I love the Autumn season. The colors, the change in flavors, the hint of crisp air and everything else about Fall is just perfect!
Making this nourish bowl with a hint of Fall flavors was fun. I decided to roast the veggies with oregano and smoked paprika for some warmth in the taste.
For a pop of spice, I added charred Shishito peppers which made this dish so perfect!
Instead of dressing, I used hummus which becomes smooth and creamy as a dressing when combined with the hot roasted veggies.
This nourish bowl is so filling, try it out for your next lunch or dinner. You’ll be so satisfied and comforted.
From my kitchen to yours, I hope you enjoy this bowl!
