Veggie Wednesday

Wednesday is Veggie Night at my house.  The veggies either came from the farmers’ market or delivered by Farm Fresh to You. I grew the chives myself.

I sauteed the veggies in EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil):

  • Portabello Mushrooms
  • Asparagus
  • Bell Pepper
  • Bokchoy
  • Shallots
  • Fresh Garlic
  • Carrots
  • Chives (I have a little herb garden on my windowsill)
  • Half a lemon

The veggies were organic which made them very flavorful. The asparagus’ natural sweetness came out  when caramelized.

We have been doing Veggie Night Wednesday for almost a year now and it makes us feel a little better about eating healthy (and less guilty during Takeout Friday).

TIP:  I have two pans going on  where I saute the veggies to save time. Then I saute all the veggies altogether in one pan before I serve them. The only seasonings I add are garlic salt, lemon pepper, a squeeze of lemon and fresh chives.

Healthy and delicious weeknight dinner!
