Trying to add more veggies to your diet? It’s easy when they’re drizzled with dressing this delicious. This 5-minute dressing is packed with nutrients, it’s easy, dairy-free, nut-free, cashew-free, whole foods, vegan, creamy, and oh-so delicious!

This is a rainbow bowl that is fully plant-powered! Each ingredient adds nutrients, minerals, vitamins, and flavor. So add some color to your diet by building a rainbow on your plate.



Assorted colorful veggies, legumes, even grains — we used:

  • Baked sweet potato
  • Baked tofu
  • Roasted Brussels sprouts
  • Cooked quinoa
  • Fresh greens, pea shoots
  • Purple cabbage
  • Chickpeas
  • Cucumber
  • Fresh dragonfruit

For the 5-minute sunflower butter dressing:

  • 1 large tbsp sunflower seed butter
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • At least 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • Water


  1. Mix the sunflower butter and lemon juice.
  2. Thoroughly mix with the rest of the ingredients, adding the water gradually until you get your desired thickness! If you don’t have sunflower butter, you can blend 50g of raw sunflower seeds directly with the other ingredients.
  3. Assemble your ingredients in your bowl, drizzle with your dressing, and enjoy!


The dressing will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.

You can use tahini or even peanut butter instead of sunflower seed butter if you prefer.

You can use any ingredients you have on-hand to make this meal seasonal, delicious, and totally your own: mushrooms sautéed in soy sauce, avocado, kale, corn, beans or lentils, tomato, bell pepper, the list is endless! This is also perfect for using up anything you have prepped or that can be eaten raw.
