On a Budget: Potato and Green Bean Oven Dish

We are still eating fairly budget based. This means that we mostly cook for 2 days, and see what is on sale before I make my menu. A new habit I have picked up is running an ingredient through the search on Pinterest and see what I have in my collection of recipe I still want to try. This is how we still try new things while cooking on a budget. Btw, not only posts that are titled "on a budget" contain budget recipe. Click on the budget tag under this post, to see more budget recipes. Yesterday I already shared a recipe from Lekker en Simpel, and today's recipe is from the same site. I have a lot of recipes from that blog pinned because they are so easy and fast to make. Even though she does use meat in some of her recipes, she posts a lot of vegetarian things and other recipes are easy to adjust. Oven dishes may not be the first thing you think of when it is summer, but this one is very light.

Potato and Green Bean Oven Dish: (serves 2)
- 5 potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 200 gr green beans, in 3 cm pieces
- 10 cherry tomatoes, quartered
- 1 spring onion, in rings
- a handful of grated cheese
- 50 ml cooking cream
- 1.5 tsp paprika powder
- 0.25 tsp nutmeg
- salt & pepper

Boil or steam the potatoes and green beans, but leave them slightly undercooked. Place potatoes, beans, tomatoes and onion in an oven dish. Add cooking cream, with nutmeg, paprika and a pinch of salt & pepper. Mix well until the veggies are coated. Sprinkle some grated cheese on top. Place in a preheated oven on 180 degrees for about 15 minutes until the cheese has melted.

Also nice with other veggies, like cauliflower, broccoli or zucchini.
