Recipe

I am pretty obsessed with these roasted carrots and have made them three times in the past two weeks. In fact I love them so much, I wanted to create a whole dish around them, which was the inspiration for this Mexican Roasted Carrot Buddha Bowl. Everything starts with the carrots. They are tossed in chili powder and cumin and then roasted in a hot oven until they are golden brown and beginning to caramelize. Then they are tossed with lime juice and cilantro - so good. From there, it's pretty easy to assemble the rest of the dish. All you need is your favorite hearty grain, I went with farro. Then some warmed up canned pinto beans, store bought pico de gallo, and avocado. That's it for one hearty, delicious, and healthy meatless meal.
