These Spicy Potato Kale Bowls with Mustard Tahini Dressing are the perfect Fall meal. Crispy potatoes, red onion, marinated kale and a delicious creamy dressing. Simple and healthy.
For a second I thought that San Diego was actually going to have a “Fall” this year. It was September and it is was in the 60s during the day. I was wearing sweaters, lighting pumpkin candles…in Fall heaven. But then the clouds parted and we got hit with 80 degree weather again. I know…woe is me. But I was really enjoying that cool weather.
Well, at least we can still pretend it is cold out by making some Fall meals. Yesterday, I shared the first soup recipe of the season – Vegan Enchilada Soup. And today we are whipping up one of my favorite go-to dinners. Spicy Potato Kale Bowls with Mustard Tahini Dressing!
To start these off, we will roast some potatoes with red onion, bell pepper and jalapeño – all seasoned to perfection.
While the potatoes are roasting, we will make the dressing and get our kale nice and marinated.
This dressing is a slight deviation from another one of my recipes – The Best Tahini Dressing. Which according to some of your reviews, was just too tart. I guess I like a vinegar-heavy dressing, because it is my favorite dressing, like, ever. BUT, to accommodate everyone’s palate I have dialed back the vinegar in this dressing. As with everything, taste as you go and adjust to your liking.
To marinate your kale, drizzle some lemon juice over the chopped kale and get to massaging. Make love to your kale. With your hands, that is. This will make it nice and soft and super easy to eat.
Once the potatoes are nice and crispy, and the veggies are soft, sprinkle them with some salt and assemble your bowls.
Layer the marinated kale, raw red onions and the roasted potatoes in some bowls and top them off with that mustard tahini dressing.
This meal is like Fall in a bowl. So no matter what the weather is like, we can at least eat our way through the season.
