Lemon Pepper Vegetables

One of my favorite ways to make vegetables is to steam or sauté them and then season them. I found a grill seasoning once that was really delicious, but it used dried rosemary and sometimes the twigs would get stuck in your teeth. I decided that since I loved the flavor, but not the rosemary, I would try my own seasoning. I found a perfect combination that I love to use when I want some steamed or sautéed vegetables, but want to add some extra flavor. One of the key ingredients is lemon pepper. It seems to add a little brightness to the flavor that really sets the vegetables off. I love to season steamed cauliflower and carrots this way. It’s a healthier way to add some flavor to them without adding cheese or butter and brown sugar. But this time I sautéed some mixed veggies and added my favorite spices. I loved the result. It added a delicious flavor to the vegetables and really spiced them up without adding extra calories. It’s quick and easy, and you can even mix up the spices ahead of time in a large batch to make it easier.
