Garlic Sautéed Vegetables- My way

So the dinner was these sautéed vegetables. I love them as they are quick, healthy and so colourful , just my type of food 🙂 .You can serve it as a side dish in lunch or dinner but I like to have it in a la carte style. Recipe is very simple but needs a little precaution while sautéing the vegetables so that they are not overcooked or mushy so I am going to tell you my way of preparing this yummy and healthy meal 🙂

Ingredients:

1/2 Cup Broccoli florets

2 Cloves Garlic, crushed

1 Cup Bell peppers(Red & yellow) cut in to square pieces

1/2 Cup Mushroom , cut in halves

1/2 Cup Zucchini , cut in roundels (You can also add Aubergine, carrots, spinach, baby corn or any vegetable of your choice)

1/2 Cup Spinach,chopped

1 tbs Olive Oil

Seasoning:

Salt and Crushed pepper as per taste

Rosemary ,Thyme, Parsley or Oregano 

Method:

– Add olive oil in non stick skillet and let it heat on medium flame.

– Add garlic and sauté it till it becomes golden brown

– Add vegetables in it based on their cooking time for eg, if you are using carrots, potatoes or onions, add them first because they take longer time to cook, Broccoli, Zucchini &

Bell peppers considerably take lesser time and if you are using green vegetables like spinach or any other green leaves, they should be added at the last.

– As per the my ingredients, I added broccoli first and sautéed it, then mushroom, bell peppers & zucchini and spinach at the end.

Stir them once or twice and let them cook until the vegetables are tender (max 5 minutes) and make sure they are not overcooked.

–  Remove from heat and sprinkle with salt & pepper and seasoning of your choice. I  like to have it with a quick yogurt dip( Greek yogurt+ 1 tsp olive oil+ crushed garlic + dried dill+ red bell pepper powder+ salt)
