The Ugly 300 Calorie Vegatable Tian

Another 300 calorie lunch I made!  Do not turn away from its hidious looks, it hides the flavor within!!  Also it is a good lesson in not judging a book by its cheesy, delicious cover!!

Ingredients: ( this will make TWO 300 calorie servings)

Also this takes a while to cook so don’t start it if you have just got done working out or something and are the kind of hungry that makes you want to rip the fridge door and inhale all the contents

2 silces whole wheat bread, toasted and turned to crumbs in a food processor.  You could use premade but i think toasting the bread yourself is so much better

2 tsp spices- i used marjoram and thyme and cayenne pepper but i put cayenne pepper in EVERYTHING even occasionally in my own eye, so you may want to omit it.  You CERTAINLY want to omit putting it in your eye.

mix those together, set aside

about 4 cups mixed vegatables FRESH not frozen.  Use the roasty kind- i used mushrooms, zuchinni and eggplant and roasted red pepper, but you could get crazy all up with yourself and throw in some sliced brussel sprouts or carrots or whatever is about ready to expire in your fridge or pantry. Slice them all up coin style.

One cup mixed shredded cheese- i used asiago, mozzarella and parmesan, but more heavy on the mozzarella for the gooey cheese i love you factor.

1/4 cup chicken broth- seriously not that much, just enough to moisten the veggies a touch, they have a lot of natural moisture that they will be cooking in. You could use beef broth too, or even white wine, or even just water if you wanted

I layered this in a loaf pan, 1/2 the veggies, half the breadcrumbs, half the cheese, repeat and drizzle the chicken broth over it.

Bake uncovered for about 50 minutes at 375 degrees.  Eat half when it is cool enough, let the rest sit for lunch the next day.

Happy Facehole Stuffing!!

Oh yum, this sounds awesome. Roasty vegetables. NOM NOM NOM! I have roast veggies to use up, plus emmentaler cheese so I may even make this today.

Also, I hate it when you get the kind of hunger when, as you say, you want to rip the refrigerator door off and inhale the contents. LOL!
