The best thing about bowls is they can be custom-built so  you can make them as healthy as you like!

Ingredients:

Bowls
      • 1 head of cauliflower
      • 1 head of broccoli
      • 2 medium sweet potatoes
      • 1 medium red onion
      • 1 medium red pepper 
      • 1 1/2 cups of cooked chickpeas, drained and dried on paper towel
Dressing 
      • 1 clove of garlic 
      • ½ cup lemon juice
      • ¼ cup of tahini 
      • 4 tablespoons of olive oil
      • Salt 

Method: 

1. Cut the broccoli and cauliflower into bite size pieces. Dice the sweet potatoes and onion. Make sure that all your vegetables are relatively the same size to ensure even cooking. 

2. Place the vegetables on a baking sheet, toss with oil, salt, and pepper. Place in preheated 400-degree oven.

3. Place chickpeas on baking sheet and toss with oil, salt, and pepper. Place in oven. 

4. Cook the vegetables for 15-20 minutes until cooked through. Stir the chickpeas every ten minutes and cook until they are golden brown.

5. While everything is cooking, place the ingredients for the dressing in a food processor and blend well. 

6. When everything is cooked, place the chickpeas in the bottom of the bowl, top with all the vegetables and ladle on the dressing. The lemon is sure to bring a spark to the sweet roasted vegetables. Enjoy!
