Roasted Vegetables with Brown Rice


  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into small florets
  • 1 pound mixed potatoes, cut into chunks (or, small potatoes like fingerlings or easter egg)
  • 1 bunch carrots, peeled and cut into ½-inch pieces
  • 1 cup brown rice (wehani works well)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


Preheat your oven to 400. Toss the cauliflower, potatoes, and carrots in 3 tablespoons of olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Place the cauliflower on one baking sheet, the potatoes and carrots on another (they have different cooking times). In a saucepan, combine the rice and 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer. Add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Cover and cook 50 minutes. Meanwhile, remove the cauliflower after about 25 minutes. Remove the potatoes and carrots after about 1 hour. After the rice is fully cooked, remove the pot from the heat, keep covered and let sit for 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork, season with salt and pepper. Serve a mound of rice topped with roasted vegetables, and enjoy!
