VEGGIE STUFFED BAKED POTATOES

 

  • Cooking Time: 40
  • Servings: 2
  • Preparation Time: 10

Ingredients

  • 2 large baking potatoes
  • 1/2 cup broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup cauliflower florets
  • 1/2 cup sliced red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 of a medium sized tomato (diced)
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 2 garlic gloves
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • shredded cheese (cheddar or a mix bag)

Directions

  • Rinse baking potatoes well, when dry brush all over with olive oil and sprinkle salt on the skin. Place directly on to the rack of a 425 degree oven. Bake for 40 minutes or until fork tender.
  • Place all cut up veggies and garlic in a steamer bin and steam for about 15-20 minutes or until veggies are just becoming tender.
  • Once potatoes are baked place in individual bowls. Open the potatoes by cutting length and width wise and smash up the insides with a fork. Brush on olive oil or butter (optional). Place half the veggies inside each potato, should be overflowing. Then sprinkle a bit of cheese on top. I usually then place the potatoes back into the "off" oven just to melt the cheese a bit.

Notes

This is just one of my favorite simple meals to pull together. You can basically substitute any of the veggies for what you prefer.
