We cooked up Giada de Laurentiis’ roast veggies for Thanksgiving. Delicious and flavorful, the family munched on them for two days before it was time for a fresh taste. Enter the remix.
Many dishes, particularly those featuring fresh veggies, can be reclaimed as new dishes. Our vegetables made a delicious set of omelettes packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other phytonutrients. Get creative in the kitchen; it is fun and tasty to play with your food.
Veggie omelettes or frittatas are a great way to freshen up leftovers. Ingredients:
- 5 eggs (health twist: 1 whole, 4 egg whites)
- brie (about 8 slices)
- leftover veggies, warmed
- olive oil, s+p
In medium-hot skillet, pour beaten eggs over oil and cook until edges peel away from pan. Pour about 1 cup of veggies over half the pan. Top with brie or your choice of cheese. Fold other side of omelette over filling and cook until cheese melts, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and enjoy!
Beyond breakfast, these vegetables could have been re-roasted and pureed into pasta sauce; tossed into a soup; or layered into lasagna. Stay tuned for future remix suggestions and share your own innovations in the comments section.
