I am not the type of person to throw some ingredients together and make a dish. I don’t feel like I know enough cooking techniques nor do I feel confident in throwing food and flavors together. However, my husband does not think like me. Sometimes Brandon will get hungry and decide to create a new dish to see how it tastes. He has made dishes that taste awesome and he has made other dishes that need improvements. Some of his creations, mainly meat dishes, have been featured on this blog. This recipe is another of his ideas that he threw together.

Sautéed Mixed Veggies

Olive Oil
1/2 small red onion, diced
broccoli florets
shredded carrots
Bacon Bits
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper

Heat olive oil in skillet. Cook onion until soft. Add seasonings. Add broccoli and carrots. Cook until done. Pour in bowl and add bacon bits.


We did not measure the veggies. He used about a handful of broccoli and just estimated on the rest.

TIP: if you need assistance with cutting the onion, follow the instructions from Southern Living. I read the instructions as he chopped the onion and it was very simple and quick.
