Today marks the anniversary of starting my job and my real adult life. What an appropriate time to write about boring, green adult food.
I actually thoroughly enjoy vegetables…and I really enjoy them when they’re easy to make. So, frozen vegetables it is. (Plus, they make it easier to make single servings of veggies.) I normally just steam them, but am willing to decrease the healthfulness by adding fat on occasion…if the end result tastes delicious.
And yes, these veggies taste delicious in the end.
1 tsp. toasted sesame oil
1 tsp. vegetable oil
2 tsp. minced garlic
1 Tbs. minced fresh ginger
10 oz. frozen vegetables (I used green beans, broccoli, watercress, and carrots in the pictured veggies)
2 Tbs. soy sauce
1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth
If desired, salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Then, add garlic and ginger, stirring for about a minute. Add the vegetables (no need to thaw) and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Then, add broth and soy sauce, cooking for about 2 more minutes, or until vegetables are tender but still crisp. Season to taste.
Use the extra sauce in the skillet to add some extra flavor to rice.
