Harvest Quinoa Bowls

Every autumn I crave hearty bowls of fresh foods, this lead me to making my Harvest Quinoa Bowls.

If we don’t have all the ingredients to make these bowls, we always keep some of the tahini dressing on hand to add to salads or chicken, sometimes we use it as a dip for veggies and pretzels.

These bowls are filled with tons of fresh veggies like yellow squash, zucchini, red onion, arugula, and sweet potatoes. Feel free to swap out items as you choose but we do recommend a good mix of hearty things like sweet potatoes or butternut squash and lighter veggies like zucchini or peppers. Pair these with some leafy greens, we chose arugula because the bitterness and tahini dressing are perfect with one another. However, another great alternative would be kale or even just spinach. To get a bit of extra healthy proteins we like to roast up some chickpeas with seasoning and add them on top. All of these fresh ingredients on top of quinoa brings these Harvest Quinoa Bowls to life! If you like this recipe, you’d love our Healthy Mediterranean Bowls!

Tahini Dressing

If you haven’t used tahini in recipes or made a dressing of it, you are missing out. Paired with a bit of sweetness like honey, tahini turns into a really creamy delicious dressing or even dip and we can’t get enough of it on our Harvest Quinoa Bowls. We like to double this batch and save some for snacking. The dressing will stay good for about a week to ten days after making it but make sure to store the dressing in the fridge. Try it out with the recipe above, but feel free to add extra garlic or honey depending on your preference.
