Salad Ingredients: 

  • 1 Head of Cauliflower – Broken into florets
  • 1 Can Chickpeas – Rinsed and drained
  • 1 Sweet Potato – Cubed
  • 1 Cup Quinoa – Cooked
  • 1 Apple – Chopped
  • Sprinkle Turmeric

Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1 Handful Fresh Basil
  • 1 Handful Fresh Parsley
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • 2 TBSP Olive OIl
  • 1 TBSP Nutritional Yeast
  • Salt to Taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. Cut florets of 1 head of cauliflower. Spray lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with turmeric and paprika. Place on a lined baking sheet. Add one can of drained chickpeas, sprayed lightly with olive oil.
  3. Wash and cut 1 sweet potato into 1-inch cubes. Spray lightly with olive oil and add to a 2nd line baking sheet.
  4. Place both baking sheets in the oven and roast veggies for 45 minutes turning halfway through.
  5. While they’re roasting prepare one cup of quinoa per package directions
  6. Now it’s time to make the dressing: Add 2 hands full of fresh herbs to a food processor. I used basil and parsley. Then add the juice of one lemon, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  7. Process until smooth and add more olive oil as desired and add salt to taste
  8. Once all your components are completed let them cool, add to your pop bowls with 1/4 chopped apple (this recipe made 4 bowls). Save in the fridge until you’re ready to use, pop, dress, shake and enjoy!
