When you need a vegetable side dish for your meal in a pinch, don't worry about slow-roasting any veggies! This is a great method to cook vegetables super quickly, and thanks to ingredients like Mediterranean spices, garlic and balsamic vinegar, it has a bright Italian flavor that we love.
2 tablespoons Olive Amigo Joy Olive Oil
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced into ¼” strips
1 teaspoon Olivo Amigo Elevate Mediterranean Spices
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 head broccoli, 1” florets
2 carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
2 tablespoon Olivo Amigo Spark Balsamic Vinegar
1/4 cup roasted slivered almonds
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat.
Add the oil and heat for another 30 seconds.
To the hot pan add the red onion, bell pepper and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt.
Cook, stirring often until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes.
Add the Olivo Amigo Elevate Mediterranean Spices, garlic, broccoli and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until the vegetables are beginning to brown and are cooked through.
Stir in the carrots and cook for 2 minutes.
Deglaze with the balsamic vinegar. Toss well to coat.
Sprinkle with the almonds and serve over rice or pasta if desired.
Top off this yummy veggie side with some slivered almonds and an extra drizzle of balsamic vinegar! While you’re at it, serve some balsamic on the side for dipping too! Check out the video on our Youtube Channel.
