I love making it. Just cut your vegetables extra thin and arrange them into a spiral shape in your dish. Dress it up with a little cheese and crumbled bacon (or not). It’s a delicious way to get your family to eat their vegetables and it’s a great side dish or a light meal on it’s own. Perfect served at any meal –  breakfast or brunch or lunch or dinner.

I can’t believe how simple this dishes is, yet so impressive.

How can such a simple dish be be addictive? This is a winner with the onions, garlic and fresh veggies. Easy to make vegetarian or vegan and gluten-free. You can’t go wrong with this one. Always a winner.
