Simply Delish ~ Veggie Side Dish

Kick it up a notch and make this side dish for your family!  
My entire family, even my carnivorous husband,  loves this seasoned veggie combination I came up with not too long ago when wanting something a little different for a vegetable dish.  I've made it several times since then and everyone is glad to see it being served up.

You'll probably want to make less of this since I have prepared it for 8 and it makes 8 big servings.  Sorry I don't have exact amounts.  I just wing it but you'll get the idea!

Seasoned Green Beans and Carrots
(I have also added red pepper, yellow squash and/or mushrooms so mix it up to your liking!)

2 lbs fresh string green beans, washed
1 lb peeled baby carrots (regular carrots are fine to)
1 large red onion, chopped
Appx. 2 tsp Lawrys or Season All
Appx 1- 2 tsp garlic powder
Appx 1 tsp salt
Appx 1 tsp pepper 
Appx 1/2 stick butter

Use the spices according to your tastes.  

I first cook the carrots, covered in a skillet with a little water, only enough to almost cover them for about 10 minutes.  

 Next, add the green beans over the carrots and steam for about 5-7 minutes until they're crisp tender.  Watch the water level, you'll want just a little so these can continue to steam and cook...and not burn.

Now add the red onion, about 4 tablespoons butter, salt, pepper, garlic powder and Lawry's or Season All.  Sautee' all until onions begin to soften, about 5 minutes.  It's so colorful and looks so appetizing.   I can't quite put my finger on it, but the Lawry's / Season All doesn't really taste like that when combined with the vegetables.  It just gives a really good flavor!

Hope you all get to try it, and hope you all like it as much as we do!
