Create a delicious family meal with help from these easy sauteed vegetables.
Busy is an understatement. There are never enough hours in my day to do all the things that I need to accomplish. Not even close. Can you relate?
I’m excited to partner with Mirum to bring you my thoughts on quality meals this holiday season.
No matter how much I plan and use my time efficiently, there are always lots of things going on.
We’ve got special programs and events at school. Projects at work.
Of course, there’s always homework and piano practice.
And let’s not forget about my buddies laundry and meal prep… With three growing, active boys under my roof, there is no shortage of laundry and meal prep to be had. 😉
Oh, the meal prep. My boys eat enough for an army so I’m pretty sure I spend about 95% of my time in the kitchen.
So the name of the game for me has become making the most of each moment by making smart, efficient choices that make it easier to get everything done that I need to.
I also don’t want to sacrifice quality for my family. I want the very best for them. One way I’m making that happen is by working smarter in the kitchen.
The Make Meals That Do More products at Walmart help me to get quality meals on the table quickly while sticking to my budget. It also allows us to have those coveted evenings around the kitchen table together.
Another thing I’m loving on these busy days: Walmart’s Grocery Pickup. It enables me to quickly get the freshest ingredients for all my holiday and post-holiday cooking at an everyday low price. All the items I need without hours spent inside the store…. genius!
I’m also enlisting my boys for more and more help in the kitchen.
From taking care of groceries and dishes, to helping out with meal prep, cooking and clean up — meal time has become a family project that we all accomplish while working alongside each other.
I’m proud that my guys are learning to create great meals and that we are creating memories together while we do it.
I’m sure that my future daughters in law will thank me for the hands on training my guys got growing up!
These simple sauteed vegetables are the perfect side that all my kids love. Paired with a rotisserie chicken, it’s the perfect easy, fast meal for those busy nights where we’re running everywhere.
Not only is this sauteed vegetable medley delicious, it’s healthy too. Plus you can serve these veggies next to a meat, with pasta or over rice.
A little seasoning and spices can totally can change the flavor up as well. You could do vegetables for fajitas or Asian style for a whole different feel to the meal.
Ingredients for Sauteed Vegetables
This easy peasy side is best served fresh!
We’ll be using butter, an onion, Italian seasoning and assorted fresh vegetables like broccoli, carrots, bell peppers and zucchini.
There are lots of options to this versatile dish!
How to Season Sauteed Vegetables
I use salt, pepper and a dash of Italian seasoning most nights.
You could also do this recipe with garlic, with coconut oil, with olive oil or even with white wine.
How to Sautee Vegetables
Begin by melting the butter in large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
Sauté vegetables, onion and Italian seasoning, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisp and tender, about 8 minutes.
Top with remaining tablespoon of butter.
I love how gorgeous the color is for these as well. Proof that simple, fresh food can be so amazing.
