Cook your favorite grain to use as a base for your bowl and set aside.

 

Prepare a parchment-lined baking sheet.

 

In a large bowl, add the sweet potatoes, butternut squash and bell peppers or vegetables of choice. Drizzle in olive oil from California and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss to combine. Spread the mixture evenly over the baking sheet. Using the same bowl, toss cauliflower florets with olive oil and your favorite spices, such as paprika and garlic powder. Spread them on the baking sheet with the rest of the vegetables.

 

Cook the vegetables until golden and cooked to your liking, about 40 minutes. 

 

Assemble the Bowl:
