Coach Dave’s Simple Vegetable Recipe

As I’ve mentioned in previous Ultimate Reset posts, my post-Reset nutrition plan is to eat vegetarian three to four days per week and, of course, eat generally healthy at all times. This is one of my favorite simple vegetable recipes. It couldn’t be easier to make, plus it is delicious and healthy.

Simple Vegetable Recipe |

Step 1: Chop up your favorite veggies however you like. Here, I’ve got about five carrots, a sweet potato, five or six baby zucchini, and a yellow squash. Being the anal retentive chef that I am, I have cut them all the same. (Sometimes, I even drive myself crazy.)

Step 2: Put all your goodies in a glass baking dish.I like to lightly coat the dish with olive oil before I put the veggies in, so they don’t stick too much. (I managed to resist the temptation to organize them neatly in the pan and just dumped them in).

Step 3: Prepare and apply the sauce. I typically opt for something pretty light and oil-based here. Again, that helps with the veggies drying out too much and sticking to the pan. Today, I’ve got 2 tablespoons of coconut oil mixed with salt, pepper, garlic, and about half a teaspoon of Bragg’s Amino Acids for a little flavor.

Step 4: Bake at 375 F for about 45 minutes. Depending upon the veggies you use, it may take longer or shorter to cook them to the softness you want. The sweet potatoes take quite a while, but the yellow squash cooks pretty quickly.

Step 5: EAT! On non-vegetarian days, I’ll pair this with a little lean chicken breast. Today, it was just a big bowl full of veggies for both Monica and I.

I hope you enjoy this simple vegetable recipe! Be sure and visit our Recipe hub to see what other healthy dishes we’re cooking up.

      My pleasure! Last night I just had them steamed, but it was pretty much the same deal, minus the coconut oil.

    This looks delicious! You can also pan-roast your favorite veggies with a bit of olive oil if you are in a hurry!
