Abundance Bowls with tangy Caper Tahini Sauce are a great way to use up some leftover odds and ends hanging out in your vegetable drawer and the sauce whips up in no time! Inspired by the flavours of caesar dressing, this multi-use sauce goes above and beyond these bowls and makes a great dip, salad dressing, hummus swirl, etc. Bowls are my favourite way to make easy and delicious meals that are beautiful, quick, full of texture and colour, and always make me feel like I really took care to prepare something special with little effort!
The possibilities are really endless when it comes to a hearty base, sauce, and, veggies at their peak! I hope you’re as inspired as I am to get in the kitchen and whip up something super quick and satisfying for you and your loved ones. Hint: make extra of all the bowl components for leftovers… your future self will thank you!
