Since the summer weather has kicked in (and more so since we bought a grill) I feel like I haven’t actually spent much time in the kitchen come dinner. Usually I marinate meat the night before, tuck it in the fridge and prep a salad while Jarob mans the grill. Not much effort required and pretty great dinners if you ask me.
Well yesterday I was reading up on these cute foil packet veggies you can make on the grill. I was all set to make them until we got home from work and the gym and realized we had no foil. So, I did the next best thing I could think of and decided to marinate and bake them in the oven. They did not disappoint. I eyeballed everything and just added a few things I thought would taste good. Here’s what I did:
1 squash, 1 zucchini, 1 red pepper, cut into inch slices, tossed in 2 TBSP of olive oil and sprinkled with oregano, basil, garlic powder and Parmesan cheese. Then baked at 400 degrees for 15 minutes and broiled on high for another 5, toasted to slightly brown edges.
These veggies were our substitute for French fries and outside of the small amount olive oil, they are pretty healthy. Lots of color and lots of fiber 🙂 …and most importantly, easy to make!
Please don’t forget, it’s the last day to enter the brownie giveaway! A winner will be picked tomorrow!
