Farmer's Market Veggie Medley

This is the most versatile side dish ever. 

I think you could literally serve it with everything.  Last time at the farmer's market, we picked up some carrots, zucchini, squash and onions.  Right away, I washed everything up, grabbed a knife, and sliced it all up.  Then I made a big bag of mixed veggies, added a few cloves of minced garlic, and a splash of basil-infused olive oil.  I tossed it in the freezer, and I've been grabbing a few handfuls, tossing the mix into a hot pan, and I have a simple, healthy side dish in just a few minutes.  Last night, I ran out to the garden and grabbed some fresh basil, chopped it up and tossed it in before serving.  YUM.  You can add whatever you like - just do it now, while the fresh veggies are plentiful, and you can enjoy the tastes of summer for months to come.

Farmer's Market Veggie Medley

1-2 zucchini, sliced
1-2 squash, sliced
3-4 carrots, sliced
1 medium red onion, sliced
1 tbsp. EVOO, basil-infused or plain
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
salt & pepper to taste
fresh basil, dill, rosemary, or whatever you like

Slice everything, mix it in a freezer bag, and save or another day, or just add it all into a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.  Add some fresh basil or other herbs, if you like.  Season with salt and pepper and serve!  If you freeze it, don't thaw before cooking.
