Tonight’s Vegetable Dish…


Layered Roast Vegetables

I may be overstating the servings on tonight’s side dish, the three of us had a slice and came back for a second serving.  So if you like it as much as we did, this may only serve 3.  Check it out…

Layered Roast Vegetables

Ingredients:

2 medium zucchini

1 onion

1 red bell pepper

½ teaspoon onion powder

¼ – ½ teaspoon salt

6 slices reduced calorie bread

¾ cup egg substitute

½ cup grated parmesan cheese

Directions:

  1. Slice zucchini into long strips about ½ inches thick.  Slice pepper into long strips about the same width as the zucchini.   Cut onion into slices.
  2. Spray a roasting pan with cooking spray and add vegetables in a single layer then spray top of vegetables with cooking spray.  Sprinkle vegetables lightly with salt. 
  3. Sprinkle onion powder on zucchini and pepper strips.
  4. Roast vegetables for about 15 minutes until browned.  Remove from oven and reduce oven heat to 375o.
  5. Spray a bread pan with cooking spray.  Add a layer of vegetables on the bottom, sprinkle a little cheese on top, add 2 slices of bread then pour about ¼ cup of egg substitute on top.  Continue to layer the vegetables, cheese, bread and egg substitute 2 more times, ending with vegetables (they will be added 3 additional times).
  6. Cover dish with foil and add a heavy weight on top (I use a brick covered in foil).  Bake in the oven for 45 minutes or until set.

  8. Serve warm.
