Remember the Chicken with Garlic Cream Sauce I wrote about last week? Well I wasn’t done there. We needed a side dish and I had the garlic out already so, we got garlic vegetables!

This is a ridiculously easy dish to make. I make variations of it all the time because it is quick, and I can add some extra flavor to appease the large child living in my home who doesn’t like to eat his veggies. That would be my husband for any of you wondering.

First, cut any veggies you have in the house. That night we had onion, green peppers and zucchini. I went for the “chunk” size. Don’t dice or mince. You could use carrots, any variety of bell pepper, potatoes, squash, or whatever else you think sounds good. Spread your cut vegetables onto a pan.

In an incredibly small pot, I melted a stick of butter. You could use more or less if you like. I added 2 cloves of minced garlic and seasoned with salt and pepper.

Once it is all mixed together, pour the mixture over the vegetables. I tossed everything just to make sure the butter sauce was distributed evenly. If you don’t want to melt the butter on the stove, you can get the same effect in the microwave.

You can see I used quite a bit of pepper.

Bake at 350 degrees for a few minutes. Watch the vegetables and pull out when they are done to your liking. You have options here. You can leave them in just long enough for them to warm, all the way to the point where your onions are starting to crisp.

Remove pan from oven, and serve. Our breath stunk for days after that meal but it was so worth it!

Some variations. Sometimes I just drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper instead of melting butter. Sometimes, I spray the pan with Pam and just sprinkle seasonings over the veggies and don’t even bother drizzling oil. Sometimes I use red pepper or Italian seasoning instead of garlic. I think you get the point. This is easy and can really be altered to your liking.
