Healthy & Clean Roasted Vegetables with Wild Rice

I was thinking that my dinner last night was too simple to post on here, but sometimes simple and clean and healthy is the best way to go. I also know that some people are just looking for something straight forward that is really good for them. While the wild rice does take around 45 minutes to cook, if you start making it whilst you’re chopping and peeling and baking the veggies, it should all come together in about an hour. You could also pre-chop the vegetables and/or make the rice earlier in the day to save even more time.

Healthy & Clean Roasted Vegetables and Wild Rice
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 1 potato, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • a few pineapple slices, chopped
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • a few brussel sprouts
  • a couple of carrots, peeled and chopped
  • a few garlic cloves, minced or roughly chopped
  • 1 cup of dry wild rice (makes around 3ish cups I think when cooked, so adjust accordingly to how much you'll wanna make :))
  1. Here is an information page on how to cook wild rice: How to Cook Wild Rice. It basically says that you bring 4 cups of water to bowl and add in 1 cup of wild rice, return to bowl, then cover pot, reduce heat to a simmer and leave for 45 minutes until the rice has "butterflied" or split open.
  2. Preheat oven to 400F. Prepare all your veggies, add into a large bowl and then add in the seasonings of your choice, as well as the liquid smoke, olive oil and lemon juice (You can omit things I added and also add other things in) and toss to evenly coat all the veggies.
  3. Next, place on a baking sheet or casserole dish in an even layer and bake for around 35-45 minutes. Half way through baking, I like to briefly remove the vegetables and give them a toss in the dish so the bottom side can evenly cook as well.
  4. To serve, I added ½ cup of wild rice with a couple of scoops of the vegetables and drizzled with a bit of liquid aminos (low sodium soy sauce alternative) and I was out of my usual romaine lettuce salad, so I just cut up a few slices of avocado and cucumber and had a bit of that with it.
