Simple Skillet Vegetables Recipe
On those nights when I have no idea what I'm going to make as a side, I usually reach for this recipe. It comes together especially quickly when I have a frozen vegetable blend tucked in my freezer, but sometimes I substitute 3 cups of fresh, chopped vegetables instead.
- 1 bag (24 ounces) frozen vegetable blend of your choice
- 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
- 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
- 1 Tbsp. dry-ranch-dressing mix, lemon-pepper seasoning or seasoning blend of your choice
Place the vegetables in a skillet over medium heat, add 1/2 cup water and cook, covered, for 5 minutes. Stir; cover again and cook until tender, 5 more minutes. Drain and discard the water, then stir in the butter, lemon juice and ranch-dressing mix. Cook, uncovered, until the butter has melted and the sauce has heated thoroughly. Serve hot.
