Veggie-Stuffed-Baked-Potatoes

Veggie Stuffed Baked Potatoes

Crunchy carrots, sautéed onions and tangy feta cheese contrast beautifully in these stuffed baked potatoes. Kids will have fun poking holes in the potatoes before baking and crumbling the feta to stuff the potatoes during assembly. This recipe was inspired by a meal idea on The Family Dinner website.

Adult: Preheat an oven to 450 degrees.

Kid: Prick the potatoes several times with a fork. Place the potatoes on the baking sheet and sprinkle with a little salt.

Adult: Place the potatoes in the oven for 45 minutes-1 hour, or until the potatoes are tender. Set aside to cool.

Adult: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Peel the carrots and cut them bite size. Cut the broccoli into bite sized florets and set aside with the carrots.

Kid: Snap the ends off of the green beans and set aside with the other veggies.

Adult: Add the vegetables to the boiling water and cook for about 3 minutes, or until their color brightens, but still maintain their crunch. Remove the vegetables with a slotted spoon, transfer to a bowl and set aside.

Adult: When the potatoes have cooled, slice them open.

Kid: Crumble the feta cheese between the 4 potatoes.

Adult: Place the canola oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté for about 3-5 minutes, or until it starts to color. Add the garlic and sauté 1-2 minutes more, or until the garlic becomes fragrant. Transfer to the bowl with the vegetables.

Kid: Divide the broccoli, carrots, green beans, onions and garlic between the 4 potatoes. Serve 1 veggie stuffed potato per person, sprinkle each with chopped parsley and enjoy!
