Roasted Veggie Quinoa Bowls

‘Sup guys! Today I’m posting a simple solution to hectic mornings- Roasted Veggie Quinoa Bowls! They’re delicious, healthy and easy to make the night before so you can catch a few more minutes of sleep;) Plus, there’s so many different combos of veggies that you can make them your own.

Ingredients:

  • Different kinds of veggies of your choice; ex. Cauliflower, chickpeas (I know that chickpeas are legumes but whatever, they work and I’m addicted to them), peppers, onions, carrots, zucchini, broccoli, etc.
  • Olive/Avocado oil (1 1/2 tsp per cup of veggies)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic powder (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Cut your veggies into manageably sized pieces, like the picture above. Place them on  a parchment lined baking sheet.
  3. Put the appropriate amount of oil on the veggies and toss until coated. I used too much oil when I did this and ended up having to wipe a bunch off, so make sure you use a measuring spoon! I would’ve used about 2 teaspoons for the cauliflower, 1 1/2 for the peppers and 1 for everything else based on the photo above.
  4. Once your veggies are tossed in oil, sprinkle with a bit of salt, pepper and garlic powder if you’re using it. I wouldn’t go too crazy with spices, because this recipe is supposed to be very versatile so you can pair it with different sauces.
  5. Put the sheet in the 400 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes, but keep an eye on the veggies. You want them to be soft, but still have a bit of bite to them.
  6. Once the veggies are done, cool and store in an airtight container in the fridge. Serve over quinoa by itself or with one of the following sauces:

 

Soy, garlic and honey:

Mix together 2 tbs soy sauce, 1 clove of garlic, and 1/2 tsp honey.

 

Tzatziki:

Mix 1/4 cup greek yogurt, 1 clove of garlic, 1 tbs lemon juice, and 1 tsp dill.

 

There you go:) Meal prep made healthy, easy, and delicious! Comment if you’ve found a delicious veggie combo or another sauce that works great with these bowls.

 

Yours Truly, MyDayIsBooked;)
