This is my Roasted Yam (Not-So) Vegan Bowl.
I had found a couple recipes online i wanted to try for vegan bowls, one from Oh She Glows and another from The Lean Clean Eating Machine. The only problem was I had a craving from guacamole and neither of them would do. This is a combination of them with a simple guacamole.
First, I cubed a medium yam, tossed it was 1 tbsp of coconut oil, salt, pepper and italian seasonings (all to taste). Baked that at 400 for 30 mins, tossing every 10 mins.
While that cooked, I sliced some Brussels sprouts (random bag of them I had in my fridge, woot, fridge raid!), tossed them in another tbsp of coconut oil, salt, pepper, and thyme. Baked them at 400 for 10 minutes.
I cooked half a package of quinoa as per the directions, using chicken broth instead of water (thus the not-so vegan).
For the guacamole, I sliced up an avocado, mashed it up, threw in some lime juice, minced garlic, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and salsa. I just played with the amounts until when I did a taste test I wanted to shove it all in my face.
I assembled the bowl by filling a third of the bowl each with the yam, quinoa, and Brussels sprouts, and then putting a generous scoop of guacamole on top. Yum!!!
