the veggies are done, assemble the bowls. Divide kale, roasted veggies, walnuts, cranberries, and avocado between 3 bowls. Top with dressing and enjoy!
