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.
