When the air turns cooler, I love bringing warmth and comfort to my home with seasonal dishes like this Roasted Harvest Salad with Honey-Garlic Dressing. This salad is filled with fall produce like Brussels sprouts, colorful bell peppers and red onion.  I love that roasting vegetables brings out their sweetness and natural flavors.  It can be a delicious way to enjoy all the vitamins, fiber and antioxidants that vegetables provide.

To add some protein, I tossed in chickpeas which provides 10 grams of protein per cup as well as 9.6 grams of fiber. They also turn beautifully golden brown after being roasted.  The Asian-inspired dressing made with ingredients like honey, garlic, chili flakes and soy sauce makes this salad even more crave-worthy.

This salad can be the perfect side, appetizer or addition to your Thanksgiving spread. It can also be made in large batches and portioned into serving containers for a weekly plant-based lunch option. You can also toss in whole grains like quinoa or farro to pack on more protein, fiber and make this salad more of a filling meal.
