Sauteed Vegetables

There are a lot of different ways to make vegetables.  You can grill them.  Just toss them in olive oil and herbs and throw them on the grill to give them some char marks.  Grilling gives veggies a great, smoky flavor.  Steaming vegetables is a pretty easy way to make them, but steaming doesn’t give them much pizzazz.  Roasting vegetables happens to be my favorite way to make them.  I love the flavor of some good roasted veggies.

But the easiest way to prepare vegetables is to sauté them in a skillet.  I usually sauté them in a little bit of olive oil and butter, and add in plenty of herbs and salt and pepper.  It’s such an easy way to add vegetables to your dinner.
