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

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


1Using a crinkle cut cutter, slice the carrots on the bias, I do this for color and texture.
2This 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.
3Peel & Slice the red onions.
4Then cut the assorted mini peppers into strips and remove the seeds and chop the jalapeno.
5Add 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.
6Now add the remaining vegetables to the skillet & sauté until crisp tender. add the steak seasoning and stir to mix.
7Top hot vegetables with shredded parmesan cheese, place a lid on skillet until cheese melts, and vegetables look like this.
8Serve and enjoy, add chopped green onion tops over vegetables just before serving if desired.
