Nutritional Facts

1 stuffed potato equals 586 calories, 23 g fat (15 g saturated fat), 59 mg cholesterol, 458 mg sodium, 87 g carbohydrate, 12 g fiber, 15 g protein.

Directions

  1. Scrub and pierce potatoes; place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 15 minutes or until tender, turning once.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the squash, zucchini, eggplant and leeks. Add salad dressing and toss to coat. Transfer vegetables to a grill wok or basket. Grill, uncovered, over medium heat for 8-12 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Sprinkle with salt and keep warm.

Editor's Note: If you do not have a grill wok or basket, use a disposable foil pan. Poke holes in the bottom of the pan with a meat fork to allow liquid to drain.
