Tomato Roasted Brussels Sprouts

I made you guys some Tomato Roasted Brussels Sprouts! We have been staying with my in-laws during our home renovation.  My mother in law turned me on to yet another delicious way to roast Brussels sprouts. This recipe is super easy and it uses ingredients you already have in your kitchen.  These tomato roasted Brussels sprouts are great as a side dish, or you can serve them over quinoa for a complete meal.  If you also love Brussels Sprouts, you will also like my maple glazed Brussels sprouts are my shaved  Brussels sprouts salad with a lemon vinaigrette.

Lentil Burrito Bowls

I have been having a love affair with lentils lately.  This time it’s a recipe for Lentil Burrito Bowls.  My other recent recipes were the Lentil Sloppy Joes and the Easy Lentil Loaf.  I do also have another recipe for healthy burrito bowls as well.   That  one is made with a cilantro rice as a base.  These Lentil Burrito Bowls use lentils and tomatoes as the base.  This recipe is super easy.

Lentil Burrito Bowl - My Whole Food Life

The lentil base cooks very quickly.  Then all you need to do is add the fixings.  I added corn, tomatoes, lettuce, avocado and roasted red peppers.  You can really add anything you like.  Make them your own! I think some homemade salsa would be yummy on these as well.  These lentil burrito bowls are vegan and gluten free.  Make sure to top them with my dairy free sour cream. :)
