Chipotle Tahini Bowls

52 reviews / 4.9 average

Healthy and versatile bowls that come together under a generous drizzle of addictingly creamy vegan chipotle tahini sauce.

Well, HELLO!

Crisped roasted sweet potatoes, finely chopped and texturally awesome kale, creamy avocado, hearty quinoa, and a 6-minute soft boiled egg – admittedly already an exciting combo in and of itself. But you guys, THAT CHIPOTLE TAHINI. That addictingly creamy, sweet and spicy, pour-it-on-everything chipotle tahini.

That is what we really need to talk about.

These are, after all, Chipotle Tahini Bowls.

How To Make Chipotle Tahini and Be Changed Forever

Okay, first stop: olive oil, salt, tahini, garlic. Basics.

But things stop being basic when we add chipotle peppers and orange juice.

And… that’s pretty much the recipe and I’m not even joking!

These are “bowls,” which are very excellent in that you can kind of just pick your veggies, pick your protein, maybe sorta clean out the fridge (not saying, just saying), cover with a really good sauce such, and voila. BOWLS.

My favorite combo for building a good Chipotle Tahini Bowl:

  • Quinoa
  • Sweet potato (tricks in notes)
  • Kale
  • Avocado
  • Soft-boiled egg (more tricks in notes)

Just try to stop me.

Ingredients for chipotle tahini bowls.

You can eat it hot. You can eat it cold. You can add chicken or tofu. You can go completely vegan or gluten free.

But whatever you do, please do it with a huge spoonful of chipotle tahini on top.

Units Scale

Chipotle Tahini

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 12 chipotles in adobo sauce
  • 1 small clove of garlic
  • juice of 1 orange (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Build the Bowls:

  • Roasted sweet potatoes (see notes for my favorite method!)
  • Soft-boiled eggs (see notes for my favorite method!)
  • Sautéed or massaged kale
  • Quinoa
  • Avocado
  • Anything else you want!


  1. Pulse all sauce ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Season to taste.
  2. Cook / prepare your bowl ingredients. My favorite combination is kale, roasted sweet potato, avocado, quinoa, and soft boiled egg. But I’ve also included chicken, roasted broccoli, etc.
  3. Smother everything in sauce! So good.


My Fave Roasted Sweet Potatoes: Preheat the oven to 450 degrees, and line a pan with parchment. Peel and cube 2-3 large sweet potatoes. Toss with 1 tablespoon cornstarch to coat (helps them stay crispy), and then toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Roast for 20 minutes, gently stir, and roast for another 10-15 minutes. Roasty and brown! Yum!

My Favorite Soft Boiled Eggs: Bring a pot of water to gentle boil (you want enough water to cover eggs by about one inch). Gently add eggs to the water and time for about 6 1/2 minutes. Remove and transfer to a bowl of ice water to cool. Peel, cut, YUM! Those jammy yolks! (For meal prep, I make these ahead, peel, and keep them in the fridge.)

    If I wanted to add tofu or chicken, how would you recommend cooking it with some added flavor?

    1. Pinch of Yum Logo

      Last week I made crispy tofu fried in a pan and smothered it in a soy sriracha sauce and it was SO GOOD. I think it would work well with the chipotle flavours in this recipe but only if you like a solid kick cuz it’ll be flavourtown for sure

        I don’t normally leave comments on recipes- but wow this sauce is amazing!! I’m already trying to think of ways I can use this sauce in other recipes, it’s just that good!

  2. Pinch of Yum Logo

    These look so pretty! I am not a fan of soft boiled (or hard boiled) eggs, but you’ve got my attention with the rest of the bowl. And I love how excited you get about your sauces. I really felt that hair flip.

    Hi!!! I just found your page and I am loving it!!!! I was wondering if u can tell me how to make these bowls Keto? Thanks!

    1. Pinch of Yum Logo


      I am going to make this sauce and substitute lemon or lime for the orange juice to cut back on the sugar content. For the bowl I will do kale, avocado, egg, and a protein with plenty of this sauce drizzled over the top!

  4. Pinch of Yum Logo

    Wow. Just Wow! Everything looks and sounds marvelous. I absolutely LOVE soft boiled eggs and they add such a beautiful touch to this bowl. I’ve definitely gotta try the sauce. That must be beyond amazing. And what’s really great – it is a healthy dish. Thanks a bunch!

    I’m changing my diet ot more softer foods like Tofu, Sea bass, Scallops, boiled eggs, Avocado, and Shrimps.

  6. Pinch of Yum Logo

    This looks sooo good. Definitely going to make it! Just wondering: what do you do with the kale? Just add it raw?

  7. Pinch of Yum Logo

    You are so excited about your sauces, oh god. It’s so nice lol
    Due to your recipe, my dinner was really delicious, thank you.

  8. Pinch of Yum Logo

    Is that 1/2 cup oil accurate? Just seems like a lot relative to the other ingredients. Can’t wait to try!

    1. Pinch of Yum Logo

      I halved the oil (1/4 cup) and it was delicious! I didn’t miss it at all. Love this recipe.

  9. Pinch of Yum Logo

    Hi there! Is the nutritional facts just for the sauce or the whole bowl including other ingredients? 🙂 Thanks!

  10. Pinch of Yum Logo

    Made this tonight and the sauce was amazing! Made the bowls exactly as described and my husband and I loved it. Also loved the tip about adding corn starch to the sweet potatoes to make them crispier.

  12. Pinch of Yum Logo

    This was so delicious! The sweet potatoes came out great with the addition of corn stArch. Always doing it that way now. I also baked the kale into “kale chips” to add some crunch. A keeper for sure. Thanks!
