Since I made this Sprouted Lentil Bowl with Cajun roasted sweet potatoes, i have been dreaming about using the spice blend over other veggies. Hence, this simple roasted veggies bowl. Slice up the veggies of choice, toss in Cajun blend, some nutritional yeast and bake. Serve these delicious veggies in bowls, wraps, tacos with the creamy garlic sauce. Its Easy, Hearty, Smoky, spicy and so Flavorful.
I make my own cajun blend as then it is easier to control the heat, flavor and salt. Store bought spice blends might already have salt so adjust accordingly. Add some sprouted lentils or chickpeas to the mix for a hearty meal. I love this meal without beans for dinner. Once you have the dressing, this is a quick sheet pan dinner.
This garlic sauce is adapted from my book’s white garlic sauce. To make this nut-free use my nut-free garlic sauce from Everyday Kitchen book (Yes, there are nut-free options for almost all sauces and recipes!), or use tahini garlic dressing. Use seasonal veggies of choice and other spice blends such as berbere, baharat(<– so good) and garam masala from the book! If you make this bowl, do let me know how it turned out.
