Directions

Click:

  1. Preheat the oven to 430°F (220°C).
  2. Toss the oil, onion, garlic, sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts in a baking dish or on a baking tray lined with baking paper, and bake on the middle rack of the oven until cooked to your liking, about 40 - 50 minutes, stopping halfway to stir.
  3. Place quinoa and water in a pot. Crush in the bouillon cube, bring to a boil then reduce heat to low, partially cover, and allow to cook for 15 - 20 minutes until liquid is absorbed and the quinoa is al dente.
  4. Add the sauce ingredients to a small food processor and blend (or add to a bowl and whisk) until well combined.
  5. To create your bowl add greens, quinoa, and baked veggies. Sprinkle on the almonds, pomegranate seeds, and cranberries. Drizzle on the sauce and enjoy!

Notes

  • * Speed-it-up: you can speed up this recipe by pan cooking the veggies instead of roasting. Simply cook the onion and garlic in the oil on high heat for about 3 minutes until fragrant, then lower to medium-high, add the sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts with a splash of water, cover with the lid and allow to cook until soft, about 15 - 20 minutes.

Storage

  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to four days.
  • Keep the sauce stored separately for up to 3 days.
