Getting Saucy with Vegetables

Simple sauces are a great way to make cooked veggies into a delightful, healthy meal. Start by simply cutting up some of your favorite veggies….broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery, zucchini, yellow crookneck squash, onions, eggplant, kale, cabbage, brussels sprouts…your options are endless! Then either bake, steam, or sauté them to your desired consistency. Then serve yourself a big bowl and top with one of the delicious sauces below. Enjoy this for lunch or dinner!

Make a Dish of all of your Favorite Veggies & Prepare them via the preparations below:

  • Steaming – takes only 10-15 min: just put cut up veggies in a steamer over boiling water
  • Baking at 450 for 30-45 min (can top with olive oil and your favorite spices…rosemary and thyme are my favorites, then add salt and pepper)
  • Sauté – in oil over medium-high heat until of desired consistency
