  1. To plate this dish, prepare a base of couscous and lentils in bowls. Top each bowl with greens, zucchini, bell pepper, and onion. Finish each serving with a dollop of hummus, 3 warm falafel, drizzle of dressing, and 2 wedges of warm pita bread.

*To make the Lemon Tahini Dressing:
1 cup (250 mL) tahini, 1 cup (250 mL) water, ½ cup (125 mL) lemon juice, 2 Tbsp (30 mL) canola oil, 1 Tbsp (15 mL) garlic puree

Chef’s Tip:
As a vegan recipe, this concept can be taken to delicious places by simple additions like the sprinkling of nutritional yeast over the bowl to give a cheesy taste that would complement the other components nicely.
