Dig into these hearty and healthy roasted vegetable brown rice bowls! The vegetables are roasted with extra virgin olive oil and chipotle peppers for added spice and flavor. Throw in some black beans and top it with a tangy lime sour cream sauce.
The sauce is optional, and the bowls are delicious without it too. Use any veggies you have and customize it to your liking. This is an easy meal to prepare in advance, store in refrigerator and have ready all week. The recipe is vegetarian friendly or ready to be served with a protein of your choice. Make it and enjoy a nice hot meal on a cold day.
So I know it’s Thanksgiving tomorrow, and food bloggers everywhere have a million and one perfect recipes to share, but I don’t. Not this year. Maybe next Thanksgiving I can be a magical food blogger and have a ton of yummy fall dishes one after the other. For now, I will just be real and chat with you about my latest Trader Joe’s buys. I will also include some of the ingredients I’m using for the Thanksgiving dishes I am cooking for my family.
My husband and I have two Thanksgiving dinners every year, one at my parent’s house and one at his parent’s house. Twice the fun and twice the love! My mom and mother in law make their own main dishes, so I don’t ever make the turkey or ham. I am more of the fun and tasty side dish girl.

I don’t normally shop at Vons or Safeway which are the two stores that carry her line, but I made the trip to Vons a couple of weeks ago, and purchased some of her items. I will share my thoughts on the items I got with you. Let’s get started!
