Sunday Best Bowl of Veggies

The only thing better than a big bowl of grilled & roasted veggies is having extras for the week

Simple, Fresh and delicious!

After a week of eating away from home a lot, it felt good to spend some time this afternoon getting back to basics and prepping a bunch of simple food that doubled as dinner & meal prep.

We did a combination of grilling, roasting and sautéing which was efficient – but a bit messy! And now have a fridge full of veggies, quinoa, chicken and salad dressing.

This was my plate: Roasted Portobello Mushrooms, Grilled Eggplant, Roasted Cherry Tomatoes, Sautéed Swiss Chard from my garden, quinoa, avocado and Easy Balsamic Vinaigrette for dipping.
