Savoury Eats

I was googling recipes for non-gluten eating a few days ago. While I didn't find quite what I was looking for, I did find a tasty looking vegetable dish. Here is my version of it.


Ingredients:

half a red pepper sliced
half a yellow pepper sliced
handful of broccoli chopped in large pieces
handful of cauliflower chopped in large pieces
two small yams washed and sliced lengthwise like fries
half a zucchini chopped in larger pieces
two medium carrots, peeled and sliced in long pieces

olive oil
cracked pepper
tuscan seasoning

After washing and chopping all the vegetables, toss them with olive oil cracked pepper and tuscan seasoning (recipe here).  You can eyeball the amounts. You  just need enough seasoning to taste and enough oil to coat the vegetables.
When done, place the veggies in a nice casserole dish and bake until the vegetables have enough crunch. I think I left mine for about 202-5 minutes in a 350ºF oven but you can experiment on this as I find that no ovens are created equal in terms of heat distribution.
The vegetables were very good and very filling. I didn't make a salad or any dessert that day. I just had my vegetables with two small hamburger patties (minus the bun) and was very full.



I was reminded yesterday that today is Earth Hour. This is a global call to action for business and individuals alike. During this hour one turns of all electricity from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. local time. Just think how much energy we can save around the globe when we all stop and turn off our power supply for one hour. At the same time, we can use this time to pray for others, meditate on God's Word and give thanks for all that we have.

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in 
Christ Jesus concerning you.

2 Thessalonians 5:18
