Turmeric Roasted Vegetables with Tahini DressingI’ve been experimenting with a few different flavourful salads over the past few months, and this one is a combination of two different recipes.  Turmeric Roasted Vegetables are a nice filling lunch or dinner with a bright colour and an intense flavour. I find it really tasty and filling, especially for lunches. In these cold winter months, it’s nice to eat meals that are packed full of vitamin C and feel fresh and healthy. And Turmeric is so great – it not only adds visual interest and flavour, but is supposedly an anti-inflammatory. While this is a great meal for anyone, it’s also vegan and Whole30 compliant. 

When taking it for lunch, I leave the dressing, greens, pomegranate arils, and roasted vegetables separate and assemble it just as I’m about to eat.
