Things to Eat - 6 Week Meal Plan

darcytroutman (1 of 1)

We had a lazy few weeks - dinners out, illness, lazy nights. But we still managed to try some great new recipes.


* 1 pound baby onions
* 2 pounds large cherry tomatoes
* 2 pounds new potatoes
* olive oil
* 1 can cannellini beans
* A small bunch of basil

1. Preheat oven to 415 degrees.
2. Put the onions in a bowl and cover them with boiling water. Use a slotted spoon to fish them out and peel back the skins. Cut the largest onions in half.
3. Spread the onions on a roasting pan with the tomatoes and halved potatoes. Season with salt/pepper. And olive oil
4. Roast for 1 hour, mixing every 15 minutes.
5. Remove from the tray from the oven and add the drained beans and basil, then roast for another 15 minutes.
