Sheet Pan Meals

Recipe by: Dr. Michael Greger
Sheet pan meals can be an easy, versatile way to check off the Daily Dozen! Add your favorite veggies, beans, and sweet potatoes to a pan and toss on your favorite herbs/ spices. Serve the dish on its own, over whole grains (like quinoa or oat groats) or greens (like baby kale or arugula). Top with a homemade tahini or cashew dressing, such as the Ranch Dressing from the How Not to Diet Cookbook. Here's a recipe you can follow, but feel free to do your own variation!
