Green Beans and Carrots: Cook green beans and carrots until tender unless you use frozen or canned. Add olive oil, lemon to taste.
Caramelized Carrots: (Aprox 4 carrots per serving = 2 tblspn Butter and 2 tbspns Sugar) Slice carrots thin so they cook faster, put in frying pan with butter until tender, then add sugar and cook until browned on the edges.
Broccoli and Lemon: Cook broccoli until tender unless you buy frozen which is fine, add butter and lemon to taste.
Zucchini and Yellow Squash: Cook both until tender, drain, add lemon, olive oil and serve with parsley.
Mashed Sweet Potatoes: Peel and cook potatoes until tender, drain, mash, add butter or olive oil, top with parsley.
Stuffed Tomatoes: Using leftover stuffing from my previous hub titled, "Bacon Wrapped Turkey with Rosana's Orange Almond Rice Stuffing", fill tomatoes that you hollow out, put tops back on, stick in oven or toaster oven for about 10 minutes or until tomatoes are soft and skin starts wrinkling.
Mushrooms in Turkey Au Jus: Mushrooms don't need to be cooked too long, just put them in a pan with some turkey gravy from the pan until mushies get mushy and floppy like a noodle. Top off with some rosemary, parsley or cilantro.
