Roasted Fall Vegetable Bowl

This post is sponsored by iHerb.

Happy October! With the arrival of Fall, I think it’s time we get into posting lots of cozy, warming, and comforting Autumn recipes. We’re going to dive right in with this Fall Roasted Vegetable Bowl. It’s a great recipe for Fall and early Winter, and especially good for Thanksgiving or Christmas. In this vegan bowl we’ve got a delightful mix of roasted vegetables, some sweet and some savoury. We’ll serve those roasted veggies on a bed of hearty wild and brown rice, and top off the savoury bits with a simple but delicious herb gravy. As for the sweet portion, we’ll adding a sprinkle of crunchy maca-maple cashews.

This Fall Roasted Vegetable bowl is sheet-pan meal inspired, with a twist. While the veggies are roasting in the oven, you’ll steam a blend of wild and brown rice and cook up a quick and savoury vegan gravy. The bowl comes together quickly and easily, just as the roasted veggies are ready to be pulled from the oven.

This bowl offers a lovely variety of flavours from sweet maple roasted vegetables topped with maca-maple cashews and herbed, savoury gravy-topped vegetables on a bed of brown and wild rice.

It’s a simple meal to make but it offers a wide range of flavours and textures. It would be a great all-in-one meal to whip up for small family holiday dinners. (Or if you’re the only vegan attending a non-vegan get-together… Or as a thoughtful meal to make if you invite a vegan to your holiday festivities.)

We used the Turmeric Twist Daily Blend seasoning along with maple syrup and olive oil to season our roasted sweet potatoes, kabocha squash, and parsnips. After roasting them, we topped them with a sprinkle of chopped Maca Maple Cashews for a little crunch. The Herbs de Provence oil, paired with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning was our seasoning for the savoury roasted Brussels sprouts, broccoli, mushrooms, and carrots. We also used those savoury iHerb ingredients to flavour our simple herbed vegan gravy (along with the vegetable bouillon, tamari soy sauce, and nutritional yeast flakes.)
