So, I know this may be lame, but I thought I'd post my favorite way of preparing veggies. We eat a TON of veggies and I've found this to be the easiest and yummiest way to get them to the table...and have your kids enjoy them.
My Favorite Veggies
Vegetables (I like a carrot, cauliflower and broccoli combo)
Salt (try the Pink Himalayan salt at Costco- its much more nutritious than table salt)
You'll need a steamer of some sort on hand (I have a metal basket that fits on top of my regular stovetop skillet- got it at Williams-Sonoma for about $8). Put water in the bottom of the skillet, but careful not to do too little or the veggies burn, or too much, or the veggies boil- you don't want the water to overflow onto your steamer basket. Chop veggies to similar sizes to allow for even cooking. Place them in the basket and steam with lid covering until desired tenderness (I like mine with a little crunch). Empty the water from your skillet and return skillet to hot stovetop. Pour olive oil to coat bottom and heat slightly. Return veggies to skillet and season with salt and cajun seasoning. Stir to coat and remove from heat- you don't want to cook your veggies any longer. Enjoy. I love serving these veggies tossed with these Simple Sesame Noodles.
