Roasted Broccoli & Quinoa Bowl with Chipotle Red Pepper Sauce

I used to make a lot more bowls when I first started making vegetarian meals, and I'm not sure why I slowed down. Maybe I got a little sick of them, but they really are a great meal that allows meat eaters to add on whatever they like. Tonight, my husband had steak, he seemed to enjoy the overall experience of it with the ingredients from the bowl.



Modified The Vegan 8 Recipe | Serves: 2 | Time: ~30 min.


Ingredients


The Quinoa

1 cup cooked #quinoa

1/4 tsp salt

Dash of chipotle chile pepper spice


The Veggies

2.5 cups frozen #broccoli florets (no need to thaw)

1/2 heaping cup chopped red #bellpepper

1 cup frozen corn


Chipotle Red Pepper Sauce

1 heaping cup #redbellpepper, chopped

Dash of chipotle chile pepper spice

1/2 tbsp coconut aminos

1 tbsp lemon juice

1/4 cooked and packed mashed #sweetpotatoes

Dash of salt

1/4-1/2 cup water, depending on desired consistency

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 415F.


Cook quinoa according to package. Mix in seasonings. Keep warm while prepping remaining steps.


Finely chop your bell peppers and place them on a parchment lined sheet pan. Season the peppers with salt. On another sheet pan lined with parchment paper, spread your broccoli out, season with salt and pepper and place both pans in the oven. Place the peppers on the middle rack and the broccoli on the lower rack. Bake for 15 minutes. Your peppers should be tender and starting to brown and the broccoli should be tender, but still firm.


Once the veggies are done baking, add the 1 cup of #bellpeppers to the blender and reserve the rest for the bowl. Add all of the other chipotle red pepper sauce ingredients to the blender as well. Blend until completely smooth. Add water to thin to desired consistency. Slightly warm over the stove just until warm if desired.


Lastly, warm up your corn.


Add everything to serving bowls and drizzle them all with the red pepper sauce. Enjoy!
