If you are trying to get your vitamins in for the new year – and save some money, too – we are going to show you how to make breakfast, lunch, and dinner from one pan of veggies. Ashley Tresoline, owner of Bella Foodie, came to show us how.

  • Preheat oven to 375ᵒ.
  • Toss chopped vegetables and chopped red onion with the 2tbs.
  • Olive oil and spread them out in a single layer.
  • Season vegetables with salt and pepper to taste and lay the thyme sprigs on top.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes until tender.

Breakfast:
Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a small skillet on medium-low, add ¼ cup portion of the roasted vegetables to one side of the pan. On the other side of the pan add an egg and cook to your desired style. Season egg with salt and pepper to taste. Optional: Garnish with chopped chives and red chili flakes.
