  • 2 cups beans I used a sprouted bean mix
  • 2 cups brown rice
  • 4 cups veggie broth (to boil rice) can sub water
  • 1 bunch kale swiss chard or spinach (or a mix)
  • 2 spring onions
  • 24 ounces purple potatoes or any potato you prefer
  • 1 avocado
  • lemon pepper to taste
  • veggie broth or your favorite oil if you use oil to roast veggies
  • BBQ Tahini Sauce


  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Wash and cut potatoes into small wedge pieces. Drizzle with veggie broth (or oil), salt and lemon pepper. Bake on a parchment lined cookie sheet for 20-25 minutes until crispy.
  • Wash and coarsely chop kale/chard/spinach. Wash and chop spring onion. Saute all in a large pan with a little veggie broth (or oil if you are using it), salt and lemon pepper until greens are just wilted. Remove from heat when they begin to turn bright green.
  • Cook rice with veggie broth or water according to package directions. Cook beans according to package directions if they are not cooked.
  • Make sauce according to recipe.
  • Arrange meal by putting it all into a bowl, in a side by side fashion. Place about 1/4 cup BBQ Tahini Sauce into center, you may use more or less sauce for your preference.


  • Any beans you enjoy work here, I like a variety of beans so I used a mix. You can use cooked or raw beans, if raw just cook them before.
  • You can sub quinoa or even farro for the brown rice. We tried it all and it all worked great.
  • You will have left over sauce, but it is so versatile it can be used for so much.
  • Tips to prep ahead: Wash and chop all the veggies beforehand. Make the sauce. All you have to do the day of is cook rice and veggies.
