I made a great dish for my supper tonight. A couple days ago I spent quite a while chopping vegetables so they would be read for salads. In one large bowl I had a mixture of lettuce and spinach. In another bowl I cut up broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, onions, and celery. I covered the bottom of a saucepan with water, brought that to a boil and added a bunch of the broccoli mixture. I then lowered the heat and covered the pan after I used some of Paula Deane's seasoning mixture she always uses (1 c. salt, 1/4 c. pepper, 1/4 c. garlic powder). The vegetables were done in about 10 minutes. While the vegetables were steaming I microwaved 2 veggie garden burgers and cut them into bite sized pieces. I poured the extra water off the veggies, added the veggie burgers, and a little butter for taste. I covered the pan for a few minutes after turning off the heat. I put this on my plate and sprinkled some shredded cheddar on it. WOW - was it good.
I like my salad vegetables to be chopped up rather small. The carrots and celery were sliced pretty thin. I sliced up some green onions tops and all. I like having all this done so that when I want a salad it doesn't take so long to get the salad together. If you try this I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
