This nutrient veggie-packed feta bake couldn’t come at a more appropriate time. Make sure you read this with a nasally accent (<-ew) because this gal is sick again…or rather, maybe never got better? Either way, I get all heart-eyed at veggies when I am under the weather, but less in the raw sense and more in the perfectly seasoned-covered in feta-and hit with a ogarlicy olive oil punch-type. Insert ?Feta Veggie Bake?.
This quick and easy bake with go perfectly as a side for your chicken, pork, steak, you name it! Let’s utilize all those crockpot sweet potatoes we made and layer in the flavor! The food processor will also be your best friend with this dish to keep things snappy and easy, naturally my favorite words in relation to dinner, and this awesome contraption has continued to be my life saver. If you haven’t grabbed yours yet, you are probably giving chopping YEARS of your life. Say no to chopping and yes to one of my favorites->
Kitchen Aid Food Processor [for the heavy duty jobs]
Cuisinart Mini Food Processor [for the quick chopping stuff]
Utilize your chopping contraption for the carrots and kale in this recipe as well as the garlic oil (garlic cloves + olive oil). The carrots and kale will cook delightfully well and the garlic oil is going to infuse itself into that tomato layer; and you know we all need more garlic infusion in our lives.
My guess is, aside from that heavenly later of feta atop this veggie wonder bake (its affectionate name) was the drizzle of perhaps my favorite short cut ingredient EVER. DeLallo Modenacrem Balsamic Glaze.
Balsamic glaze is not on the list of Most Difficult Things To Make Ever, but it is certainly time consuming. Although I have made it several times, the whole time consuming thing means that it is rarely made in my real life. The obvious dilemma being, balsamic glaze is EVERYTHING and can and should be used in every meal possible. Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner. Dessert. Whether it makes sense or not, it should be explored.
On your oatmeal? HECK YES. Ham sandwich? DELISH. Chicken and veggie bowls? Peeeerfection. Scoop of ice cream to hit the spot? Slap you silly good. You are probably leaning more towards just wanting to slap me. Although justified, spend your time loving on DeLallo’s Balsamic glaze instead because it is the perfect drizzlability (<-I make up words when excited) consistency, taste of top quality balsamic vinegar and sweetened to absolute perfection. My brand crush is obvious, but with good reason ? You will be seeing this glaze make an appearance again in the future…you can count on that.
Snappy chopping, flavor layering, feta topping, balsamic glazing…what is there not to love about this veggie wonder?!
