Lazy Cooking

I love cooking… most days.  Some days, the last thing I want to do is prepare a freakin’ meal.  I’m sure you’ve been there, or maybe you’re there most days. Hey, totally get it.  But let’s be honest, whatever you’re thinking about throwing in the microwave is just not good for you. Microwavable foods may be the worst thing we’ve ever created to eat, so just hold that thought…

Be prepared, this is easy!

All you need is a knife and some tin foil… and your oven… or grill.

My mom used to do this with potatoes. Well you can do it with any veggie out there.  Don’t want to do any chopping? Hey, grab a bag of the mixed frozen veggies, or pre-cut ones from the store. I won’t tell.

Take your cut up veggies and lay them on decent sized piece of tin foil.

Add Extra Virgin Olive Oil, some sea salt and fresh ground pepper.

Seriously that’s all you need.

If you’re feeling fiesty, add garlic or lemon, or whatever is looking good in your spice cabinet. Cumin! Curry! Cayenne! Whatever, it’s  your dinner!

Now to finish this.  Lift the two sides of foil together and wrap it. Then wrap the ends in and you’ve got a foil packet.

Put it in the oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.  Depending on what kind of veggies you’re cooking this may take a  little less or a little more time in the oven.

I did this with potatoes a couple times last week! Got great reviews from my friends!

Sweet potatoes and potatoes is my favorite mix!

Asparagus works great!

Or a whole mix of your favorites! Broccoli, cauliflour, carrots, onions, peppers, take your pick!

No dirty dishes! Just dump it on your plate and enjoy!

Now go be lazy, healthy, happy and hot!
