Brown Rice Roasted Veggie Bowl + Afia Traditional Falafel

Vegan Brown Rice Roasted Veggie Bowl + Afia Traditional Falafel
Fall is a busy time of year for our Afia team, and this recipe makes it easy to fuel ourselves with nutritious food. Brown rice, roasted vegetables, and crunchy falafel give the perfect texture and flavors for cooler weather. Afia Traditional Falafel—scratch made from a medley of garbanzo beans, onions, and Mediterranean herbs, and spices—perfectly complements any number of veggies and grains for a vegan Buddha bowl that suits the season.

We love the simplicity and wholesomeness of bowls, but best of all, they are easy and fast to prepare and very satisfying to eat. Like our own product recipes, this one is traditional with simple ingredients. It’s a vegan bowl that can easily be customized using any of your favorite fall vegetables or any of our falafel flavors.
