Country Crock Holiday Veggie Kit #HolidayVeggieDish

If you hang out with me on OurKidsMom’s Facebook page, I recently shared what my fridge looks like after a bi-weekly shopping trip.

As you can see, vegetables play a large part of our daily diet. I have found that having a nice variety of ways to prepare them helps keep the family coming back for more… eating & enjoying them.

I wanted to share one of my quick & easy dishes that we prepare quite often. I am a huge mushroom fanatic. On the occasion I make eggs for breakfast I like to make this as a side dish or if I’m feeling a bit lazy I will make it and pour my eggs into the pan so they meld.

mushrooms

It’s really incredibly easy but oh so tasty. Start with a little bit of margarine (Country Crock)/butter/olive oil (whichever you prefer), add in onions (we love red onions because they are a tad bit sweet) and stir until soft, add in green peppers stirring for a few minutes, add in mushrooms, sprinkle with garlic salt and stir until cooked through. Voila! Three of my favorite vegetables mixed together with a tiny bit of garlic salt…mmmmmm.

Garlic-mashed-potatoes-_-cauliflower-297482-264196.cardCountry Crock wants to add a little spice to our vegetable prep. They sent me a few veggie recipes that I am eager to try out. One in particular is for Garlic Mashed Potatoes & Cauliflower. I’ve heard of “faux” mashed potatoes using just cauliflower, but this is the first time I’ve seen a dish with both potatoes and cauliflower. Doesn’t it look yummy?

Country Crock wants to make sure our kitchens are fully equipped for all the delicious veggie dishes we will be preparing this holiday season. That’s why they are offering this fun prize pack including a new Calphalon pan, a veggie slicer and more! I used the veggie slicer last night and it’s the first time in forever that I’ve chopped an onion without crying!
