Simple Veggie Side Dish

Simple Veggie Side Dish

Need a quick and Simple Veggie Side Dish?  This is such a simple, but delicious way to make veggies. I know it doesn’t look like much, but it’s really so yummy!! I think it’s hard to think up sides and sometimes I want veggies fast and easy for the side instead of worrying about following a big recipe. Don’t you? We had this two months ago for the first time and I love it. The best part is you can use whatever veggies are in your house. Try onions, carrots, peppers, beans etc. I know there aren’t measurements, but don’t freak out. You can just play with it. You’ll be just fine.

  • It sounds good. My usual method of doing veggies to blanch in boiling water, put into ice-water to stop cooking, and serve with shallots, garlic…whatever suits the veggie…yours sounds so nice and simple!
