Quick and Easy Side Dish
I'm always trying to figure out healthy & easy side dishes to serve with dinner that my family will eat.
This dish I make is something my mom used to throw together growing up and I've just tweaked it a bit. The best thing about it is you can include whatever you want or like!
I call it Veggie Saute and its soooo good. If you have leftovers of this, the 2nd day is even better after those flavors really marinate together...mmmm!
This is great if you have a bunch of veggies laying around that you need to use up or only have a few of each...chop them up and add them to the mix. That way the veggies don't go to waste!
Ingredients that I use:
*Remember you can add whatever veggies you choose
*any amount of veggies that you want, its up to you
-any peppers you choose
-3-4 garlic cloves pressed/diced
-red pepper flakes
Add your Olive Oil to a saute pan and cook your garlic for a few mins.
Then add all your veggies (chopped) and seasonings...I love a kick so I add a good amount
of red pepper flakes.
Cook over medium heat until veggies soften up to your liking, stirring well every few minutes.
If you are in a rush put a lid on the pan so the veggies cook down faster.
You can do this with fresh or store bought veggies....here's the secret though (shhhh ok)? No matter whether you use fresh or store bought you cannot really tell because you are sauteing it down with flavorful seasonings. So what's that mean?
You can make this all year long and its super healthy for you and EASY!!!!
Ta Da! Yum Yum...now here is the kicker...listen closely ok??
If you like cheese...sprinkle a bit of shredded mozzarella on the mixture while warm so it melts a bit and then serve. YUMMO! Course you don't have to use cheese, but it adds a special sumpin' to the mix!
Easy to make, cooks up quickly and its healthy! Yum Yum!
