Savor all the fall produce with these healthy and nourishing Autumn Bowls with a Maple Almond Dressing!
We started the week with a super indulgent (but so so so worth it) treat with my Caramel Pumpkin Magic Bars, and now we’re onto something a little more nutrient packed: Autumn Nourish Bowls with Maple Almond Dressing. Moderation, y’know?
I’m kind of on a roll with the bowls. I seriously can’t get enough of them. First the Thai Peanut Turkey Rice Bowls and now these super delicious and healthy Autumn Nourish Bowls with Maple Almond Dressing.
I love stocking up on winter squash because if you keep them in a relatively cool spot, they’ll stay good for months. Just don’t keep them on top of your refrigerator. I learned that lesson the hard way.
I’m also super excited that brussels sprouts are back in season at the farmers market! I love buying them that way, as much of a pain in the butt they are to carry in a bag. Like, there’s no good way to put it in? It’s just, awkward. But worth it to be all like, heyyyy I’m buying a whole freaking stalk of brussels sprouts! Just me?
Anyways, these bowls have quite a few components going on, but all delicious things.
First, perfectly roasted, paprika spiced butternut squash. It makes my heart go pitter patter.
Then, maple and balsamic roasted brussels sprouts. Gahhhh so delicious.
Next up, crispy sautéed chickpeas and kale. Both stellar.
You top a bed of your favorite whole grain (I used Bob’s Red Mill – not sponsored – Whole Grain Medley because it’s delicious and healthy) with all of these goodies and then drizzle it with a super simple Maple Almond sauce. To die for.
Aaaaand since we’re being all virtuous by eating all the veggies for dinner, we can have a pumpkin bar or two to balance it all out, right?!Print
