Roasted Spiralized Vegetable and Quinoa Bowl

I spent this weekend with my mom and my sister.

It was a much-needed weekend with family, and we spent a lot of time exercising, relaxing, and eating well.

In July, my parents sold their house and moved to Singer Island in Florida. They’ve been coming down here for years during the winters (they bought a condo years ago) and they finally decided to take the plunge and move here full-time.

While my father still flies up every couple of weeks for work, they’ve really settled into Florida life well. And after a weekend, I understand why!

Living in a place that’s warm year-round really lends itself to being healthy. There’s no “it’s so cold out, all I want is mac and cheese!” Instead, you want refreshing salads, crunchy sandwiches, and lots of water and iced tea.

You’re more motivated to go outside and do things! Every day we were here, we worked out and had a healthy lunch.

The first day we were here, my sister and I ran four miles. (Felt so good to run again!)

The next day, we did a private Pilates session. (My abs are killing me!)

The next day, we went to an Orange Theory Fitness class. (How much fun!)

We went to this place Christopher’s Kitchen in Palm Beach Gardens twice for vegan lunches and it re-affirmed my love of vegan food – it’s just so nourishing, filling, and makes you glow from the inside out.

It was a much-needed weekend, I feel rejuvenated (thanks to the exercise, sun rays, and healthy eats), and I’m happy to be going home and continuing the healthy stride at home.

Roasted Spiralized Vegetable and Quinoa Bowl

This recipe is one I’m going to be making on repeat all fall and winter – it’s easy (just toss together roasted spiralized veggies with quinoa!) and saves well in the refrigerator.

This dish is filling, flavorful, protein-packed, and colorful. It would go well with some goat cheese, too – it’s definitely a versatile dish.

You could even fill a whole wheat wrap with this quinoa dish (and maybe add some avocado or hummus for more texture and to bind it all together.)

However you decide to enjoy this, I hope it makes your weekly dinner routine!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 large parsnips peeled, Blade D, noodles trimmed

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Can't wait to try this one!! Hey maybe someday we'll get you and Lu to move down here :) We moved from PA to Delray Beach 14+years ago....best thing ever!!! Living in South Florida is like being on vacation every single day...well almost ❤️
Ali Maffucci says:
Maybe one day! It's definitely hard having my parents down there and so far away! So glad you like the recipe!
Susan Anderson says:
I'm seriously bummed I still cannot source big enough carrots. But this recipe looks great!!
Ali Maffucci says:
What a bummer! Sorry to hear that! Try golden beets, butternut squash or sweet potatoes instead!
Patty Nyberg says:
Am I reading correctly that the fat gram content is 57? That is way over my 33 gram per day goal.
Ali Maffucci says:
The fat comes from the almonds and olive oil!
Anonymous says:
It looks like the nutrition facts (at least the fat content) might have been the total amount for 4 servings, rather than 1?
Eliza says:
Made this dish last night, it was fabulous!
Lauren says:
Just checking this recipe really is for 1? As the directions day to serve into bowls, in plural? And it seems like a lot. Thanks
Amber says:
Is this really supposed to be one serving for the entire recipe? The 3 cups cooked quinoa alone would leave me stuffed, even without the veggies!
Jeanne says:
I tried to roast my yummy sweet potato fries in my power air fryer on 400 for 15 minutes like a nice beet & sweet potatoes salad recipe said and I burnt to a crisp my wonderful yummy noodles??? Suggestions for air fryer or Nuwave fries??? Also just firm consistency sweet potato noodles??
Meaghan says:
For firm sweet potato noodles, be sure that you're using super fresh sweet potatoes and be sure the temp isn't too high! We do not use an air fryer, we usually bake our fries! https://inspiralized.com/crispy-baked-spiralized-fries/
Shannon says:
thank you for more vegan recipes! I feel like I hit a jackpot! I'm going to a family gathering for Easter and have been asked to bring a few vegan dishes. Would you happen to have any suggestions for some that are easy to transport?
CDL-TheOpus says:
Actually when someone doesn't understand aftesr that its up to other visitors that they will help, so here it takes place.
Stephanie says:
Adding a little goat cheese took this dish from a tasty, healthy side dish to the next level. Craveable and delicious!
Carly Glazer says:
Wow Stephanie! Great idea!

ramen is the perfect meal for this season of life. it’s cozy, comforting, filling, and satisfying. 🙏🏼 needless to say, I’ve been eating tons of ramen bowls lately, and I’m extra excited to share this one with you, a take on Japanese miso ramen: Miso Noodles with Smoky Tempeh (using @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh) and Kale. 🥬 🍜 #LightlifePartner⁣

this is kind of like two recipes in one, because this smoky tempeh is good on everything – in sandwiches, on salads, in grain bowls - it’s my go-to flavor when I’m making tempeh (especially for those who aren’t as far along on the tempeh train as I am.) the other recipe is the simplest miso ramen with kale, which you’ll be making over and over again. 👏🏼 also, you can simply sub in @lightlifefoods’ Smoky Tempeh product here, to save time!⁣

you can find @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh at @acmemarkets or @wholefoodsmarket, but use their Store Locator on their site to find out where it’s sold near you. 🛒⁣

recipe below 👇🏼👇🏼⁣

Miso Ramen with Smoky Tempeh and Kale⁣
Serves: 4⁣

Ingredients⁣
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil⁣
8-ounce package @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh, cubed⁣
¼ cup soy sauce, low sodium⁣
2 tablespoons maple syrup⁣
¼ teaspoon smoked paprika⁣
1 teaspoon liquid smoke⁣
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder⁣
2 garlic cloves, minced⁣
1-inch knob ginger, minced⁣
4 cups vegetable broth⁣
1 tablespoon miso paste⁣
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce⁣
4 cups finely chopped kale⁣
12 ounces ramen noodles⁣

Directions⁣
Heat half the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tempeh slices and cook for 5 minutes until browned, stirring frequently.⁣

While tempeh cooks, stir together ¼ cup of water, soy sauce, maple syrup, smoked paprika, liquid smoke, and garlic powder. Pour that over the cooked tempeh and stir to coat. Let cook another 5 minutes or until moisture is evaporated and tempeh is browned. Set aside on a parchment lined plate.⁣

Heat the remaining oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the broth and 2 cups of water and bring to a boil over high heat.

taco mondays are the new taco tuesdays! 🌮 but seriously... every day is a good day for a taco, right? 🥑⁣

the whole family loved these tonight, so I figured I'd share the recipe with you all! for so long, I over-thought fish tacos and now, I've got them down to a pretty easy science: slaw in an avocado sauce, a garnish, and pan seared cod. oh, and some quality corn tortillas, warmed in a skillet first (it makes such a difference!) 👇🏼⁣

cod fish tacos⁣
makes 9 tacos (3 servings) ⁣

ingredients ⁣
~ 1 ripe avocado⁣
~ 1 lime, juiced⁣
~ 1 small garlic clove, sliced⁣
~ 1 large handful cilantro⁣
~ salt and pepper⁣
~ 4 cups coleslaw mix ⁣
~ 9 corn tortillas ⁣
~ avocado oil ⁣
~ 3 boneless, skinless cod filets (about 3-ounces each) ⁣
~ 2/3 cup pineapple mango salsa (or similar) ⁣

directions⁣
in a food processor, place the avocado, lime, garlic, cilantro, 1/4 cup water, and season with salt and pepper and process until smooth. place the coleslaw in a large bowl and add the avocado crema and toss to coat. set aside.⁣

warm the tortillas in a large skillet and set aside, 3 on a plate. ⁣

add the oil to the skillet and once oil is hot, add the cod. cook for 5 minutes, flip, and cook another 5 minutes or until the cod flakes and is opaque. using a spatula, break the cod up into pieces. divide the cod onto the warmed tortillas. top with avocado slaw and mango salsa. serve.⁣
