Sheet Pan Pork Tenderloin With Greek Vegetables

By Carolyn Williams, PhD, RD | August 27, 2019 | Rally Health

While it’s the Mediterranean flavors that make this dish special, a serving also provides 32 grams of lean protein and plenty of vegetables to help you meet the federal government’s daily nutrition recommendations. Marinate the pork for at least one hour; you can also soak it for up to 24 hours, in the refrigerator, if needed. Serve with a whole grain like quinoa, or pair with lightly tossed salad greens.
