Baked vegetables and leftovers

by | Nov 29, 2016 | Recipes | 0 comments

I know how important is having a meal plan for the week but sometimes we have some extra events and voila we have to improvise making a healthy dish with a few ingredients.

I made this recipe with leftovers and remaining vegetables. Our kids loved it and that is for me the main goal.

We have got everything from this wholesome recipe: vegetables, wholegrain and proteins. How easy is cooking with leftovers and turning them into something surprising and delicious.

Remember you can make it wholesome while keeping it super simple!
