Roasted Vegetable Forbidden Rice Bowls with Carrot Top Pesto by The Roasted Root


INGREDIENTS:
 

 

CARROT TOP PESTO

ROASTED VEGETABLE FORBIDDEN RICE BOWLS

  • 1 large zucchini squashchopped
  • 1 large patty pan squashchopped
  • 1 bunch heirloom carrots tops removed
  • 1 large sweet potato chopped
  • 3 to 4 cups cooked forbidden rice
  • 1.5 cups heirloom cherry tomatoes
  • 2 ounces microgreens
  • 4 to 8 large eggs soft or hard boiled

INSTRUCTIONS:

MAKE THE CARROT TOP PESTO

  1. Add pesto ingredients minus the oil to a food processor and pulse until roughly chopped. Leaving the food processor on, slowly stream the olive oil through the opening of the top. Taste pesto for flavor and add more sea salt and/or cider vinegar to taste. Transfer to a sealable container or jar and refrigerate until ready to use.

PREPARE THE ROASTED VEGETABLE BOWLS

  1. Preheat the oven to 415 degrees F.

  2. Spread the chopped zucchini, patty pan squash, heirloom carrots, and sweet potato over 2 large baking sheets. Lightly drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Use your hands to toss everything together so that the vegetables are coated with oil. Roast for 25 to 35 minutes, until vegetables reach desired doneness, giving the vegetables a stir or shake halfway through roasting.

  3. Divide the rice between 3 or 4 large bowls. Top with roasted vegetables, cherry tomatoes, microgreens, and hard or soft boiled eggs. Drizzle with desired amount of carrot top pesto, and serve!

PRO TIP:

Top with some Grated Parmesan Cheese to ish this dish up!
