myFresha-licious: Buttered Veggies

Buttered Veggies

Aside from steaming and blanching vegetables.  I also cook veggies this way – buttered.

Though I seldom do it right now due to the calorie and fat content of butter. Anyway,

here’s a simple recipe for you to try:


Butter, salted - 10 g.

Cauliflower, cut into small pieces - 150 g.

snowpeas, sliced into diagonal wedges - 50 g.

carrots, diced - 1 medium

Garlic, crushed and chopped – 6 cloves

Cooking Procedure :

1) Melt Butter in low fire then saute garlic on it until it is aromatic.

2) Add the rest of the ingredients.  Let it simmer for 2-3 minutes.

Serve with any grilled fish, poultry, or red meat.

This is good for two servings. Estimated Nutritional  values per serving based on ingredients used.
