Lentil Nourish Bowl with Maple Tahini Dressing

This lentil nourish bowl is loaded with a variety of vegetables and paired with a tasty maple tahini dressing, perfect for an easy yet nourishing meal.

Tahini the star of this recipe. Not only is it bringing the Flavor Factor, but it’s also bringing a ton of nutritional value!

If you’re not familiar with tahini, it’s a condiment made from toasted, ground, hulled sesame. It has a nutty flavor that makes it great for dressings, smoothies, and desserts!

It’s rich in essential vitamins and minerals like magnesium, potassium, iron, calcium, B vitamins, and vitamin E. It’s also a great source of plant-based protein.

Protein

Lentils are some of my favorite plant-based proteins — one cup of lentils contains 18g of protein! They’re versatile, affordable, and delicious.

Tahini is full of protein too containing more than most nuts, which makes you feel fueled and nourished for the rest of the day.

Vitamins & Minerals

This Nourish Bowl is packed with essential vitamins and minerals like B vitamins, vitamin E, magnesium, potassium, folate, copper, phosphorous, iron, and calcium  — just to name a few!
