Roasted Winter Vegetable


Roasted Winter Vegetable and Pesto Quinoa Bowl

The concept is simple, fill a bowl with healthy quinoa. Next layer roasted veggies of your choice. Next, top with a fried egg and a spoon full of prepared pesto. Or, homemade pesto if you have it. Sometimes, I squirt Sriracha over everything when I’m feeling a little sassy.

Remember in season veggies taste better, are cheaper, and usually, retain more nutrients than produce that has been picked green and shipped to your market. I used cauliflower and Brussel sprouts grown organically and local. This recipe is highly adaptable to any vegetable.

Roasted Winter Vegetable and Pesto Quinoa Bowl would be great for breakfast, lunch, or a lighter dinner. Additionally, they make great use of leftovers.

Hearty and flavorful, a bowl of roasted veggies and quinoa is full of goodness. Along with being healthy, wholesome, and nutritionally complete!

What is Quinoa?

Quinoa is a plant. The part we eat is the seed — it’s not a grain. It grows from a plant in the goosefoot family, which also produces edibles such as chard and spinach.

Quinoa a complete protein. This means it contains all nine of the essential amino acids which cannot be made by the body and therefore must come from food. Quinoa is also naturally gluten-free.
