I think it was about a year ago that I was really diligent about trying new recipes. I would try a new one about once a week. And then that stopped. I got lazy.
Lately I have been trying to do this again. This time around, I’m trying to find easy and quick recipes when I can.
I discovered the blog Love and Lemons a couple weeks ago. I love the simplistic look of this blog, the food photography is gorgeous, and the recipes look fantastic!
You know I’m all about winter squash, and lately I have heard how good delicata squash is. However, I had never cooked it. When I saw this recipe for a roasted delicata squash veggie bowl, I was finally inspired to try it.
The great thing about veggies bowls is that they are easy. You can fill your bowl up with whatever you have on hand. You can make it a really quick meal, or one that takes a little longer like this one. The squash roasts for 30-40 minutes, and the brown rice I made takes about the same amount of time. This meal probably took me around 50 minutes total to make. But you can make it simple by using rice that cooks quickly (or leftover rice), and maybe steam some vegetables which would take less time than roasting.
While the rice and squash were cooking, I cut up the other vegetables that I used (carrots, kale, and mushrooms) and got them ready to be cooked. I added a little olive oil, salt, and pepper to the kale and carrots and roasted them together for about 10 minutes. And I sautéed the mushrooms in a little olive oil and mirin for 5 minutes.
This miso sauce from Daily Garnish is really good, and easy. So that is what I made to go with this veggie bowl. I have been making this sauce at least once a week.
This meal was really good. Sonny liked it a lot too, which is great because I want to make it again. Soon.
