TT: Baked Veggies, the Easiest Way (Very Tasty and Healthier)

Forget gratins, frittatas, or veggies with beaten eggs, sour cream, and milk. Today’s Tip is about the easiest, tastiest, and much healthier way to bake veggies. And it uses frozen veggies, so the whole thing gets in the oven in half a minute!

You need three ingredients: frozen veggies, mixed shredded cheese, and olive oil. You don’t need salt, pepper, garlic, butter, sour cream, eggs, milk, or even water. You just put in the veggies (try to break them apart a little with your hands) and the cheese, and then pour about four tablespoons of olive oil for a packet of vegetables. Most of this olive oil will gather in the bottom of the roasting pan, but that’s okay, because some of it will get mixed with the veggies as well—and it certainly makes a difference taste-wise.

For the vegetables, you can use a mix of broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots, or string beans with carrots, peas, and corn—any mix you prefer, really. Same thing for the cheeses, except I wouldn’t recommend using only Parmesan, for instance. But you can use a combination of mozzarella and Parmesan, for instance, if you don’t have a packet of blended shredded cheese.

Okay. Here’s a photo to whet your appetite. Please note that you can use less cheese than I’m showing here. In fact, now that I’ve made this dish a few times, I’ve settled on less cheese myself as well, so instead of using a whole 200-gram packet, I’m using only two thirds of it.

This is an easy and rather healthy gluten-free dish that the whole family can enjoy.
