Spiced Black Bean Bowl with Roasted Veggies

Spiced Black Bean Bowl with Roasted Veggies
This is a perfect lunch or light dinner. It’s not only delicious and very easy to make, but it’s perfectly balanced. There are about 3-4 servings of healthy vegetables, a nice protein profile from the beans, plus healthy fat from the tahini. The sweet and spicy carrots and sweet potatoes give the dish a nice zing, and the creamy sauce lends a healthy fat. If you need a great way to get your vegetables and want to elevate a typical salad, give this a try. Let us know how you enjoy it! Serves 3 – 4.
