Servings: 2 people
Roasted Vegetable Bowl
- 1 cup cooked brown rice
- 1 medium sweet potato
- 1 red onion
- 2 cups broccoli florets
- 1 zucchini
- 2 cups frozen edamame shelled, thawed
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- sea salt; to taste
- black pepper; to taste
- 1 avocado
- 4 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1½ tablespoons maple syrup
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 inch ginger
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 1/4 cup water; start with 2 tablespoons
For the Roasted Vegetables
Preheat Oven to 400°F.
Prepare your vegetables: wash, peel, and chop sweet potatoes in 1 inch cubes; peel and slice onions; wash and cut zucchini in half slices.
Line a large baking sheet with foil. Place sweet potatoes and broccoli florets on the baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper. Roast for 15 minutes or until sweet potato is cooked. Prepare your peanut sauce during this time.
Remove the tray from the oven and set aside the sweet potatoes and broccoli in a bowl or plate.
Use the same baking sheet and place the onions, zucchini, and edamame on the sheet. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper. Cook for about 10 minutes or until vegetables are slightly soft (not soggy).
Remove from oven and prepare your bowl.
For the Peanut Sauce
Add the peanut butter, maple syrup, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and 2 tablespoons of water to a food processor and blend until smooth. Add additional water as needed based on your desired consistency. I usually use ¼ cup of water. (See notes).
Putting it Together
In a serving bowl, add the roasted vegetables and brown rice. Slice some avocado and drizzle (or pour) the peanut sauce over your bowl. Top it with any optional toppings!
Optional Toppings: sesame seeds, pickled cucumbers and carrots, nuts, seeds, scallions, or cilantro!
- This recipe serves about 2 people with a possibility of seconds :) . If you are making this to meal prep for a week, I recommend doubling the recipe for the week!
- If you make the peanut sauce in advance, it will thicken in the fridge so adjust with water according to your desired consistency.
