How to cook
Gather and portion ingredients
Set oven to 375 degrees.
Preheat oven to 375 F and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Or use an air fryer.
Remove the cauliflower stem and cut bite sized florets.
Chop the carrots into 1/2" half rounds. Place in the bowl with the cauliflower florets.
Pour the olive oil over the veggies and add the cumin.
Add the turmeric, salt, and pepper.
Toss carrots and cauliflower until evenly coated, then spread out on an oven tray. Pop the vegetables into the oven to roast. This should take about 20 minutes. If using the air fryer, set it to 390 F and cook it for 10 minutes.
Tear the kale off the stem and break into bite sized pieces.
Drizzle with olive oil and massage the kale so it becomes softer.
Stir thoroughly until the dressing is smooth and well-incorporated.
To make the dressing, combine the tahini, honey, apple cider vinegar, and sesame oil.
Warm up the rice according to package instructions, and divide between 4 bowls. Portion the roasted turmeric cauliflower and carrots, massaged kale, and edamame evenly across the bowls.
Drizzle the dressing over each bowl and serve immediately!
