Organic Veggie Giveaway and Roasted Garlic Zucchini and Tomatoes recipe!

If you’re like our family and you’re trying to eat healthier and more organic, then I have a giveaway and an offer for you!

Door to Door Organics is a delivery service that brings a wonderful variety of the freshest organic fruits, vegetables and groceries direct to people’s homes, schools and workplaces all year long. Simply sign up for their produce box, and then you can add any number of things to your order from their shop tab.

You can also start your own co-op, which are organized groups of Door to Door customers that either save money or donate to charities by having their boxes delivered to the same location. Once you have 4 or more members, members receive a $3 discount off each box, or Door to Door Organics donates 10% of the box price.

I wish I could take credit for this recipe – but as usual I got it off my favorite recipe site All Recipes! I love All Recipes because they rate the recipes and people make comments and suggestions. If you have a ton of zucchini from the summer this is a yummy recipe and my kids liked it – which is one more step toward healthy eating in our family! Oh, and the pictures are my results! 🙂 Door to door Organics has some yummy recipes in their new kitchen too!

Ingredients

  • 2 zucchini cut in half lengthwise, then cut into 1/2-inch half moons
  • 2 cups quartered ripe tomatoes
  • 1/2 onion, minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9×13 inch baking dish.
  2. Combine the zucchini, tomatoes, onion, garlic, and red pepper flakes in the prepared baking dish. Drizzle with the olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and mix well.
  3. Place in preheated oven. Roast until vegetables are tender and slightly golden, about 18 minutes. Remove from oven; sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese and basil.

Comments

  1. I love me some veggies too! We’re pretty good about eating a lot of them, but trying to make healthier changes by actually switching to straight up organic. It’s quite the process!

    PS – Your recipe looks delish!

    • Thanks! We are terrible about it, so I’m trying to prove to my family that there’s a lot to love!

  2. I am doing yoga a few times a week, and paying attention to labels. Would LOVE to try an D2D Organics!

  3. I am going to start to use #mealplanning to try to reduce the number of times we rely on fast food or frozen pizza during soccer season.

  4. I am not a big veggie eater, but I want my kids to be. I try to cut up small pieces to add to sauces.

  5. We’ve eliminated everything with artificial colors and flavors, as well as corn syrup from our pantry and fridge – shopping at Vitamin Cottage a lot more these days.

    We shop our local farmers market and cook with the produce.

    I’ve been drooling over them since I first heard of their existence!! But with the move and what not, we were waiting until we got moved to give them a try. Your contest was a great nudge! 🙂

    • Lucretia Pruitt says:

      And I was trying to say “we’re getting healthier by keeping fresh produce around and buying organic and local whenever we can” but I have this weird phenomena where my child shows up and needs something whenever I’m in the middle of typing anything. 😉

  8. I love to grill, so the best way for me to keep the family eating veggies and me with my tongs in front of my favorite cooking surface is to get a grilling pan, cover it in tin foil and cook up some sliced peppers, onions,potatoes and garlic. The kids love to eat them raw and love them even more when they are grilled in spices. It’s a win-win for everyone.

  9. awesome giveaway.

    We keep trying to get our kids to eat as healthy as we do – we talk about “eating a rainbow” and what vitamins and minerals foods contain. Also, my girls godmother can introduce anything and my kids will eat it — coconut ice cream last week. I think I’m going to hire her.

  10. June Hicks says:

    We were just having this discussion at the dinner table last night. We have to try to get more veggies in our diet. The kids love them when we do, I just feel too busy / lazy to always have great veggies on hand for them. Unfortunately processed food is quicker. I need help!!

  11. Katharine says:

    We eat healthier with the kids by insisting they have a “rainbow” of foods on their plate and they can choose what foods they want to complete their rainbow. If they don’t want to finish their green peas…. it’s easier to say, well that is what your choice for the green in your rainbow so you need to eat them all!

    Simply ensuring there’s a vegetable served with every meal:) No chips!
