This Roasted Vegetable Rice Bowl is a hearty meal incorporating roasted root vegetables and rice pilaf. Great for busy winter weeknights!
Whew! Did you make it though the holidays? I did, but just barely! A few weeks ago, I shared that I was feeling pretty stressed. I feel better now and I'm ready to tackle the new year! But, I'm still relying on simple meals for weeknights while I recuperate a little bit. Easy meals are technically self-care, right? A few days ago, I put together this simple Roasted Vegetable Rice Bowl with Near East® Rice Pilaf Garlic & Herb, and it was so delicious that I had to share, just in case you all are feeling wiped out like me!
For the base of this Roasted Vegetable Rice Bowl, I used Near East® Rice Pilaf Garlic & Herb. I love this rice because it's a savory blend of long grain rice and orzo which adds extra texture and bite. It is seasoned with onion, garlic and parsley and adds fantastic flavor to any dish.

Focusing on vegetables that are easy to find in the winter, I chose root vegetables as the topping in this Roasted Vegetable Rice Bowl. Vibrant sweet potatoes, purple sweet potatoes and carrots add color and nutrition to this simple dish!
If you have other vegetables on hand, don't hesitate to add them, just be conscientious that they may need more or less roasting time. Cutting the vegetables into similar sized cubes will help to make sure they roast evenly!
