If you would have told my 15 year old self that I would one day be eating a plate of veggies for lunch and LOVING it...
I would say you are crazy!
Thanks to my mama, growing up I learned to eat my veggies. "ENJOYED" eating them is a different story! Putting aside my love of salads ( I do love salads ) I have a hard time eating the majority of veggies raw.
I started baking them with olive oil, sweet potatoes, and kosher salt and it changed my life!
It has become one of my favorite things to cook this up in the day and eat it for a snack/ lunch/ dinner.
Yes I will eat that entire pan by myself ^^
You want to know the craziest part?? It's only about 235 calories for the whole tray.
( not including small amount of olive oil you add )
I love it because it makes me feel like I'm eating a BIG meal, and it also fills me up!
(( Side note that I will generally add a Protein to eat with it also -- ( chicken, tilapia, salmon, etc. ))
I buy everything at Costco in bulk. - this bag ^^ is so wonderful!
Peel and CUT the following..
1 Sweet Potato
1 Yellow Squash
1/2 Large Onion
1/2 Red Pepper
Toss in a baggie with a little olive oil.
Spread on a cookie sheet.
And top it off with kosher salt.
Bake at 425 degrees for about 35 minutes.
I wait for them to get really soft and then stick the oven on broil to lightly blacken everything, ( WATCH IT the whole time so they don't all burn to death! )
that's what makes them crispy! :)
On Sunday's I usually cut enough for the week and put it into baggies.
With kiddos and everything else going on in the week, I don't have time every day to be cutting veggies up and waiting for 35 minutes to eat HA so I have them all pre cut and ready to throw in the oven!
Makes all the difference!
