1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Arrange carrots, cauliflower florets, and beets in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet (use two baking sheets if needed). Toss vegetables with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt, and ground black pepper to taste. Roast for 25 to 35 minutes or until vegetables are caramelized and tender when pierced with a fork.
2. While the vegetables roast, cook the quinoa, saute the kale, and make the dressing.
a. Combine dry quinoa and bone broth in a medium saucepan set over medium-high heat. Bring mixture to a boil, then cover the saucepan and reduce heat t
medium-low. Simmer for 15 minutes, then remove from the heat and fluff the quinoa with a fork.
b. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the sliced garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes. Add the kale and cook until wilted.
c. In a small bowl or jar, combine tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, honey, water, and dijon mustard. Season with salt and ground black pepper to taste. Set aside.
3. To assemble the bowls, place approximately ¾ cup of cooked quinoa in 4 bowls. Divide the roast vegetables and kale between the bowls. Top each bowl with ¼ cup chickpeas, 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts, and 2 tablespoons dressing.
