Ever Evolving Food Blog

Hello Everyone! I have had this blog for years now, and as my personal life has changed, so have my tastes and eating habits...for the better!! I am now a fully plant-based eater, so my newer recipes will reflect this lifestyle and way of eating.

All of my old recipes will remain on my food blog, of course, so there will be a mixture of the old and the new for everyone to look through and choose. You can always play around with any recipe out there and make it your own, whether it's plant-based or not. There are always other options!
Thanks SO much for following! Happy Eating!

Roasted Vegetables, Apples, and Harvest Grains Blend

This plant-based blend of roasted vegetables and apples mixed with harvest whole grains is savory with the perfect hint of natural sweetness.  It's colorful, flavorful, filling, and loaded with protein, potassium, iron, fiber, and Vitamin C.


Ingredients:
8 red new potatoes (cut in half)
1 medium red onion (cut in 1-inch pieces)
2 red apples (sliced)
4 large parsnips (thickly sliced)
2 large purple carrots (thickly sliced)
1 Tbsp grape seed or coconut oil
Trader Joe's Harvest Grains Blend (orzo, Israeli couscous, red quinoa, and baby garbonzo beans) prepared according to the directions



Directions:  
Toss all of the vegetables and apples sliced lightly in about 1 Tbsp of oil.  Arrange evenly on a baking sheet, and bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees F.  

Meanwhile, cook the whole grain blend according to the directions.

Gently blend the roasted veggies and apples with the grains and serve warm.  Enjoy!
