Spiced Veggie and Rice Bowl

A pretty simple recipe that is full of flavor! Honestly, one of my favorite creations, a blend of Mexican spices and bomb veggies, atop brown rice and topped with salsa and hummus. SO GOOD.

This recipe is pretty easy to throw together once your veggies are prepped!

You’ll want to dice your sweet potatoes, cut your broccoli into florets and slice the bell pepper. In a medium sized bowl you’ll toss the broccoli and bell pepper with olive oil and the spices. place on half of the baking sheet, throw the sweet potatoes in the same bowl and add oil and spices to those as well. Throw on the other side of the baking sheet and pop that baby in the oven.

Once they are cooked up, pile on as much as you want on top of your rice, and throw on the salsa and hummus! I also added tapatio.
