Directions

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil and add sweet potato. Cook 5-10 minutes or until potato is just tender. Timing will depend on the size of the cubes.
  2. In a separate pan, heat oil until it shimmers and add the onion, mushrooms and kale. Saute until soft, about 5 minutes, then strain sweet potatoes and add to the pan. Add garlic powder and ½ teaspoon of salt and sauté for another 2 minutes.
  3. In a bowl, combine the chickpeas, chili powder, paprika, cumin, pepper and ½ teaspoon of salt and toss until chickpeas are evenly coated. Warm in a pan over low or medium-low heat.
  4. Prepare the dressing by whisking together the tahini, vinegar, hot sauce, remaining ½ teaspoon salt (plus more to taste), and hot sauce in a bowl or jar.
  5. Divide warm brown rice, chickpeas and vegetables between two serving bowls, top with tahini dressing and cilantro and serve warm.
