Vegan Millet Bowl w/ Jalapeño Tahini

Vegan Millet Bowl w/ Jalapeño Tahini | Well and Full | #healthy #vegan #recipe

This vegan millet bowl is full of plant-based goodness, with delicious roasted vegetables and a mouthwatering jalapeño tahini dressing!


This recipe was created in collaboration with Bob’s Red Mill, a brand that I trust and use in my own kitchen. All opinions are my own, and I hope you love this vegan millet bowl!


Hi folks!! I’m back after a week hiatus to bring you a DELISH new recipe out of my brand new kitchen. My fiancé and I just moved, and this is my first recipe post from here! Today I made this vegan millet bowl that really speaks to my own taste and preference. My favorite thing in the world to eat is a buddha bowl, and this recipe checks all my boxes – a grain, some veggies, avocado (of course), and a killer dressing that ties it all together.

For this recipe I used Bob’s Red Mill millet, which came out perfectly fluffy and al dente! I’ve been using Bob’s Red Mill products in my kitchen for years, so when they asked me if I’d like to work with them in 2019, it was a huge YOU BET!! ;) They use high-quality whole grains that can be used for vegan, paleo, or even gluten-free cooking and baking. It means a lot to me to work with products in my kitchen that I know will work out every time, and this millet didn’t disappoint. 


I’m really glad to start off my time in this new house on this note, creating a delicious recipe with a brand that I love and trust. I already feel like a completely different person in this new house. I’ve talked about this on my blog before, but I had a really rough year this past year (and that’s saying A LOT for me). And living where we had lived in the city really set me back in a lot of ways.

But I’m ready to put that all behind me. I’m ready to start living the life that I want to live. And that will include surrounding myself with people who support me and care about me, living and making choices with intention, and cultivating a positive mental attitude about life. So get ready for some great recipes going forward, and some happier blog posts! Stay tuned! ;)

Vegan Millet Bowl w/ Jalapeño Tahini

This vegan millet bowl is full of plant-based goodness, with delicious roasted vegetables and a mouthwatering jalapeño tahini dressing. This recipe makes 2-3 large bowls.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes

Ingredients

Millet

  • 1 Cup Millet
  • 2 Cups Water
  • Pinch of Salt

Jalapeño Dressing

  • 1/3 Cup Tahini
  • 1/3 Cup Water
  • 1 Jalapeño ribs and seeds removed
  • 2 Tbs Fresh Parsley
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt or more to taste
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • Juice from 1/2 a Lemon

Roasted Vegetables

  • 1/2 Head Cauliflower
  • 10-12 Brussels Sprouts
  • 1 Russet Potato
  • Drizzle Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3/4 Tsp Salt
  • 3/4 Tsp Paprika
  • Black Pepper to taste

To Serve

  • Kale
  • Avocados
  • Hemp Seeds

Instructions

Millet

  1. First, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

  2. Then, bring the water, millet, and a pinch of salt to boil in a pot on the stove. Reduce heat to low, and simmer 20-25 minutes or until millet is al dente.

  3. When done, fluff with a fork and set aside.

Roasted Vegetables

  1. First, prep your vegetables - cut the 1/2 cauliflower into florets, cut the brussels sprouts in half, and cut the russet potato into 3/4-inch pieces.

  2. Lay veggies out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and add on a small drizzle of olive oil. Then, add on the salt and spices, and mix with your hands until vegetables are evenly coated.

  3. Bake veggies in the oven for 30-35 minutes.

Jalapeño Dressing

  1. While veggies are roasting, make the dressing.

  2. First, cut the jalapeño in half and remove the ribs and seeds.

  3. Then, add all dressing ingredients into a blender and blend on high until smooth and creamy.

Putting It All Together

  1. Assemble your bowls - add on a layer each of kale, millet, and the roasted veggies. Drizzle with as much of the dressing as you like. Serve with avocado and hemp seeds, if desired.

  2. Enjoy!

    Millet is the best — it is one of the original superfoods, together with avocado, and it was praised long before kale and quinoa got their publicity ;) I really love millet but it seems nowadays it doesn’t get the attention it deserves.

    And again, you’re saying important words here: about living for yourself, getting rid of negativity. I’d been doing yoga for years and hearing “let go of what no longer serves you” at least once a week before I actually understood what it meant. As a result I quit my job and feel so much better for it. Good changes are important :)

      I completely agree with you! I think that millet is super underrated, so I was happy to feature it in this recipe :) And I remember hearing that quite often in yoga too! When my mental health deteriorated, my yoga practice was one of the first things to go :( But I think now that I’m in a better space, it may be beneficial to start up again! :)

    Yay for moving into your new place! I hope this one works out for you guys. I think I remember you saying you had a bunch of issues with the kitchen in the place you moved from. Hopefully this kitchen has much better vibes for you! ;)

    This millet bowl sounds amazing, especially with that jalapeño dressing!

      Thank you so much for your kind note, Sarah! I did have a bunch of issues in my old kitchen but this one is already turning out to be great. Especially since now I finally have a dishwasher ;)

      I definitely feel so much more grounded here! At our old place, it really felt transient – like I knew we weren’t going to stay. But our new home now feels much more permanent :) Thanks for your note, Traci! :)
