College Menu: Colorful Vegetable Bake Recipe [Revised]

As college students, we always complain that we don’t have enough time to cook or eat well. In fact, I’ve said this more times than I can remember. However, for my health’s sake and perhaps my wife’s happiness, it’s been a couple of days now that I’m in some sort of cooking mood.

So I did what I do best, that is Google things, and I found the following Colorful Vegetable Bake recipe from allrecipes.com:

Ingredients

  • 3 cups frozen cut green beans, thawed and drained
  • 2 medium green peppers, chopped
  • 6 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 3 cups chopped zucchini
  • 1 cup biscuit/baking mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup milk

Directions

  1. Place beans and peppers in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Top with tomatoes, cheese and zucchini. In a bowl, combine the biscuit mix, salt, cayenne, eggs and milk just until moistened. Pour over the vegetables.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 55-60 minutes or until puffed and a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
I’m not going to lie though, the chopping takes a little bit of work. But after that, you can just put it in the oven and continue studying! I did make some changes though: I used fresh green beans, 5 roma tomatoes (instead of 6 plum), red bell peppers (instead of green), added garlic and a yellow onion, and we did it for 50 minutes.
This is how it turned out:

I got skills, don’t I?

Edit (5/10): Forgot to mention that I doubled the salt and the cayenne pepper, and added Italian herbs (but you can do this to taste).
