You can really get creative with the vegetables you use here, which is why this is a favorite go-to meal of mine. Roasting vegetables is the equalizer of the kitchen. Few things are not delectable when roasted, smothered in olive oil, salt, and lemon. Another great note about using olive oil – you don’t need to line your baking sheet with parchment paper. No need to make extra waste! Woo!
I topped this with avocado, which yes, is not local to the PNW, but avocado is one of a few staples in my kitchen that I will make an exception for. We want our approach to zero-waste / low-impact cooking to be manageable, not to make us give up everything we used to love. I’ve given paper towels the boot and decided avocados will help me maintain sanity. It’s always a compromise.
This is an awesome recipe to meal prep with. You can make everything ahead of time and heat + serve during the week with no prep time! Not to mention using up old produce and meal prep is how you unconsciously level up into adulthood and before you know it you’re gathering your 2019 tax materials? How did this happen? Probably the magic of this Use-It-Up Roasted Buddha Bowl!

Anything that is full of colorful veggies, I am down for. This recipe looks amazing.
Always in need of colorful veggies! Thanks Alyssa 😀
This bowl looks fabulous!!! Hello dinner!
Thanks Jana!! (And hello lunch the next day :D)
I’m with you – I make a big pan of roasted veggies once a week, then eat off it for leftovers! My go-to veggies are carrots, sweet potatoes, onions and peppers.
Oooh yes. That’s a great combo!
This looks like the perfect easy dinner to use up leftovers!
Thanks Erin! Always happy to use up leftovers 🙂
Yummmm. Roasted winter veggies, yes please! Looks like a gorgeous bowl and a great way to use up leftover odds and ends.
Thanks Waz! Definitely one of my favs 😀
I also love to seek out the most colorful winter produce. It makes a meal not only more appetizing, but just provides so much good flavor. You’re totally right that there are few things that aren’t made more delicious by roasting also. This bowl looks absolutely delicious!
We are all about roasted veggies this time of year! I love how it draws out all those deep, warm, sweet flavors from the produce.
