While there are plenty of fancy ways to prepare vegetables, the recipes I use often are usually practical, quick, and flexible. While those more experienced in the kitchen might scoff at how simple a recipe like this is, I’ve included it here for those who are new to cooking and looking for a palatable, foolproof way to cook an assortment of vegetables in less than 30 minutes. Serve it as a side to a quick-cooking protein, like Broiled Scallops, Sear-Roasted Pork Chops, or Wild Salmon.

Of course, you can make some substitutions here, as long as the vegetables have a similar cooking time — I’ve successfully used broccoli, kholrabi, romanesco, and zucchini. Change the flavor by using a different solid cooking fat (like duck fat or lard) or a different herb (like rosemary).
