Roasted Vegetable Enchiladas

I don’t know why sometimes enchiladas get a bad rap.  They don’t have to be full of cheese and swimming in a high calorie sauce.  These roasted vegetable enchiliadas are sure to hit the spot and cure any craving for a gooey and cheesy enchilada.

Start by chopping up some veggies and throwing them on a sheet pan.  I used bell pepper, zucchini, carrots, and onion.  Toss them with extra virgin olive oil and roasted them off until tender and light brown.  About 400 degrees for 20 minutes.

This a great little trick that I always do….put some sauce down in your pan first before anything else so nothing sticks.

Roasted Summer Vegetables

Hello there!  Sorry for the radio silence last week.  I got a freelance job through eBay writing some guides for them.  You can check them out here. Be sure to like them or comment on them so I can do some more!

Anywho, I missed this little blog of mine and you guys of course!

My summer garden is in full swing, which means I have summer squash coming out of my ears.  What is a good way to use it up?

Roast it off.  I roast big batches of vegetables and then eat them all week!

For this batch I used yellow squash, carrots, onions, and asparagus.  I just used whatever I had in my fridge.

Drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil and some salt and pepper and you are golden.

Ingredients
  • Any combination of vegetables of your choosing, I used yellow squash, onion, carrots, and asparagus
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Cut up your vegetable to bite size.  The smaller they are the faster they cook.
  3. Drizzle with a little oil and sprinkle on some salt and pepper.  Toss with your hands so everything is coated.  Roast for about 20 minutes, but the time will depends a lot on how big you cut your vegetables. They will be fork tender and be starting to brown a little bit.
  4. Eat!
