here are some easy ways to make great veggies –
I LOVE fresh peas and I found I can enjoy them anytime by taking frozen peas and running them under hot tap water for a few minutes. Tastes like summer.
This does NOT work with other frozen veggies!!
this method works for any frozen vegetable I have tried or fresh peas, beans or carrots.
take a non stick frying pan
for every cup of vegetables add
1/2 teaspoon butter (optional)
salt to taste ( do not use any)
the amount of water you need will depend how long you need to cook the veggies (if you start running out of water – just add more)
place over high heat and boil off all the water
you might like to saute them for a moment as well but do NOT brown them
here are a few guidelines – you will have to decide when the veggies are done the way YOU like them
for frozen peas, carrots, beans or corn – about 5 minutes
frozen lima beans – 15 minutes
fresh beans or carrots – 15 minutes
Tip – I use bottled water for this – any contaminants will stay IN the veggies as you boil off the water
