Keep your glow all winter! Easy homemade falafel, roasted veggies, and flavorful sauce all in one big bliss bowl! vegetarian / vegan / gluten free recipe.



For the Roasted Veggies

  • 57 carrots
  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 teaspoons cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the Bliss Bowls

  • 810 pieces of Simple 5 Ingredient Baked Falafel
  • 23 cups spinach
  • 12 cups chopped red cabbage
  • 1 jalapeño, cut into slices
  • 1/4 cup crushed pistachios
  • tahini, lemon juice, honey, and/or olive oil for drizzling


  1. Falafel: Make this falafel so you have it all ready to go! It takes about 30 minutes.
  2. Roasted Veggies: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Peel the carrots and cut into thin strips and place on a roasting pan (a jelly roll pan works well because then the veggies don’t slide off). Chop the cauliflower into small florets and place on a separate roasting pan. Drizzle each pan with oil and sprinkle each pan with cumin, salt, and pepper. Toss around on the pan to combine. Bake for 20-30 minutes – stir occasionally, but not too often otherwise you’ll disrupt the browning process. To get more browning, bake for an additional 10-15 minutes. When the veggies are done, remove from oven and set aside to cool.
  3. Bliss Bowl Assembly: Assemble spinach, red cabbage, falafel, carrots, and roasted cauliflower in the bowls. Top with jalapeño and pistachios. Drizzle with tahini, lemon juice, honey, olive oil, and salt and pepper as needed.


Nutrition information is for THE BASE of the bowl (the fresh veggies, the roasted veggies, and the nuts), without falafel, and without dressing. The falafel post includes its own nutrition label so you can tally up the total as needed.

Generally speaking, the amounts will vary greatly with this recipe because a lot depends on how much and what you use for toppings.
