Vegan Roasted Veggie Bowl

Vegan Roasted Veggie Bowl // take a megabite

In January I went on a little vegan-eating thing for 3 weeks and really loved it! I like how food-rules (self-induced even) turn into more creativity sometimes! I mean, if I don’t give myself any restraints I end up peanut butter cookies passed around at the bar or all the Cadbury mini eggs. But regardless of all that, this is my current favorite meal. It’s ALL veggies and the sauce has my heart. I feel pretty good about not wasting produce that I get in my Door to Door Organics box too.

This is a solid way to get it all roasty-toasty and delicious for dinner then lunch then dinner again. It’s a high five served up with the best sauce ever, crushed peanuts and quinoa or rice.

So basically this would be GREAT as lettuce wraps*. Maybe just chop things smaller and roast them for less time. Serve up a sliced avocado with it! Maybe add cashews. (Bless you.) Serve it up with rice noodles. This meal is your oyster! But vegan! And it can be anything you want!

* I was going to make this into lettuce wraps, but I bought a cabbage instead on accident?! I guess I don’t know what vegetables are.

Nothing like some roasted veggie bowl love 🙂 I can’t wait to try that sauce – and here’s to not wasting veggies!

I love doing bowls of roast veggies for dinner, so this sounds just down my street and don’t worry – you’re not the first person who’s bought a cabbage instead of a lettuce! *guilty*

It’s been ages since I’ve had roasted veggies because I claim not to be a fan [partly because I’m too lazy/savvy turn on the oven for it] but this looks SO good I might be convinced elsewise.
While I can’t relate to the lettuce incident I have the hardest time telling parsnips and parsley root apart.

try it with the cabbage! i made corned beef the other day for st. patty’s but instead of eating it as a sandwich, i made cabbage reuben wraps — they were so good!

I love this recipe! I’ve been wanting to try these veggie bowls for a while, but I’m quite bad at preparing any on my own, thanks for the recipe! btw wonderful pictures!

Made this with leftover barley (in lieu of rice/quinoa), and was addictive! Simple but flavourful.
