Happy Meatless Monday – this vegetarian sheet pan dinner of a Mexican kale salad is going to be your new favorite super easy dinner to prepare.
Ok, so oh my gah on this vegetarian dinner, it is so delicious! I had zero intentions of sharing the recipe as a post-I was just making dinner after a busy day at work. I literally came home and opened my freezer and thought “hmmm…what can I make for dinner with things I have?”
I saw a bag of frozen kale and a bag of Mexican blend frozen corn and peppers, then opened my pantry and found a can of black beans and a lone ripe avocado on the counter. I love to stock frozen veggies because at least once or twice during the week I’ll draw a blank on what I want to make for dinner and just stand with my freezer door open, staring to see what I have and wait for inspiration to strike. I was thinking I was going to make something Mexican themed and literally just put ingredients on a sheet pan and went from there. While the vegetables cooked, I decided to make a green avocado sauce to go with the vegetables and used some fresh cilantro from my garden (yay to summertime herb gardens – mine is small but I love being able to walk outside and pick fresh herbs to use.)
The meal came together so much better than I could have hopped for. It was so delicious, and I added some tortilla chips which added a nice little crunch. It was a bowl of deliciousness and I loved how easy it was to make.
So of course I made it a again, and then again, and finally was like ok, I need to share this recipe- it’s an awesome sheet pan dinner (or do you say sheet pan supper?) and is great for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. It’s super flavorful and sooo good!
This recipe makes two big salad bowls, or four small ones if you’re eating something else on the side.
