Well, it was definitely time for a bunch of veggies for dinner. Sometimes, I just feel the need for that sort of thing. I basically cooked up the majority of what was in the fridge… And I used the entire stovetop in the process. And the toaster oven. The meal became a bit more involved that I had originally planned, but so be it…
Burner #1 – Fried Cabbage, of sorts. Not really fried, but cooked down in some pseudo-butter stuff, with salt and pepper. The cabbage starts out quite bulky, so that got its own cooking pan.
Burner #2 – Steamed Baby Carrots. That was the only veggie that I was steaming, so that too had its own separate place.
Burner #3 – Garlic, Mushrooms and Zucchini. I added the mushrooms because they were there (of course, it’s rare that they are not there), but I didn’t have anything else specific in mind for ’em. So, those veggies all got sauteed in olive oil together.
Burner #4 – I decided to make some Parmesan Couscous to with everything. It’s a quick cooker… literally 6 minutes start to finish.
Toaster / Convection Oven – I had picked up an eggplant, because I’ve been having a hankering for it. So, I let the eggplant slices bake as I was cooking everything else. It had been too long… Yum.
All the veggie goodness went on top of the couscous, along with just a smattering of feta crumbles. A bit time-consuming, all good, nice and healthy, and just what we needed. 🙂
