Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and prep baking sheet with coconut oil cooking spray.

  3. Roast sweet potatoes for 5 minutes, then remove pan and add chopped brussels sprouts to other half of pan. Repeat the same process, spraying a light layer of coconut oil cooking spray on brussels sprouts, then sprinkle with remaining tsp coconut sugar, and a light layer of cinnamon and sea salt.
  4. Return pan to oven and roast another 5-6 minutes. Remove pan, flip both brussels sprouts and sweet potato, and bake another 5 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are tender and brussels sprouts are cooked and slightly crispy.
  5. Once veggies are cooked, allow to cool 5-10 minutes, then divide spinach and mixed greens between two plates or large bowls, layer with sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts, garbanzo beans, dried cranberries, and goat cheese.
  6. For the dressing, add balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, almond milk, and black pepper, to small jar or bowl and whisk until well blended. Feel free to double or triple recipe, for leftovers.
