Clif Family Tamari Glazed Mixed Nuts & Sesame Seeds
Preheat the oven to 375°F and line two rimmed baking sheets with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Spread the carrots, squash and onions in separate piles atop the baking sheets, drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt and spread in an even layer with pieces not overlapping. Place in hot oven and roast for about 20-25 minutes, rotating pans and checking vegetables for desired doneness while roasting. Remove from the oven once lightly caramelized and allow to cool slightly.
In a large bowl make glaze by whisking together the miso paste, sesame oil, vinegar, and maple syrup.
Once the vegetables have cooled a bit toss separately in miso glaze and place in piles in serving bowls.Toss the cooked rice in sesame oil to taste. Divide the rice into serving bowls. Top each bowl with avocado slices, scallions, and nut/seed mix. Drizzle on additional miso glaze if desired.
