Broccoli Stir Fry mix & Roasted Garlic Potatoes

Happy Thursday!

Frozen veggies and fruits have become a life saver lately. I try to visit farmers markets often to grab "fresh" food but I somehow always end up wasting more than I use. I still haven't mastered how to store food in fridge so it lasts longer. Looking at plenty of how to videos for sure so let's see what happens.

In the meantime like I said frozen has come in very handy and last night when I was tired and wanted nothing to do with the kitchen this is what I put together...

Thursday's Treat...Broccoli Stir Fry mix & Roasted Garlic Potatoes

Ingredients:
-potatoes
-bag of frozen veggies
-salt
-pepper
-onion powder
-garlic powder
-olive oil

I used 4 large potatoes for 3 people, cut into cubes and placed in a large bowl. Added 1/4tsp pepper, 1/4 tsp onion powder,1/2tsp  garlic powder and 1/2 cup olive oil mixed and let sit for a few while I got toaster oven ready. Great thing about cooking is you get to play around with taste so if you want to add or remove to suit your taste you totally can :)
I sprayed baking tray with Pam turned oven to bake on 425 for 30 minutes and laid the cube potatoes on the baking tray.


Half way through I turned the potatoes a bit just for color on both sides and dropped the veggies in the bowl with remaining seasoning from potatoes. Sometimes time doesn't allow us to thaw things out but I find with frozen veggies its totally fine especially if your steaming or cooking in low water for several minutes in my case 1/2 cup water, pinch of salt medium heat 10 minutes. I checked for flavor and added another pinch of garlic powder but you can adjust seasoning to desired taste. What was left in bowl was fine as well.

Total of 30 minutes I had great delish meal, easy cleanup and healthy. Lil mama was very happy she walked threw the door from school and the food was done. Enjoy!

Always stress free xo
