This dish was inspired by my favorite place to eat in Tampa, Florida: Fresh Kitchen. It's a small little place but they pack a mighty clean-eating punch. Roasting veggies helps bring out their natural sweetness as they become caramelized in a hot oven. Use the veggies listed below, or roast a tray of your favorite veggies at the beginning of the week and reheat to use in the bowls.

Can make a big batch of roasted veggies at the beginning of the week and use the leftovers here. Other suggest veggies: butternut squash, broccoli, zucchini, and bell peppers. Peanut or another nut or seed butter can be used in place of the almond butter. Or it can be omitted. Light coconut milk can also be used, but the sauce will be thinner.
GF option: use gluten-free Tamari and Dijon mustard
