After having made & posted my Dinner Guest Macaroni & Cheese, I thought I would make something a little lighter on the calories. This is the recipe I came up with, & I served it with the Macaroni & Cheese.

I cooked the veggies a bit al dente if that is what you call veggies that are cooked only till tender crisp, where they still retain their color & shape. They were very tasty , & made a colorful addition to our dinner plate.

Can't go wrong using fresh tasty vegetables of your choice. You could add a bit of crumbled bacon if desired, but that would defeat the purpose of healthy.

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 small
head cabbage with outer leaves
1 lb
baby carrots (cooked seperately)
1 lb
broccoli florets
2 medium
onions, sliced thick
1 bunch
green onions, chopped
2 medium
red bell peppers, cut into thick strips
1 1/2 Tbsp
butter
1 Tbsp
olive oil
2 tsp
steak seasoning
1 Tbsp
italian seasoning
3-4 clove
garlic, minced

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Core and wash cabbage and cut into shreds or desired thickness as desired. Roll leaves together then cut with sharp knife into thin strips. Peel and slice onions, and add with the cabbage.
2
Add the butter and olive oil to a large 16 inch skillet, and melt over low heat then add the cabbage and onions & minced garlic, Cover with lid cook till they begin to change color to a bright green. About 10 minutes.
3
Boil baby carrots in a separate pot till tender, about 8 to 10 minutes then drain and set aside till needed. I chose to cook the carrots separately so they would be tender and not hard, but you can add to the skillet if desired.
4
Then add the broccoli flowerets to cabbage along with the red bell pepper strips, chopped green onions and the spices. Stir to blend together. Cover and continue to cook. Stirring as needed to prevent sticking.
5
Add the baby carrots then stir to mix together, and continue to cook until vegetables are cooked to desired tenderness. Remove from heat and serve as desired. A great colorful & tasty side addition to accompany any meal idea.
