Butcher Block Veggies and Fries

The perfect mix of healthy and indulgent! You won’t feel guilty when you balance out french fries with veggies!

Butcher block Veggies and Fries

What You’ll Need:

  • About 2 full leaves of kale, chopped
  • 1 cup of canned string beans (can also use fresh; either way, organic is preferred)
  • About 1 cup fresh (or frozen) broccoli florets
  • About 4-5 white button mushrooms, sliced (cremini mushrooms can be used also)
  • 1 bag of frozen crinkle-cut french fries (or make your own fresh fries!)
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons of essential seasoning blend**
  • Sriracha hot sauce (optional)

 

What to Do:

  1. Heat oven to required temperature and prepare french fries according to instructions on a large baking sheet.
  2. While french fries are baking, heat a medium-sized pan on low-medium heat with olive oil in it.
  3. Once hot, add broccoli to pan first (especially if using frozen; also, be careful of oil splatter!), then add in other veggies in 1 minute intervals, adding the kale last.
  4. Stir in essential seasoning blend.
  5.  Saute the veggies until kale is tender and onions are translucent and some of them have browned/caramelized a bit, approximately 5-7 minutes . You can stop the saute before the veggies begin to caramelize, but I love the caramelized flavor so I suggest trying it this way at least once! Remove from heat.***
  6. Transfer veggie saute to serving dish.
  7. Once french fries have cooked, serve on the side of veggies.
  8. If desired, add sriracha to veggies for extra flavor kick! Bon appetit!

 

** Essential seasoning blend can be found on the recipes page.

*** This veggie saute can be changed to incorporate veggies that you like! The ones I used are some of my favorite vegetables, but add in different ones to create your own butcher block veggie saute!
