This is the kind of vegetable bowl that you will want to eat everyday for lunch! Making a whole batch of roasted vegetables is super easy and is great to do before the workweek. All you have to do is put everything into a bowl and eat it when you’re ready! Healthy meal prepping has never been this easy. I topped this roasted vegetable & grain bowl with a lemon & honey tahini dressing. This bowl is nutritious and satisfying at the same time.  Another great thing about this recipe is that you can use whatever vegetables you like! Feel free to use broccoli, zucchini, eggplant, etc. Roasting is all the same, but times may vary for each vegetable.
