Potato, Green Bean Packets and Potato, Carrot Packets  

Total time: 30 minutes
     Vegetable packets are great for using up leftover bits in the fridge: carrots, celery, mushrooms, tomatoes...  They are cooking when you hear them sizzle, and are done when you can't hear them any longer.  They stay very hot in the packets, and can even be taken off early and left to finish off heat.

Potato and Carrot Packets

Total time: 35 minutes


     This is the 'catch - all' for vegetables. Anything works.  Use whatever bits are left in the fridge. This is one of my favorite low-cal, I ate too much over the week-end or when-ever, meals.  Add a few pieces of celery, some cherry tomatoes or half of a large tomato, mushrooms, whatever. This is the base recipe... Potato, Carrot Packets

 Ingredients:

 Instructions:

Note:  This is 'cooking by sound': When the packets start sizzling, they are cooking.  When they stop, they are done.... carrot potato But if they don't stop, check them after 25 minutes. 
Just open one part way and poke a knife into the potatoes.  They will continue to cook, after removed from heat, if left wrapped.
