Ingredients

Roasted Veggies

1 head cauliflower, chopped
1 zucchini, chopped
3/4 red pepper, cut in strips
1 medium sized onion, chopped into large quarters
1/4 head broccoli, chopped into florets
(2 peeled and sliced carrots also make a great add)
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

Pre-heat oven to 475, place all chopped veggies onto a cookie sheet and toss in olive oil. I also sprinkled a bit of rosemary, salt and dried parsley on top. Bake for 35-45 minutes, flipping at 10-15 minute intervals. Once veggies are soft, change oven temp to broil at 400 and broil for additional 6-10 minutes, checking and flipping often.

Tabouli

1/2 cup quinoa
1 cup water
1/2 red pepper, chopped
1/2 red onion, chopped
handful fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 English cucumber (or two mini cucumbers), chopped
12-16 cherry tomatoes, chopped
1 lemon (juice only)
2 tbsp olive oil (or 3)

Instructions

Cook quinoa according to box directions. Once cooked add in all chopped veggies, add 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice and 1/2 tsp sea salt. Mix and refrigerate.

Assembly

Roast veggies first, then make tabouli and hummus. I use small little pita pockets from whole foods but you can use anything you like, wraps work really well too! Warm your pita or wrap for 30 seconds each side in a warm pan, then line the sides with hummus, spoon in some tabouli and roasted veggies and layer.

This is one of my absolute favorite summer meals!

Enjoy with a glass of  Hibiscus RoseHip Tea

 

Intention

If you allow yourself to be inspired everyday will become an adventure yet to be discovered. The key is to allow. Allow your creation of food to be a loving and fun experience for yourself and those you love. Allow your breathing to deepen and open up. Allow yourself to feel good about who you are, right here, right this minute, right now. We don’t love and appreciate ourselves enough, but we can start with deep and conscious breathing. As you breathe in think “lifting up” and as you breathe out think “allow and soften.” Start to make that part of your every practice, then gently and softly pay attention to what begins to show up for you….
