Start by cooking quinoa. In a saucepan add 1 cup quinoa to 2 cups water. Bring to a boil then reduce heat, add turmeric and pinch sea salt, and simmer for 12-15 minutes or until cooked and pillowy.
Divide quinoa, edamame, zucchini, carrots, beetroot, avocado and cucumber between four Coconut Bowls. Divide hummus between each bowl.
Prepare dressing: In a small bowl, add 1/4 cup tahini, the juice of 2 limes, finely chopped garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Whisk to combine. Add splashes of water as desired for thinning, I used about 2 tablespoons. Drizzle over buddha bowls and serve.
