V is for Vegetable Recipes that are Quick and Easy

Here are some of my favorite vegetable recipes:

Minted Glazed Carrots
Boil peeled and cut up carrots (Because I'm lazy, I use a bag of already peeled baby carrots)
Drain water, add 1/4 cup of butter or oleo and 1/2 cup of sugar.
Cover and heat on low until glazed.
Just before serving add 2 T. mint flakes

Broccoli with Walnuts
Heat 2 T. olive oil in a wok.
Add 1 t. minced garlic
Cook for 30 seconds
Add 1 head broccoli cut up into florets and stir fry until tender
Sprinkle with 1 T. walnuts
Easier:  use frozen broccoli.  Cook, sprinkle with garlic salt and walnuts

Spinach with Raisins
Heat 1T. olive oil in large skillet for 30 seconds
Add 1 t. garlic
