Tender, naturally sweet and loaded with nutrients this simple recipe for Steamed Broccoli and Carrots pairs wonderfully with so many dinner options.

It’s especially good with this simple recipe for 30 MINUTE SKILLET TERIYAKI CHICKEN.

I like to buy these bags of precut veggies, they make it so easy! Just place them in a large glass bowl, add a bit of water to the bottom of the bowl, cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 5 minutes on high. Allow them to sit and rest, then microwave for another 2-3 minutes or until the veggies are tender.

Toss with a bit of butter, salt and a bit of lemon pepper, if you like that seasoning. If not, it’s just as good without it.
