  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Roasted Garlic Dressing:

  1. Use a knife to slice off the top third of the head of garlic, just enough so that all of the cloves are exposed but the head remains intact.

  2. Fill a small ovenproof saucepan with the olive oil and place the garlic bulb, cut side down, in the oil. Cover the pan with a lid and transfer to the oven.

  3. Bake for 40 minutes, until the garlic has softened and is easily pierced with a paring knife. Let cool.

  4. Once the garlic and oil have cooled enough to handle, squeeze the cloves out of the garlic skin into a blender.

  5. Add the salt, pepper, water, lemon juice, and mustard to the blender. Puree until smooth.

  6. With the blender still running, slowly add the oil from the saucepan in a steady stream. The dressing should be a creamy and slightly thick. Set aside.

Buddha Bowl:

  1. In a medium bowl, season the chicken with turmeric, onion powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Toss until evenly coated.

  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the pan and sauté for about 4 minutes until firm and cooked through. Remove the pan from the heat.

  3. Divide the rice between 2 serving bowls. Top with shredded cabbage, sliced avocado, turmeric chicken, shredded carrots, halved cherry tomatoes, and green onions and drizzle with roasted garlic dressing.

  4. Serve and enjoy!
