Meatless Monday- Vegetables en Papillote

Vegetables en Papillote ( vegetables steamed in paper or foil)
1. Heat oven to 400 degrees
2. Place several vegetables of your choice in a large bowl (I used bok choy, sugar snap peas, Thai eggplant, and Brussels sprouts). Thinly slice 3 cloves of garlic, 3 shallots and about 1/2 inch of fresh ginger. Add to vegetables. Grate zest of one orange or lemon over the vegetables. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
3. Cut two large squares of aluminum foil or parchment paper. Spoon half of the vegetable mixture onto the foil and enclose like a package, but do not tightly close it. Do the same with the rest of the vegetables.
4. Place packages on a baking sheet into the oven and cook for about 15 minutes or until fork tender.
5. Open packages and enjoy with rice, pasta, on it's own or over a bean puree (That's what I attempted to do, but I will need to keep working on the bean puree-wasn't my favorite.  The vegetables however were soft yet still had a crunch and had a bright and fresh flavor form the garlic, ginger and orange.)
