2 tablespoons Sir Kensington’s Honey Mustard
2 cloves garlic
1 small yellow onion, diced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
1/3 -1/2 cup all-purpose flour (gluten free as needed)

1 red onion, sliced
2 red bell peppers, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 cups chopped kale
2 cups cooked tri color or white quinoa

Salt to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Microwave the sweet potato for about 5 minutes or peel and chop into small cubes and boil until tender. Once cooked, mash and measure out 1 cup worth.
  3. Add to a food processor along with all remaining falafel ingredients, making sure to drain and rinse the chickpeas.
  4. Process until well combined and it looks like a thick paste. If the mixture looks too wet, just add more flour.
  5. Taste and adjust flavors as desired.
  6. Use a cookie scoop or a spoon and form into balls or patties.
  7. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown, flipping halfway through.
  8. Meanwhile, add the sliced onion and bell pepper to a skillet with 1 tbsp of olive oil.
  9. Saute for 5-7 minutes or until the onion starts to look translucent.
  10. Add in the minced garlic and saute an additional 2-3 minutes. Add in the chopped kale and cook just until wilted.
  11. Finally, whisk together all ingredients for the dressing.
  12. Assemble the bowls with a base of quinoa, then add the sauteed veggies, falafel, avocado and drizzle with the lemon mayo dressing.
