When the days turn shorter and colder, it is almost without thinking that I gravitate towards roasted vegetables paired with brown rice or quinoa or even pureed into soup. There is comfort in winter’s heartiest vegetables. The ease of preparation for dishes like these allow for more important things, like cozying up on the couch with a blanket binge-watching The Crown.

The coconut-almond sauce calls for soy sauce, so if you need to ensure it is gluten-free, sub in coconut aminos or gluten-free soy sauce. I’ve used both and they work perfectly.
