  • 1 small sweet potato
  • 1 medium beet
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 cups brussels sprouts, halved
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 small avocado, sliced
  • 1 cup cooked farro
  • sesame seeds (optional)

For Turmeric Tahini Sauce:

  • Tahini sauce:
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. Wash sweet potato and pierce with a fork in several places. Wrap tightly in foil. Wash beet and wrap tightly in foil. Place both in the oven and bake 30-45 minutes or until soft. Remove from oven. Once cool enough to handle, cut into cubes.
  3. In a small nonstick skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add brussels sprouts and cook, stirring, until bright green and crispy on the outside, 5-8 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, bring water to a boil in a small saucepan if using eggs. Gently place eggs in the water and boil gently for 6 minutes. Drain and place eggs into an ice water bath to stop the cooking. Once cooled, carefully peel and cut in half right before placing in the bowls.
  5. To make the sauce, whisk together all sauce ingredients until smooth or blend in a blender.
  6. Divide farro between two bowls. Add sweet potatoes, beets, and brussels sprouts. Top each bowl with avocado, one egg, and a drizzle of turmeric tahini sauce. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  7. Bowls can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for healthy prepped lunches.
