Side Dish

Colorful Vegetable Mix

 As you’ve probably come to know, my family is terrible with getting in our veggies. To be honest, I’m probably the worst one! However, I absolutely LOVE squash and zucchini. Whether sauteed or breaded, it’s just a great treat for me that I’d even eat as a snack. This Colorful Vegetable Mix is one of those that I often make, especially when squash is on sale, and can serve it with a whole bundle of main dishes. It’s so flavorful, but not overpowering of other foods you put with it. Tasty plus flexible (oh, and super easy)? Yes, please!
Colorful Veggie Mix / Busy Mom's Helper

1 medium Yellow squash, sliced
1 medium Zucchini squash, sliced
4 tsp. Olive oil
1 1/2 cups Sugar snap peas
1 1/2 cups Cherry tomatoes, halved
3 tbsp. Parsley, minced
3 tbsp. Lemon juice
1/2 tsp. ground Coriander
1/4 tsp. Salt
Dash of pepper, to taste

Saute the squash and zucchini with olive oil in a large non-stick skillet until beginning to turn tender, about 3-4 minutes.

Add the peas and tomatoes and cook until the squash is desired tenderness (I usually do in between crisp-tender, which is about 2-3 minutes once these are added).

Sprinkle the parsley, lemon juice, coriander, salt and pepper and toss to coat evenly.


Notes: I also tried this with Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top, and it was delightful!
