If you want to get the most from your eight ounces of cooked vegetables, don't boil them, it causes them to absorb water, bake them, it dries them out. (Hat tip to my sponsor)
Spray a pan and place mixed sliced veggies in. I like to use mushrooms, eggplant, onion, and peppers. Bake at 350 for a long time. Season with salt pepper, garlic salt, paprika. Yum!

Note: egg yolks can pop while cooking, cover or prepop it.

I came home tonight after working 11 hours straight, and I had no time to cook. I pulled out of the freezer:
4 ounces cooked tomatoes
4 ounces cooked barley
4 ounces cooked cauliflower
put them in a pot with a lot of water and spices (curry, garlic, onion powder, salt pepper, and chili) 5 minutes later it was a yummy soup!

Cook onions, carrots and squash in a pan till soft. Weigh out 4 ounces and put it in a small crock pot with 4 ounces of cooked tomatoes and 4 ounces of cooked barley. Add a cup of water. Cook on low all day. Season with salt, pepper, garlic, curry or chili powder to taste.
You can also add your 4 ounces of meat and one more cup of water.
Bake in a roasting pan:
Lots of mushrooms and onions for about an hour at 350.
Measure out 8 ounces and put it in a small crock pot with 4 ounces of cooked barley and a cup of water before you leave for work and you will come home to a pot of yummy soup. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
If you want a bigger pot of soup, you can put in your 4 ounces of cooked meat and another cup of water. It is very satisfying, but you don't get your separate protein.
Spray Baking Pan andBake at 350 for about an hour:
4 red peppers
1 large red onion
2 medium eggplants
1 large box mushrooms
Procces together with an imersion blender, and it becomes an amazing spread.
Season to taste with salt, pepper, garlic powder.
