Vegan Kung Pao w/Roasted Veggies

I love sweet and salty combinations. This is why I like Asian recipes. Popular Kung Pao recipes use chicken. I found other recipes that used a few vegetables, but I like mixing several veggies to stay full longer. Since I love roasted veggies, so I chose to roast them first before mixing in the sauce. I decided to use rice in my recipe, but cauliflower rice works well too.
