Dragon Bowls with Sauce

Dragon bowls are a filling, veggie-focused meal with a creamy (dairy-free) sauce. Plus, they're super easy to customize and get creative or use up the ingredients you already have on hand.

Dragon Bowls

  • 3-4 vegetables of choice
  • a cooked grain
  • cooked protein of choice

Dragon Sauce

  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon tahini
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey
  • ¾ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoon water + more to thin if needed
  • salt, to taste


  • Prepare (or pull out) your vegetables, grain, and protein. Assemble in a bowl.
  • Make the sauce by adding all the ingredients to a bowl. Mix with a spoon or fork until smooth.
  • To thin the sauce, add more water 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached. You'll likely need to adjust the salt and pepper as well. Taste as you go.
  • Pour on the sauce, mix, and enjoy!


  • Make extra sauce. No one complains about having leftover sauce. It's great on everything.
  • Get creative. These bowls are a great way to 'play with your food'. Cutting the vegetables into different shapes will also help to create some contrast in the bowl.
  • Avoid using a small bowl. The magic happens when you pour the sauce on and mix all your ingredients together. It's obviously more challenging to do this if your bowl is really small.
