One thing that you can do to make creating delicious meals throughout the week very easy is to saute a bunch of veggies and keep them in the fridge so they’re ready ahead of time. I typically saute a bunch of onions and zucchini once or twice a week and use them in my scrambled eggs in the morning or for lunch with some Slow Cooker Roast Chicken. They’re really easy to make. You can pick your favorite vegetables and have a big batch that’s good for several meals in just a few minutes.
If you’re using your grill just for grilling meat, you’re missing out. Grill your veggies! And use that grill year-round. There’s no reason to grill only in the summer. This is one of my favorite ways to prepare vegetables and you can grill just about any vegetable and they’re really tasty. Well… you probably wouldn’t want to grill leaf lettuce or beet greens. All you do is chop them up, coat with olive oil - bacon fat also works great for extra flavor - add some salt and pepper and throw them on the grill. Do a bunch so that you can use them for meals throughout the week.
This is a simple, quick and delicious way to prepare broccoli as a side dish. This goes really well with the Mandarin Orange Chicken.
I almost didn’t post this recipe because it’s so easy that it’s hard to call it a recipe. But I know that there are a lot of people that don’t think to grill vegetables and they’re so good when you do! Simple. Easy. Delicious!
WARNING! These are kind of addictive. If you’re not careful, you’ll end up eating 2 or 3 sweet potatoes worth of these delicious bites in one sitting. The spices combined with the natural sweetness of the potatoes make an amazing combination. You can also make fries with this recipe by, well, cutting the potatoes into fries. But I’ve found doing the smaller bite sized pieces is quicker and easier. They’re great with the Caramelized Onion Bacon Burgers and they go well with lots of other veggie dishes as well. Just remember my warning.
This is a large batch so you’ll have lots of leftovers if you don’t eat them all up at once.
The perfect companion to Thai Style Pork Ribs. Super easy to make and tasty!
I’m not actually a huge fan of green beans. Maybe it’s because of all those overcooked canned green beans that I was forced to eat as a kid (sorry, Mom). But some of the green beans that I’ve had at Thai restaurants have been really good. So the last time I made Thai Style Pork Ribs, I searched for a good Thai green bean recipe and found one but it had soy sauce, canola oil and peanut butter in the recipe. This is the Paleoized version and these beans are really, really good!
