Spice Up Your Veggies

My father- and mother-in-law used to get food from this one food truck all the time and he had great veggies so they asked how he made them. She shared the recipe with us and it is so good! I find that I have to make twice as many veggies as I used to because everyone loves them so much!

Here is how they are made:

Ingredients:
veggies (I used four squash/zucchinis in two batches that I sliced before started)
1 chicken bouillon cube
1-2 Tbsp of olive oil
1/2 Tbsp dried onions
1/2 Tbsp minced garlic


Start by heating up the oil in your pan on medium/high heat. Place the bouillon cube in to dissolve. Once that is heated up add your vegetables (see list of veggies that could work below).

Cook for around 5 minutes stirring frequently. I waited until my squash was starting to darken and get translucent. I then added the onions and garlic. Make sure you wait to add these because they will burn.


I made these last night for dinner and they were delicious! If you make them in smaller batches they cook more evenly and don't get soggy. Doesn't this look like the perfect summer meal?




Veggies that would work with this recipe:

  • Green beans- frozen works better but we have also made this recipe with canned. Just make sure to use no salt added. 
  • Asparagus
  • Squash/zucchini
  • Corn (same as green beans with the no salt added) We used butter instead of olive oil and they tasted just like roasted corn on the cob
  • Broccoli
What other vegetables do you think this would work with?

Mushrooms, sweet potatoes (cook time needs to be longer), Brussels sprouts, and carrots. Looks yummy!
