Cooler weather calls for all the warm, roasted vegetables in bowls and salads. I love a good grain bowl because there are so many ways to switch them up to make it work for you! These Roasted Vegetable Grain Bowls are packed with roasted vegetables and so nourishing for an easy lunch or dinner.

I love finding easy meals to rotate for lunch during the week. These Roasted Vegetable Grain Bowls are the perfect fall meal that is simple to make and great to meal prep for the week! The warm roasted vegetables make this cozy and nourishing too. I love pairing it with the creamy jalapeno sauce for additional flavor and it’s delicious mixed in here!

If you want to add more protein to this meal, you can easily add grilled chicken or rotisserie chicken! It would also be delicious with a veggie burger or tofu if you want to keep it as a meatless meal. If you want to plan to meal prep these bowls, I’d recommend cooking more farro and vegetable than the recipe calls for.
