Easy to make, tasty and good for you all rolled into one!

"Vegetables", you say, "are so hard to make! I know they are good for me, but how can I make a preparation of vegetables that taste good? Who has the TIME to cook vegetables? Isn't it just easier to go out and eat?"

Well, it may be easier to go out to eat, but think of the extra money you are spending if you eat out too often. Vegetable preparations can be so quick and easy if you have the time and motivation to make them. Here is a quick preparation of frozen mixed vegetables you can buy in the frozen section of your local grocery store (By the way, this is my own easy style; you can alter it to your tastes):



1 bag of frozen mixed vegetables (corn, carrots, beans and peas or any other frozen vegetables)

1 medium sized mixing bowl that is microwave safe

1-2 tablespoons of butter or vegetable oil

1 tablespoon of each: black pepper, cinnamon powder, ginger powder, garlic powder, chilli/cayenne pepper

Salt to taste


In your mixing bowl, combine spices and oil/butter. Heat in microwave for 1 minute to heat butter/oil. Mix well. Next add frozen vegetables and heat in microwave for 5 minutes. Mix well and put in the microwave for another 2-3 minutes depending on your microwave's power.

Serves 4-6 people

(If you get the family sized bag of frozen vegetables, multiply your ingredient quantities by 2 and heat for the same times. Serves 8-12 people)


If you are one of those people who does not like using the microwave oven for cooking and preparing dishes, you can heat the oil or butter in a pan and then add your spices. Then add your frozen vegetables and mix well on low-medium heat until the vegetables have been heated thoroughly. Then turn the heat up to medium and sautee lightly. This may take some time based on your stove.

Once the vegetables have been sauteed well, remove from heat, add to a medium sized bowl and serve!

How do you make vegetables? I'd love to know so comments and thoughts are greatly welcomed!
