boring old steamed veggies
is there any way to dress up steamed peas?
besides a cheese sauce or butter!
Peas with chopped fresh mint
Carrots with honey and ginger glaze, or dressed with sesame oil
Broccoli with olive oil and red pepper flakes
Why steamed? You want vitamins, take a pill.
I'm Southern ... I boil peas or carrots or limas gently with a bit of sugar, or microwave them with a bit of sugar thrown in (just a modest amount of water). Eat 'em with nothing added after that at all.
Same with broccoli, brussels sprouts - but no sugar. I think they're just fine without a single addition - no butter, nothing.
I give a high recommendation to Penzey's Mural of Flavor herb blend. It's high flavor and no salt, but the real selling point for me isn't health, it's taste. Great sprinkled on veggies.
how about sauteeing the brocoli and tossing with a bit of sesame oil. really pumps up the taste
