Introduction

We eat a lot of frozen veggies at our house because they're cheap and they store well but they don't always taste great. This is how I cook them so that they do.

Ingredients

    2 servings of any frozen vegetable in the 30 calories per a serving range - I generally use California Medley but anything without noodles or rice or corn will work. Broccoli is really good on its own in this recipe as well.
    1 mushroom (I use stuffing sized mushrooms because they're always on manager's clearance where I shop)
    1/4 of an onion
    1-3 cloves of garlic
    1/2 tsp of Olive Oil
    1/2 tsp each of Smoked Paprika, Garlic Salt/Powder, Sea Salt.

Directions

Add oil to the pan set to medium-high heat. While its heating, throw the frozen veggies in the microwave for 60-90 secs to get the frost off and start warming the centers. They should still be cold but not rock solid.
Add onion and garlic to the pan, mix around with the oil, then add the mushrooms about 3 minutes later. This keeps the mushrooms from soaking up the entirety of the oil before the onions and garlic can start to infuse it.
When the mushrooms are starting to brown and everything smells amazing, add the formerly frozen vegetables and smoked paprika, garlic salt/powder, and sea salt. If you use garlic salt, go easy on the sea salt unless the lady of your house is obsessed with sodium like mine and then add double. Cook until everything is just hot, not mushy. Earn mass approval of household. Rejoice.
Two servings.
