A classic, everyday bowl packed with flavor, fresh ingredients, and nutrition. Made with massaged kale, sauteed spicy chickpeas, savory roasted potatoes, tomatoes, pomegranate seeds, and a drizzle of lemon-tahini dressing, this is a great bowl to eat when you’re in the mood for something simple and delicious.
Preheat oven to 425F. In a bowl, combine the cubed sweet potatoes, 1 tablespoon of oil, salt, and pepper. Toss until the potatoes are well coated in oil. On a baking sheet, lay the sweet potatoes on a single layer. Bake for 30 minutes, flipping halfway.
Prepare the chickpeas. In a medium pan, warm the oil on medium heat. Add the chickpeas, ground cumin, ground turmeric, paprika powder, sea salt, and pepper. Toss until the chickpeas are well coated. Cook for about 10 minutes and set aside.
Make the tahini dressing. In a bowl, combine the tahini, extra-virgin olive oil, water, lemon juice, sea salt, maple syrup and cayenne pepper. Using a whisk or spoon, stir the ingredients until you have a smooth and creamy mixture. Feel free to add more water if until you get to the desired consistency.
Massage the kale. In a bowl, add the kale. With your hands, slowly massage the oil into the kale for about 3 minutes. Season with salt, if desired.
Assemble the bowls. Divide the kale, chickpeas, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, pomegranate seeds between the two bowls. Drizzle with the lemon-tahini dressing. Serve with additional dressing.
