Ingredients


bowl:

1 sweet potato (I usually roast the entire thing then decide to use 1/2 or whole depending on how hungry I am, having half a sweet potato in the fridge already roasted is heaven)

2 handfuls kale

1/4 onion

1 handful of broccolini

1 zucchini

1/2 avocado

avocado oil**

+ any seasonal veggie you love & would like to add!!

optional seasoning: cracked pepper, smoked paprika, red cayenne pepper


**you can use whatever oil you would like, I just prefer avo oil because it has a high smoke point. oils like olive or vegetable oil have low smoke points and when they go past those temps, they can generate toxins and free radicals that are unhealthy for your body.


sauce:

1/4 cup tahini

2-3 tbsp maple syrup

+ tbsps of water for desired consistency


Directions


Heat oven to 400 degrees. First, cut your sweet potato in half or into cubes. Drizzle sweet potato with avocado oil (any oil, avo oil just has a high smoke point, or sub water if avoiding oils) lay flat on baking sheet and put into oven.


Bake for about 20 minutes.


While sweet potato is baking, go ahead and cut up all your other veggies! Add veggies to the baking sheet and drizzle with oil and add seasoning (pepper, paprika, cayenne, etc).


Bake for about 10 minutes.


While veggies are roasting, start boiling some water (for your tahini sauce) in a pot and put kale (instead of cutting my kale, I just like to rip it up into small pieces with my hands) in a bowl and drizzle with oil and massage. Massage for about a minute then add to baking sheet and add seasoning.


Bake for about 5 minutes.


While all your amazing veggies are roasting, begin concocting your delicious tahini sauce, the ultimate topping. Mix tahini and maple syrup together and add tablespoons of hot water (start with 2 tbsp) until desired consistency is accomplished. Keep stirring the entire time.





Remove all your beautifully roasted veggies from the oven and transfer into serving bowl. Slice some avocado or any other topping you would like to add. Drizzle with tahini sauce.


Violà! The ultimate quick but delicious dinner!


Enjoy.
