Broccoli, Cauliflower and Carrots in the Microwave

This is one of my favorite  vegetable combinations to make in the microwave.   A great  side dish when your oven and stove top are busy  – like on Thanksgiving.

Broccoli, Cauliflower and Carrots in the Microwave

  • broccoli florets
  • cauliflower florets
  • carrots, very thinly sliced
  • a little water
  • 1 to 2 tbsp. butter, softened
  • lemon pepper seasoning to taste
  • garlic powder to taste

Combine the vegetables and water in a microwave safe bowl and cover loosely with some saran wrap.    Cook according to the manufacturers instructions.  I just push my “vegetable” button and voila.  Drain and season to taste with lemon pepper, garlic powder and a little butter.   You can use any seasonings you would like.  See my recipe Cauliflower and Broccoli Italian Style Two Ways (one is a Weight Watcher’s recipe),

Served with Oven Fried Chicken Two Ways and  Risotto Milanese Two Ways (one is a Weight Watcher’s recipe)
