Okay eating this isn't going to turn you into some feral beast... but it should inspire some rustic, natural feelings.
I love this when I need a filling meal but am not wanting to be weighed down or 'cheat' on my good eating habits. This meal is big on flavor, color, textures & nutrition.
+ 2 cups wild rice, cooked
+ 1 Butternut squash (skin & seeds removed, cut into chunks)
+ 1 Cauliflower, trimmed and chunked
+ 2 White onions, chunked
+ 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
+ 2 cups brussel sprouts
+ 1 tbsp cumin seeds
+ 1 tbsp caraway seeds
+ 1/2 cup olive oil
+ Juice of one lemon
+ 2 tbsp honey
+ 2 minced garlic cloves
+ 1 tbsp coarse mustard
+ salt and pepper to taste
Turn oven to 375. Put the oil, seasonings and vegetables (all top ingredients other than the rice) into a baking dish. Let roast until tender ~60 minutes, stirring occasionally to coat with the oil. Meanwhile, whisk together all the dressing ingredients.
Toppings can make all the difference. I love adding marcona almonds, feta cheese and smoked trout to make this a complete meal. Chives are also a pretty nice addition and pop of color.
