This is one of my favorite ways to prepare vegetables, especially frozen. my favorite is a mix of carrots, cauliflower, and broccoli. The low slow heat caramelizes the veggies, and leaves them melt in your mouth tasty. Way better than steaming! 🙂
Bag of frozen veggies
Salt and Pepper.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Spread out frozen veggies in a baking pan, drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.
After 30 minutes flip the veggies over with a spatula, then cook another 15-30 minutes to the desired degree of done.
There are several ways to cook a spaghetti squash. Pick your favorite or what ever fits in your time schedule for that day.
1 Spaghetti Squash
Bake rind side up after cutting in half and cleaning out seeds. It will take 30 to 40 minutes at 375 F.
Separate strands by running a fork through in the “from stem to stern” direction.
Microwave the halves 6 to 8 minutes (let stand for a few minutes afterwards before using your fork to separate the strands) You can even microwave it whole but be sure to pierce it with a fork in several spots to avoid squash explosion. This will take 10 minutes on high.
Grate the fresh cauliflower. If you do not have a grater, you can chop it, but it will take a lot longer, so go ahead and buy one. It helps to cut the cauliflower into 3-4 large chunks so you can easily hold it as you grate.
Take grated cauliflower and place in the microwave for 2-3 minutes depending on microwave. Do not add water as cauliflower retains plenty of it and will release moisture as it heats up.
