Sautéed Garden Fresh Vegetables

There is nothing like garden fresh food and I’m loving my garden. We’ve had eggplant, green beans, beets, tomatoes, squash and so much more!! A lot has gone into the freezer, but there was one day that there was not quite enough of each for a meal, so I mixed them!

Here’s How to Do it:

Wash and clean all the veggies. Fresh from the garden there is usually dirt, even a bug or two. Make sure those are all washed off and the dirt gently scrubbed away. I used baby carrots (true baby – harvested when small), baby beets, two cherry peppers and some green beans.

Melt the butter and add the vegetables. Gently sauté until they are fork tender.

Move to a serving plate and garnish with edible flowers, like the blue borage I used.

Violets, pansies, and nasturtiums are great. Any garden fresh herb flower, like chives, parsley or cilantro also add a touch of flavor and color.

Serve hot!!
