Rice and veggies from the oven


An easy oven dish that is perfect for using up leftover vegetables.

The great thing about this dish is that you can use almost any kind of vegetables and still put a delicious meal on the table. If you have an oven-proof pan with a lid, it’s even easier: shortly fry everything, pour in the stock and put it in the oven. No oven-proof pan? No worries. Pour everything into a baking dish and cover with aluminum foil. Works just as well.

This dish is adapted from a dish from the Dutch Boodschappen magazine. Strangely enough, this is one of the few recipes where I add less vegetables than the original recipe describes, but that’s mainly because I adapted the recipe to make it suitable for 3 people.
