Ingredients



Directions

You will need 5 microwave-safe food storage containers for daily meal prep.

Adjust oven racks to upper and lower level of oven. Preheat oven to 400°F and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

Cube potatoes, onion and carrots. In a large bowl, gently toss cubed veggies with 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 teaspoon seasoning and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Spread veggie mixture evenly on baking sheet. Bake on upper rack of oven for 10 minutes.

While potatoes, onion and carrots are baking, roughly chop peppers and broccoli. Slice sausages. In a large bowl, gently toss peppers, broccoli and sausages with 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon seasoning and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Spread mixture evenly on second baking sheet and set aside.

After 10 minutes, move the baking sheet with veggie mixture to the bottom rack of oven. Place the sheet with the sausage mixture on the upper rack of oven. Bake 20-25 minutes, until veggies are fork-tender. Remove both sheets from oven and set aside to cool.

Assemble meals: Microwave rice according to package directions. Combine the veggie and sausage mixtures in a large bowl, tossing gently to combine. Lay out five food storage containers. Divide rice evenly among containers. Divide veggie sausage mixture evenly among containers. Cover and refrigerate until ready to eat.

To reheat: Remove lid from container and place in microwave. Heat in one minute increments, stirring occasionally, until heated through. Enjoy!
