quinoa dragon bowls with peanut sauce

quinoa satay dragon bowls

Yum! Tonight I whipped up the most fabulous peanut-y satay sauce and it was the perfect addition to some quinoa, tofu, veggie bowls. I wish I had thought to make a cold peanut satay style sauce before now! This stuff is fabulous, I will certainly make this again and again.

These dragon bowls were constructed with:

Cooked quinoa

A quick fry of: onion, chards stocks and then chard greens which were lightly seasoned with lemon juice, olive oil salt and garlic.

Chili tamari seared tofu (spiced dry along with S+P then golden fried on all sides)

A good clipping of our window box microgreens

Some avocado slices

A garnish of cilantro

And of course a good dollop of this great peanut sauce:

Spicy Peanut Tahini Satay Sauce:

This sauce was pretty thick, if you wanted to use it more as salad dressing, I would add more oil and lemon juice, just taste it to ensure the flavors are balanced.

In a food processor combine until smooth and creamy:

1/2 small yellow onion

2 cloves of garlic

3 heaping Tbsp tahini

1 heaping Tbsp Peanut Butter

2 Tbsp (or more) lemon or lime juice

2-4 Tbsp olive oil

chili flakes + cayenne as much or as little as you like

S+P to taste

  1. This recipe is really delicious and you are so right, the tahini sauce is fabulous. I’ve made it twice this week and have become just a little bit obsessed with it. Lol.
