Bomb Buddha Bowls with Turmeric Tahini Dressing

Have you ever had a meal that you want to keep eating over and over again?  This is that meal for me.  If you do nothing else, please make this dressing and pour it over your favorite salad.  It's so good.  And can you say anti-inflammatory turmeric and sooo good for you?

You can use any raw veggies, roasted veggies, grain/noodles.  This is recipe you can make your own with the toppings that you love. You can roast chickpeas, marinate and roast tofu, grill some wild salmon for on top.  Customize this to what you love.  I hope you enjoy it!

TIP: Cook once, eat several times!  Make extra of everything!  I left the quantity of veggies you prep up to you.  I love to make lots of extras.  Store extras in glass containers in the fridge and you have a quick weeknight meal or lunches for work.
