Eating a healthy homemade dinner doesn’t get much easier than ONE TRAY OVEN DINNERS!
Nope not those nasty sodium loaded, highly processed frozen tray dinners. These tray dinners have fresh ingredients, good proteins, and are still EASY and require MINIMAL EFFORT.
How to make a one tray oven dinner
Pick one protein, 2-3 carbohydrates, olive oil and unlimited spices!
-Protein | Egg, tofu, chickpeas, beans, or animal source protein (chicken).
-Carbohydrates | Asparagus, brussels sprouts, red bell peppers, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potato (this one is filling so I would suggest pairing sweet potato with a lighter protein- egg, chickpea, beans, etc.).
-Spices | Garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, oregano leaves, paprika, salt, pepper, etc.
Add everything to baking sheet (one exception, see below) and top with olive oil and spices! Bake at 350 degrees F for approximately 30-45 minutes. You will know when everything is ready when it starts to brown on the outside.
Exception: Eggs (add to baking sheet in a mason jar ring on parchment paper for the last 10 minutes). Bake egg for less than 10 minutes if you like your eggs runny. FYI I used a large mason jar ring however medium sized ones would work as well!
Three Recipe Ideas
1. Tofu & Veggies
1 package of firm tofu, cut into cubes
Spices | Garlic powder, salt and pepper
*Most vegetables roast best on aluminum foil and tofu bakes best simply on the baking sheet. I covered half the baking sheet with aluminum foil and placed the vegetables of this.
2. Eggs & Veggies
Red Bell Pepper
Spices | Paprika, salt, pepper
3. Sweet potato wedges with chickpeas and veggies
1 medium sweet potato
1 cup chickpeas
Spices | Garlic powder, oregano leaves, salt, pepper
