We all know vegetables are part of a healthy diet. They can also be boring. Many home cooks have a hard time figuring out new, exciting things to do with vegetables. The good news is, they’re actually super easy to make and amazingly versatile. Vegetables can be eaten as a snack, a side or a full meal. This Weight Watchers smart points recipe is proof of that!
I started doing Weight Watchers recently and I’ve found myself turning to their website more and more often to come up with dinner ideas my whole family will love.
I found these Greek Style Roasted Vegetables on the Weight Watchers website as a recipe that includes chicken. We loved the vegetables so much, we have them as a side all the time. Even our teenager raved about them! They go with everything!
Originally the recipe called for 5 teaspoons of oil and that brought the smart points up to 2 points per serving. I slowly cut back on the oil each time I made them and sure enough- they are great without the added oil! Now this dish is zero smart points and amazing!
The tangy lemon juice and artichoke hearts blend well with the cherry tomatoes and zucchini.
The best part of these vegetables is that one serving is 0 smart points and fills you up!
