How to Make a Vegetable Medley Dinner
How about making a mélange of vegetables, I am not going to tell you how much to use. There is the photo, figure it out but the method that is what we are going to do. My method is going to be a little different than others. We are going to steam each of the vegetable separately since I take a different amount of time to cook. Place them in the steamer, a high flame, we will cover this up. How long does it take? A few minutes, all you need to do, just check it with an item like this. Just pierce the vegetable when it comes out easy, it is done. We are going to do this to the string beans, the carrots, the zucchini, but not the mushroom and tomatoes. They will be sauted together. All the vegetables will be added to that, it will be a beautiful dish.
Now add a little more flavor and color, some red pepper and onion. Can’t go wrong with those items? Now why am I doing it like this? Look at the broccoli, nice and green and tender. I will take the broccoli out, just set it aside. I could have sautéed everything together but you have less shrinkage and a nice looking dish. Well, the vegetable is steamed and the pan is smoking, it is hot ready to go. We are going to add the other vegetables. Let’s push those onions in there, mushrooms, hold that pan of peppers a minute, and put the tomatoes in there. Put in a tablespoon of minced garlic, one teaspoon of sea salt, ¼ teaspoon of black pepper. You can also put some fresh thyme in there, basil, oregano, whatever you like. You season it the way you want. Put it in a nice plate that first vegetable.
High heat, always continuously stirring so everything is evenly cooked and those tomatoes soften up a little, they are now and the onions. I like everything on ten plates; away the peppers, the rest of the vegetables that we had steamed and we have another minute as soon as it gets hot and we are done. And now as I am looking at the amount of vegetables that are here, I am thinking there is not enough salt so I just taste one item. You know what, that’s a pleasant flavor. Everything is so fresh. Look, nothing is over cooked; nothing is breaking up, beautiful green colors. Take this, place it in a large bowl, bring it on the table and enjoy your meal.
