With Thanksgiving coming up I thought I’d share a dish that’s decidedly not Thanksgivingy. A dish that requires minimal effort, minimal dishes, and therefore is perfect for that after-Thanksgiving food hangover you’re gonna have on Friday. Roasted Vegetable Buddha Bowls!

For a vibrant yet easy vegan dinner, these Roasted Vegetable Buddha Bowls do the trick, packed with colorfully delicious flavors and drizzled with creamy, protein-packed Yum Sauce!

Roasted sweet potato and spiced chickpeas make up the base of these Buddha bowls, helping to make them ultra-filling and full of flavor. Fresh kale and pomegranate add some crunchy freshness. But my favorite part of these bowls? The beet pearl couscous!

When we were in Greece last month we ate a bright pink couscous that was the stuff of dreams. It was subtly beety with lemon juice and salt, and did I mention bright pink? So I whipped up an easy variation with shredded raw red beet and pearl couscous to be the healthy grain portion of these Buddha Bowls.

And because no Buddha bowl is complete without a killer sauce, we’re topping it with our Vegan Yum Sauce, a high-protein unlikely combination of ingredients that’s ultra-creamy and full of flavor!
