I love recipes that are basically just big bowls full of delicious, nutritious ingredients. Eating out of a bowl just feels comforting, don’t you think?

This recipe allows for such versatility, so you can easily omit or substitute ingredients to fit your dietary needs, and you’ll still have a delicious bowl of food!

These bowls are also an easy way to eat the rainbow and load up on those antioxidants and nutrients from greens and veggies.

Head over to the website for this recipe and some great variations!

Ingredients

  • 1 red bell pepper, cubed
  • 1 green bell pepper, cubed
  • 1 eggplant, cubed
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 large zucchini, sliced
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Cauliflower Rice Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 onion, finely diced
  • 1 bag cauliflower rice, or 1 head of cauliflower, riced
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 bunch fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 bunch fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Optional: Hummus, for topping (homemade or compliant store-bought), crumbled feta cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread veggies across it in one single layer. Toss with extra-virgin olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper. Bake for 45-5o minutes, or until veggies are soft and start to blister.
  3. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add in onion, garlic, and herbs and cook until the onion turns translucent. Add in cauliflower rice and lemon and cook for 5 minutes. Take off heat and set aside.
  4. Assemble the bowl! Place roasted veggies and cauliflower rice in serving bowls of choice. Top with hummus, feta cheese (if using), and serve right away or store in an airtight container for later.

Variations: To make this autoimmune protocol compliant, omit all nightshades and add in broccoli, zucchini, squash, sweet potato, brussels sprouts, carrots, etc. Use your favorite herbs and seasonings to change up the flavor profile.

    I was always told that zucchini is a nightshade vegetable. You list above as not being one.??

      Hi, Marcia. Zucchini is a member of the gourd family, and is actually a fruit. It is not a nightshade, and can be a great alternative for those avoiding nightshades or eating an anti-inflammatory diet.
