Happy Veggie Bowl

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.



  • Prep Time: 25 minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x
  • Category: Main Course



  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion (cut into 1” dice)
  • 2 cups cauliflower
  • 2 cups sweet potatoes (peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes)
  • 2 cups Brussels sprouts (halved)
  • 2 cups kale (shredded)
  • 3 cups cooked quinoa (warm)

Coconut Sriracha Sauce:

  • ½ cup full fat coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard


  1. Preheat oven to 425°Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Toss onion and other veggies with the olive oil. Season well with salt and pepper. Arrange veggies in a single layer on the baking sheet. Roast for 20-25 minutes or until tender and golden.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk coconut sriracha sauce ingredients together and refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. To serve, place 3/4 cup warm quinoa each in four bowls. Top with 1/2 cup shredded kale and 1 ½ cups of roasted veggies. Drizzle the coconut sriracha sauce over the bowls and serve.


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

    This looks so delicious! I think I may make this for my lunches next week. It’s starting to get chilly out so a warm quinoa bowl would be a nice change for my usual kale salads! The coconut siracha sauce especially sounds AMAZING!!

    This looks amazing! I love your cleanse and your smoothie challenges. I was wondering if your book, Let’s Eat, is dairy free. Thanks for all you do! Have a wonderful day. 🙂

    Quinoa is a grain is there any non grain ingredient that can replace the quinoa?

  10. Crunchy Mama

    October 6th, 2015 at 8:35 am

    Quinoa is actually a seed, not a grain, but, if you’re avoiding quinoa, you could try making cauliflower “rice” and using that to replace the quinoa.

  11. SGS Rawkstar

    October 6th, 2015 at 6:02 pm

    Hi Crunchy Mama,

    Great suggestion! We might just have to try this recipe with cauliflower rice! YUM!

  12. SGS Rawkstar

    Hi Kim,

    We love Crunchy Mama’s suggestion! Cauliflower rice would be a great substitute for quinoa in this recipe!

    Cheers 🙂

    Dear Jen & Jadah,
    Is this a hardcover book or only available online? I enjoy the pictures and to look it up to plan without having to access it through the internet as well. Also the juices & meals I did in the last cleanse. Still loving the green smoothies. It looks like you’ve updated the website, very appealing looking and fun too!
    Great job ladies!!

    I would love to try this recipe, but I have a nut allergy. Is there a substitution for the almond butter and do many of the recipes in the book use nuts? Thanks!

    Same thing I want to know! Thanks for posting!

  17. SGS Rawkstar

    October 6th, 2015 at 5:55 pm

    Hi Kavli,

    A seed butter, like sunflower, is a great substitute for almond butter in this recipe!

    Cheers 🙂

    Hi Leah,

    We want you to try this recipe too! Substitute almond butter with a seed butter that won’t effect your allergies. I love sunflower butter! Or leave it out! This recipe will still taste amazing! We promise!

    Cheers 🙂

    Can couscous be used as a substitute for quinoa?



  20. SGS Rawkstar

    Hi Shaniqua,

    Great option! Couscous would make a great substitute for quinoa in our Happy Veggie Bowl!

    This was really good. My son was actually willing to eat it because of the sriracha. I loved all the veggies and the quinoa.

    So do you roast the kale with all the veggies or just use it as a raw topping. Not clear from the instructions. Hoping to make this tonight! Thanks!

  24. SGS Rawkstar

    January 13th, 2016 at 1:40 pm

    Hi Ayschia,

    We love to toss kale raw into our Happy Veggie Bowl! It adds a great freshness to the roasted veggies in this recipe!

    I eat at Fresh Kitchen all the time for lunch, LOVE it! Wish they had one in Wesley Chapel. I really like their sauces, it kicks the bowl up a notch.

    Hi Kim,

    Yum! Fresh Market is definitely a great option for quick-healthy delicious meals! And yes, doesn’t the sauce always make the bowl even more exciting. That’s why I love the Coconut Sriracha Sauce in our Happy Veggie Bowl!

    Looks delicious! I love roasted veggie bowls. Can you provide the nutrition information?

    Hi Jackie,

    I LOVE this recipe!! When it comes to food, we try to not focus on the numbers – instead we try to focus on fueling our body with whole nutritiously packed ingredients. So you won’t find that information with our recipes at the moment. Of course we realize many members of our community want this information – so we’ve started to come around + you’ll see that we’ve begun to include nutritional information with many of our new recipes. In the meantime – MyFitnessPal + LoseIt are great options to determine the nutritional information of our plant-powered recipes!! 🙂
