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

serves about 6 depending on portion size.

How To Make sauteed rainbow vegetables

  • 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.
