magic rice & bean bowl

This is our new favorite dinner. I make brown rice with frozen organic corn then set up lots of toppings and everyone can make their own customized bowl. The toppings include sauteed tofu, black beans, tomatoes, shredded carrots, sprouts, cilantro, and avocado.

We will sometimes add salsa or I will make a super yummy sauce that we will add.

Once everyone has made their bowl exactly how they want, then the yummy bowls magically disappear.

I think the sauce is key. It’s zesty and creamy and so good when combined with all the other ingredients. Here is the magic sauce recipe:

3 tbsp tahini
juice from 1 lemon
1/4 -1/2 roasted red pepper from a jar
1 garlic clove
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp turmeric
salt to taste

Combine everything in a blender and whiz together until smooth. Yum!
