So many vegetables from this week’s Green Grocer, so little desire to make several different meals with them.
What’s a gal to do?
I’ll tell you what *this* gal did. She asked Twitter. And dear Jenna, one of my favorite fellow eaters, shared a delicious summer vegetable casserole recipe from Food & Wine.
Naturally, I modified it.
Kitchen Sink Vegetable Bake
- olive oil
- yellow squash
- Italian seasoning (dried or fresh)
- parmesan cheese (grated)
|Prepare all vegetables by slicing into 1/4"-thick slices. Toss sliced vegetables with olive oil, salt and Italian seasoning.|
|Lightly grease a casserole dish - I used a round dish with a lid, but you can also use a 9x13" glass pan - and begin to layer vegetables, first using the potatoes. Intersperse cheese in the layers, if desired. (Why would you *not* desire this?)|
|Cover and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes. Uncover, top with Parmesan cheese, turn oven up to 425 and bake another 20 minutes.|
|Serve warm or allow to cool, cut into individual servings and store for later.|
The vegetables I listed are just the ones I used. Use whatever you have on hand. Get creative! (Or don’t. I’m not the boss of you.)
