This sheet pan dinner is a new favorite at our house! It can be on your plate and in your mouth in under an hour (depending on how fast you slice those veggies). If you’re a weekend meal prepper this is a perfect dish to chop veggies ahead of time and then assemble and pop in the oven day of. Boom, making it easy.
Mix-up leftovers by filling a tasty grain free tortilla from Siete Foods for lunch, or throw a poached egg on top and some wilted greens underneath for a quick and easy breakfast.
It’s okay if your veggies are piled on top of each! Just be sure to toss them with the olive oil and spice blend and nestle the meat on top.
Paleo, primal, low-carb deliciousness. Minimal dishes and the whole meal is ready at the same time!
