Maple Tahini Grain Bowl

Would it be Fall if we didn’t include roasted veggies like red potato, carrot and brussels sprouts? The answer is “NOPE”. This is the epitome of a kick-ass buddha bowl. It includes a rainbow of flavors and nutrients - all thrown into a bowl. ‘Cause vegan food is always in a bowl it seems…

Anyway, the highlight of this dish is the tahini maple dressing. Simply roast, assemble, drizzle, devour. And repeat, for as many dinners as your little meal-planning heart desires.

 

Optional: add any protein you have on hand - chicken, salmon, etc.
