I really enjoyed the combination of brown rice, kale, avocado and lentils (but beans would be equally good), but I found the dressing lacking a little punch, so I added 2 garlic cloves, very finely crushed, a bit of freshly squeezed orange juice and a few drops of siracha. Then, it was absolutely delicious !

I thought this was heavy on tahini and light on lemon, unless you really like the taste of tahini.

Chili pepper of some kind, better than black.
