Not-Your-Every-Day Veggie Bake

If you roast chickens as much as we do, then your refrigerator is probably brimming with gelatinous, fatty drippings too.  You know what I’m talking about … that fatty, salty, sometimes gooey, yummy liquid on the baking tray once the chicken is done.  Somewhere along the way, when I had too much of it on hand, I decided to pour it over a tray of veggies, in place of oil/butter, and bake away.

And now, making a veggie bake any other way seems criminal!

First let me briefly tell you the nutritional benefits of the drippings (gelatin/fat)

  • Feeds, repairs and calms the mucosal lining of the small intestines.
  • Heals the nervous system.
  • Improves digestion.
  • Reduces allergies.
  • Helps better utilize complete proteins that are consumed.
  • Contains vital minerals such as magnesium, calcium and potassium from the bones, marrow and cartilage.
  • Useful in treating many illnesses, including digestive disorders like hyperacidity, Crohn’s, and colitis, and chronic disorders including anemia, diseases of the blood, muscular dystrophy, diabetes, and cancer.
  • Relaxes.
  • Strengthens.
  • Gives the most amazing flavor!

Cheap.  Simple.  Nutritious.  Filling.  Satisfying.  Can Feed Many.  Enjoy.
