Herb Roasted Autumn Harvest Bowls [Vegan]

Cooking Time




For the Roasted Veggies:

  • 2 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dried Thyme Leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Sage
  • 3/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt (use a 1/2 teaspoon if using fine grain salt)
  • Black Pepper
  • 2 Large Parsnips, peeled, quartered, cored + cut into 1.5 inch pieces (About 3 cups cut parsnips)
  • 1 Pound Brussels Sprouts, cut in half or quartered depending on size (About 4 cups cut brussles sprouts)
  • 2 medium Sweet Potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes (About 4 Cups sweet potato cubes)

For the Lentils:

  • 1 Cup Green or Brown Lentils
  • 5 Cups Water

For the Creamy Apple Cider Dressing:

  • 1/4 Cup Tahini
  • 2 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt (less if you're using fine grain salt)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 3-4 tablespoon Water
  • Black Pepper

For the Bowls

  • 1/4 Cup Shelled Pumpkin Seeds (Pepitas) Optional


For the Roasted Vegetables:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F
  2. In a small cup, combine oil, apple cider vinegar, garlic and onion powder, thyme and sage. Mix to combine.
  3. Place all veggies onto a large sheet pan. Drizzle with the oil and vinegar mixture and using your hands, toss to coat everything evenly. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Roast for 40-50 minutes, stopping to mix the veggies after about 25 minutes.

To Cook the Lentils:

  1. While the veggies are in the oven cook the lentils. Combine lentils and water in a medium-sized pot. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to simmer.
  2. Simmer lentils for 15-20 minutes, until they are cooked but not mushy. Drain the remaining excess water and set aside.

To Make the Dressing:

  1. After the lentils are simmering, in a small bowl, combine tahini, apple cider vinegar, garlic powder, salt and black pepper. Stir to combine. The tahini will get very thick.
  2. Slowly and a little bit at a time, stir in the water. The dressing will start to look creamy and thick. Add 3-4 tablespoons of water depending on how runny you'd like the dressing.

To Put the Bowls Together:

  1. Into your bowl, add lentils and veggies. Sprinkle everything with shelled pumpkin seeds and a drizzle of the apple cider dressing. Enjoy!
