One of my favorite ways to prepare veggies is to saute them. It's pretty easy. I like to get a mixed bunch of vegetables. I typically get broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and snow peas. It works best if you have pan with a nice fitting lid. This will help trap in the moisture. On medium heat, add some olive oil to the pan. Then throw in your veggies. Make sure the vegetables get coated in the olive oil. You can add more oil on top of them as well. I found wooden spoons to help in mixing up the veggies the best. I like to add a touch of garlic or garlic salt. It enhances the flavors but don't put too much in that it over powers tastes. Add some regular salt as well. Stir every once in a while. It really depends on how much you're cooking as too how long you need to saute the veggies. Make sure you keep the lid on as much as possible. When the veggies have turned a brighter green (minus the cauliflower) then they are ready to go!
*The broccoli is what turns the brightest green. I usually gauge if they're done or not by the color of the broccoli. And yes, that's homemade fried chicken as well :)
