Summer Vegetables in Parchment Paper

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 15 mins

Parchment paper is a great way to use less fat in cooking and still end up with a tasty dish. Notice that you are cutting each piece of the parchment paper into a heart shape. Other vegetables that I think you could use: chayote, mushrooms, asparagus, or spinach. After looking at some other veggie parchment recipes, I think 375 degrees for 20 minutes might work too. Maybe you are like me--- love oven meals so that is why I am putting the oven/time variation here. If you do not have parchment paper use foil, but parchment is prettier. :)

Wow! The smell coming from the oven was intoxicating! This is a lot like ratatouille cooked in the oven, with less liquid. This tastes wonderful, and has a beautiful presentation. I'll do this again....thanks for sharing!

I made two rectangle packets and it worked great. By the time I folded it, it was more half-round shaped. But no matter, the fresh steamed delicious veggies is what counts. This is a nice recipe to keep the dull out of cooking because while you can use the microwave, it's nice to do it old school every now and then. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
