Wine Pairings by @grapefriend

Try a New Zealand Gewürztramine! The creaminess of the avocado dressing needs a spicy floral noted wine.

TK Table Talk:

How would you describe yourself to someone who has never met you?

What To Do:

1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a baking tray with foil. Zest half of the lime. Cut lime in half.

2. Roast Chickpeas and Onions: Dry chickpeas. Directly on half of the baking tray, toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil, paprika, brown sugar and ½ teaspoon salt. Spread evenly. On the other half of the tray, spread out red onion and toss with ¼ teaspoon oil and ¼ teaspoon salt. Roast for 20 minutes, shaking pan every 5 minutes.

3. Cook Rice: In a small saucepan, over high heat, bring 1¼ cups water and ¼ teaspoon salt to a boil. Stir in rice and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 15 minutes. Turn of heat and let sit, covered for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and gently stir in sesame oil and half of the lime zest.

4. Make Dressing: In a blender add the avocado, juice from half the lime, ¼ cup water, ½ teaspoon salt and pinch of pepper. Blend. Continue blending and adding water if necessary (1 tablespoon at a time) until dressing reaches a thin milk shake consistency. Salt and pepper to taste.

To Serve: Into two bowls, add ingredients in sections: rice, sugar snap peas, arugula and roasted red onion. Squeeze remaining lime juice over and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add seasoned chick peas and drizzle all with avocado dressing (or serve dressing on the side).

Pro Tip:

A “Buddha Bowl” got its name because it’s a bowl of food packed so full it has a rounded “belly” appearance on the top like the belly of a Buddha.


Sure, our TK food containers are recyclable, but we’d rather you upcycle them first. We’re partial to using them to sprout our garden seeds, but we’d love to see how creative you are! Tag us in your photos with @terraskitchen and #terraskitchen.
