Neat Recipe – Garlic Roasted Vegetables with Mini neatballs



6 cup vegetables, diced in small ½” pieces (Squash, carrots, onion, eggplant, celery, bell pepper, sweet potato, whatever you have on hand!)

½ cup olive oil

Salt & Pepper

6 cloves garlic, minced

1 package neat Italian, neat egg

½ parmesan cheese, or vegan cheese

1 cup vegetable stock

Optional: Serve over Quinoa, Rice, or Pasta

Preheat oven to 450. In a large bowl, toss vegetables in olive, garlic, and add salt and pepper to taste. Line a deep cookie sheet with sides or a deeper roasting pan with a silicone non-stick mat or spray with cooking spray. Arrange the veggies in a single layer on the sheet or pan and roast at 450 for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix the packet of neat Italian, with 2 eggs or substitute (neat egg), and ½ cup parmesan cheese or vegan cheese. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the mixture is thoroughly moistened, yet still formable. Make 12-15 mini meatballs, approximately the diameter of a quarter or smaller.

After the veggies have cooked 20 minutes, remove the tray from the oven. Place the mini neatballs on top of the veggies. Pour 1 cup of vegetable stock over the neatballs and the veggies. Cook the veggies and neatballs for 10-12 minutes, until the neatballs are cooked through and the veggies are browning on the edges. Serve over quinoa, rice, or pasta, or makes a filling and healthy meal just as the veggies and neatballs!
