1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese


1. Bake potatoes. IN THE OVEN: Preheat oven to 375°F. Scrub potatoes and pat dry. Prick all over with a fork. Rub lightly with vegetable oil; sprinkle with salt.

Place potatoes on a microwave-safe plate; microwave on high 4 minutes. Turn potatoes over and microwave until a knife inserted in center of potato slides in easily, 6 to 8 minutes longer. Cooking time will vary depending on the microwave.

2. In a saucepan, bring 1 inch water to boil. Add 1/4 tsp. salt. Add carrot, broccoli and bell pepper. Cook until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Drain.
