Impromtu Delicious Dish

August 11th, 2011 No Comments

In which I throw a bunch of the stuff in my fridge into a roasting pan and it turns out really yummy.

Recently dinner parties have been slim so I’m “cooking” for myself these days.  That means minimal groceries, minimal effort.

I’ve told you once (maybe twice) and I’m going to say it again: anything you put in the oven will turn out at least edible!

I half of an uncooked sweet potato, roasted brussels sprouts from Whole Foods, broccoli, a Fuji apple, fresh turkey meat, and fresh spinach.

I simply:

  1. Chopped up the sweet potato, tossed it in the pan and covered with EVOO, salt, pepper, dried rosemary, thyme, basil, and sesame seeds.  Put it in the oven as it heated up to 425.
  2. Chopped up broccoli, 1/3 of the apple and the Brussels sprouts.
  3. Threw that into a pan after 15 minutes, lightly covered in olive oil, salt, pepper, rosemary, and a little bit of honey.
  4. Covered the pan with foil and roasted at 400 for 20 minutes (or until the potatoes are tender).
  5. Heated up the turkey in the microwave.
  6. Added fresh spinach to roasting veggies and put back into the oven for 2 minutes.
  7. Tossed deli turkey into the veggies and then devoured.

The rosemary and honey really made the whole concoction, so don’t be shy with the herbs and spices you have in the back of the cabinet.
