  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil (divided)
  • 3 cups cubed butternut squash (415 grams)
  • 3 medium parsnips, peeled and cubed (2 heaping cups/270 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 large beet, peeled and cubed (2 cups/275 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 6 cups packed kale, roughly chopped (180 grams)
  • 1/3 cup walnuts (roughly chopped)
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 small small avocado, sliced (100 grams)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • additional add ons: quinoa, chickpeas, roasted chicken, goat cheese...

Vegan Tahini Dressing


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line 1-2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Roast the veggies. In a medium bowl mix together butternut squash, parnships, 1 tablespoon avocado oil, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. Place on baking sheet making sure veggies are spread out evenly. In the same bowl add beets, 1/2 tablespoon avocado oil, cumin, and salt and pepper and mix to combine. Place on same baking sheet or another one if more room is needed. Roast for 35-40 minutes until soft and fork tender
  • While the vegetables roast, place kale in a bowl and massage with 1/2 tablepsoon avocado oil and a pinch of salt and pepper until leaves become tender and soft.
  • Make the dressing. Mix all ingredients into a bowl and whisk to combine. Add a little water if you want a thinner consistency or more tahini if you want it thicker.
  • When veggies are done assemble the bowls. Divide kale, roasted veggies, walnuts, cranberries, and avocado between 3 bowls. Top with dressing and enjoy!


Try to get the butternut squash, parsnips, and beets in uniform shapes to ensure even cooking. I find the parsnips and beets take a little longer, so I usually cut those a little smaller.
