Harvest Season in the autumn is a great time for sweet potato meals and crock pot chili’s- but you still gotta get your greens! That’s why I love this easy roasted veggie dish. The miso dressing is totally optional of course, as serving this amazing dish with butter and lemon would be tasty as heck too. If you’re feeling like you don’t wanna cook much, [free training in the Facebook group" “Eating if you Hate Cooking”) make a double batch and save some of this for lunches and dinner the next day too. This is a super simple dinner, and food that will actually nourish you is a true blessing!
You'll want a roasting pan to roast this in...
1 head of broccoli
1 cup cubed sweet potato
1 can drained chickpeas
1 cup (248 g) tofu (cubed)
1/2 (0.5 ) red or green bell pepper , sliced
2 tsp olive oil
3/4 tsp (0.75 tsp) garlic powder
1/2 tsp (0.5 tsp) onion powder
3/4 tsp (0.75 tsp) salt

Miso Maple Lime Dressing:
1 tbsp lime juice (lemon works too)
1 tbsp miso paste
1 tbsp water
1.5 tbsp maple syrup (or honey if you don’t have maple syrup)
1 tsp olive oil, optional
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (205 C). Line a large baking dish with parchment or oil. Slice/cube the veggies and tofu and add to bowl or directly to the baking dish. Add chickpeas and drizzle oil all over and toss with spices.
Spread the veggies in the baking dish in one layer. Bake at 400 degrees F for 30 minutes. Remove and sprinkle the (optional) sunflower seeds and hemp seeds, bake for another 15 minutes or until the veggies are done to preference.
Dressing: Mix miso in lime + water until well combined. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix. (you can also use a small blender to mix the dressing). Taste and adjust flavor to preference with additional lime for tang or salt.
Serve with a drizzle of the miso maple dressing. You can serve over rice if you prefer, but this meal is a great bowl on its own!
