What to do with a leftover veggie tray…

Good morning! I slept HORRIBLY last night. I was tossing and tuning all night long. It was terrible. UGH!
Last Friday, I hosted a potluck party and my friend Chelsea brought this HUGE veggie tray…
 Who doesn’t love veggies and dip?!
I had so much leftover and I didn’t want the veggies to go to waste. I took the broccoli and cauliflower and made them into roasted veggies. 
Roasted vegetables is one of the easiest side dishes you can make. All I did was toss the broccoli and cauliflower with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder and roasted them in a 350 degree oven for 40-45 minutes.
they came out crispy and delicious!
As you can see in the first photo, I had a ton of leftover cherry tomatoes. 
I turned them into homemade bruschetta!
Chop the tomatoes using a food processor (you can chop them by hand) and combine with salt, pepper, fresh garlic, olive oil, and basil (I used from my garden). I stopped by whole foods and got a loaf of Italian crusty bread and sliced it into one inch rounds. You can use whatever bread you like. Toast the bread in a 375 degree oven for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Assemble the bruschetta however you like and top with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.
When life gives you tomatoes, make bruschetta!

Other uses for your leftover veggies:
-saute and use in stir fry
-steam for a healthy side dish
-add to pasta
-put into tupperware and have on hand for snacking
What would you do with the leftover veggies?
Have a great day!
