Prep Time:
Cook time: 30 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes
Yield: 2 servings
Ingredients
  • 2 Small Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 1/2 Large Red Beets
  • 1/2 cup Quinoa
  • 1/2 cup Brown lentils
  • 3/4 tsp Vegetable Stock Powder
  • 1/2 Large Cucumber
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 2 TBSP Tahini

Directions

1. Put the quinoa and lentils in a pot with 2 ½ cups water, bring to a boil, then lower heat again and simmer with a lid on until they’re done.
2. Wash the potatoes and red beets, peel the red beets, and then chop everything into small cubes.
3. Set the veggies in a pot with some water (just enough to cover the bottom!), cover with a lid, and cook until they’re soft.
4. In a blender, combine the cucumber, garlic and tahini and blend.
5. In each bowl, mix 1- 1 ½ cup of the quinoa-lentil mix, half of the vegetables, and half of the dressing. Enjoy!

Notes: You might have leftover lentils and quinoa – if you do, no big deal! It’s perfect served warm or cold, tossed on salads and just about anything else 🙂
