how to saute vegetables: a non-recipe
'tis the season for fresh, local produce, and for getting in all those vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants! but what to do with all that crisp goodness? how will you get your kids (or your husband?) to eat those veggies? for that matter, if you yourself think vegetables are bland and boring, it's time to shake things up. this method creates delicious results for a variety of veggies. if you choose to mix your fresh vegetables, be aware that different vegetables require different cooking times.
vegetable of choice (snow peas, zucchini and/or summer squash, asparagus, cauliflower, broccoli, brussels sprouts, etc)
olive oil (about 1/2 tbsp per pound of veggies)
good salt (unrefined sea salt or himalayan pink salt)
fresh ground pepper
fresh minced garlic (cloves or from a jar)
white or red onion, thinly sliced
spices (dill, basil, italian seasoning, thyme, rosemary)
baby bella mushrooms, cleaned and chopped
bacon or canadian bacon, diced very small
strong cheese (shredded parmesan, feta, gorgonzola, blue, goat)
1-2 tbsp acidic liquid (lemon juice, balsamic vinegar)
wash and prep veggies according to preference..snap ends off peas and asparagus, halve brussels sprouts, chop zucchini chunks and broccoli florets). heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat and use a paper towel to spread it around to grease the pan. add the veggies, salt/pepper, onions, and garlic to the pan. for that matter, add everything you are using (mushrooms, other spices, bacon) except for the chicken broth, cheese and acidic liquid. cook until vegetables have absorbed the olive oil and the pan is starting to dry out. add 1/4c or so of chicken broth to the pan, and use the liquid to continue cooking the vegetables. continue cooking until vegetables are cooked to desired tenderness or crispiness, adding more chicken broth 1/4c at a time if necessary. add acidic liquid at the end of cooking time if desired, and cook until liquid is gone. sprinkle with cheese if desired, and serve immediately.

365 healthy-selfies day 167: sautéing some veggies. 😋 i’m trying to keep it interesting for plant paradox phase 1. i’ve done it for 3 days plus & am shifting between phase 1 and phase 2. i warmed up some walnut oil with garlic and shallots letting that simmer for a while. then i added onions and let them cook down & brown a bit. last i added the broccoli. i put a lid on so it would steam for a few minutes. walah! delish! #plantparadox#phase1#doctorgundry#cruciferousvegetables#onionsandgarlic#broccoli#walnutoil
