If you like spicy, add the cayenne too. Use your hands or a spatula to toss them a little bit on the pan. Place in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.

Recipe Notes

These will keep in the fridge for up to four days.

To reheat, warm them up in the microwave for a minute and 30 seconds uncovered or on low heat in a pan on the stove for about five minutes.

I recommend topping these bowls with tahini sauce, avocado or sriracha before eating!
