TAHINI MISO GINGER DRESSING
1/2 cup Tahini
1 Tbsp Miso
1 Tbsp Honey or Agave or Maple Syrup
2 tsp Braggs aminos
1 inch Ginger, chopped fine
2 Garlic Cloves
squirt of sriracha (optional)
1/4 or 1/2 cup water depending on desired thickness
Roast, steam or saute a bunch of rad veggies, don’t be shy, live it up! I roasted Yam, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Beet, and Squash cuz I was feeling ambitious today. (NOTE: broccoli and cauliflower only take half the time and also higher temperature so I roasted them for the last 25 minutes at 425 F, flipping once)
Sauteed cabbage tips and kale, adding 1/2 tsp of veggie boullion or to taste, and dash of water to mix it in. Turn off the burner then add spinach so nicely wilts from remaining heat. Feel free to omit this step just add fresh spinach.
For the noodles I diced fresh cucumber, spring onion, cilantro, tossing it with buckwheat soba noodles and dressing.
To assemble the final plate I put noodles in, placed greens in half the bowl, roasted veggies in other half, drizzled some more dressing on top, added pea shoots and BOOM! power meal. Leaves you full and feeling great for hours.
Fresh squeezed orange juice, banana, frozen raspberry, ice and cacau nibs
