Ingredients for the Bowl

  • black bean spaghetti
  • 1 avocado
  • 6 small sweet peppers or a couple bell peppers
  • 2 handfulls of greens (tender micro greens or baby spinach)
  • 1 shallot or some green onions
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • fresh ginger
  • 1 small chili pepper or jalapeño
  • cilantro

Ingredients for the Dressing

  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 tablespoon miso
  • 1 tablespoon tamari, liquid aminos or soy sauce
  • juice of half a lemon
  • fresh ground pepper


Cook the black bean spaghetti according to instructions on the bag. They only need 6 to 7 minutes to cook and they’re done. While the noodles are boiling, finely chop the garlic, ginger and hot pepper of your choice and quickly toss in a pan with a little bit of your favorite high heat oil. This only takes about 2 to 3 minutes, you don’t want it to get too brown.

Rinse and drain the spaghetti and cut up the veggies. Combine the ingredients for the dressing in a glass or jar and just stir it all up. If the dressing is too thick, add a little water.

Assemble all the ingredients in a bowl, top with dressing and the crispy garlic, ginger and jalapeño bits.
