You have to ‘adult’ somehow, right? Usually adulting means cooking your own meals (especially annoying when you work full-time and the last thing you want to do when you get home is cook up a feast) though the feast would be nice if it was just there ready to eat when you got home. Adulting usually means getting in your daily serving of veggies, too.
I’m going to tell you how I cook up a huge load of veggies that taste delicious and will certainly promise leftovers for the next day. There is definitely people out there that would do this already, but this is my blog so I’m giving you tips & tricks on how I do things.
So with this recipe, you can pretty much use any veggies you want, so mix it up and do it the way you would most enjoy it.

You can definitely swap veggies out, some examples to use:
