A completely savory entry!

Here is my first completely original savory creation, which I hope you'll enjoy! Super simple and very tasty- even a day or two later re-heated as part of a leftovers potluck which my family is so fond of. :-)

Simple Veggie Saute

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 12 ounces asparagus, washed and cut into inch-long pieces
  • 1 medium zucchini, washed and cubed
  • 2 small yellow squash, washed and cubed
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, washed and cut into 1 inch x 1 inch pieces
  • 1 orange bell pepper, washed and cut into 1 inch x 1 inch pieces
  • 1 small eggplant, washed and cubed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic paste
  • 2 teaspoons tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in large saute pan on medium-high heat.
  2. Add chopped vegetables and stir to coat in butter.
  3. Let vegetables simmer uncovered for about 5 minutes, while in a small bowl you combine the garlic and tomato pastes, olive oil and garlic salt.
  4. Whisk together with a fork until the ingredients combine and drizzle over the pan of vegetables. Stir to incorporate.
  5. Let simmer for about 5 minutes, covered, and then add salt and pepper to taste, continually stirring.
  6. Cook for about 5-10 more minutes, or until vegetables become tender but do not let them get mushy.
  7. Remove from heat, stir again, and serve!
Happy Cooking! :-)
