This recipe was inspired by my dear friend and fellow NTP, Christie Banners. She had given me a formula awhile back and I’ve tweaked it to fit my family’s likes. The beautiful thing about this recipe is that you can modify it to work with any vegetables you have around, or if you need to use up random veg in your crisper drawer. It’s also a super simple one-pan meal and very quick to throw together. And by the time it’s finished baking, your kitchen is already cleaned up. This is really only a formula – I’ve used countless veggie combinations and all of them have been amazing!

1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups of other assorted chopped veggies (fennel, mushrooms, cauliflower, green beans, broccoli, etc.)
3-4 cups dark greens or cabbage, shredded
2 T avocado oil or olive oil
1 C bone broth, organic chicken stock, or water
Salt and pepper to taste
