Who doesn’t love roasted vegetables? These easy Buddha bowls are the perfect way to enjoy winter produce for a warm, healthy meatless Monday meal.
Onion Notes: Winter onions range from mild to pungent in flavor, and they are ideal for roasting because they have a lower water content than spring and summer onions. Store whole onions in a cool, dry, well-ventilated place, but not in the refrigerator and not in plastic bags. Lack of air movement reduces their storage life. Peeled or cut onions may be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
Cooking Times: Keep an eye on your veggies as they roast. Some of the leafier vegtables, like cabbage and the outer leaves of Brussels sprouts, might brown more quickly. Simple remove any vegetables that are done and continue roasting the rest.
