In my quest to make a healthier lower calorie meal, I opted to make these sautéed vegetables to go with my Turkey Sloppy Joes.

The dish was quite tasty & colorful & just a little shredded parmesan cheese added on top while the vegetables were still hot went a long way.
This dish not only was colorful but was quick & easy to make. I cut the carrots on the bias & used my crinkle tool, & also cut some of the zucchini with the crinkle cutter, but left some plainly sliced, then I used sliced RED ONIONS INSTEAD OF YELLOW OR WHITE. Then sprinkled just a few green onion tops over it before serving

Ingredients

3 medium
zucchini, about 1 pound (sliced as desired)
1 1/2 Tbsp
coconut oil or canola or olive
1 medium
red onion sliced thinly
4 medium
carrots, peeled & sliced on the bias or as desired
2 medium
jalapeno peppers, seeds removed & chopped (leave seeds if you prefer the heat)
5 medium
mini sweet peppers (cut into thin strips) assorted colors
1 tsp
steak seasoning
1/2 c
shredded parmesan or cheese of your choice

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Using a crinkle cut cutter, slice the carrots on the bias, I do this for color and texture.
2
This is the amount I got from 4 medium carrots. This is what the organic coconut oil looks like, it is in solid form till heated above 76 degrees F. & it is a bit pricey, I got mine at Sam's Club for about $9.00 for a 28 ounce jar.
3
Peel & Slice the red onions.
4
Then cut the assorted mini peppers into strips and remove the seeds and chop the jalapeno.
5
Add coconut oil to large skillet, and heat over medium high heat. Add sliced carrots first and cook for about 5-6 minutes before adding the other veggies.
6
Now add the remaining vegetables to the skillet & sauté until crisp tender. add the steak seasoning and stir to mix.
7
Top hot vegetables with shredded parmesan cheese, place a lid on skillet until cheese melts, and vegetables look like this.
8
Serve and enjoy, add chopped green onion tops over vegetables just before serving if desired.
