Jamaican Jerk Protein Bowl

Packed with colorful, plant-based proteins, this Jamaican Jerk Protein Bowl is simple to make and filled with flavor. I love to make this for lunch with whatever leftovers I have in the fridge and top it with a creamy sauce made with FreshJax Island Spice. You can switch out the veggies for your favorites or try different combinations.


  • cooked quinoa
  • shredded carrots
  • steamed broccoli
  • black beans
  • sliced avocado
  • 1/4 cup tahini (sesame seed paste)
  • 2 Tbsp ume plum vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tsp FreshJax Island Spice
  • hemp seeds


  1. Arrange quinoa, carrots, broccoli, black beans, and avocado in a bowl.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together tahini, ume plum vinegar, lemon juice, water, and Island Spice.
