Looking for an easy side dish? Sometime the recipes I cook in the crock-pot aren’t something I want to add vegetables in to and sometimes I am cooking something quick on the grill but want a healthy side to go with the main course. This is a really simple way to cook your vegetables and not heat up your house. Great for all those folks with a veggie garden! Feel free to change up the vegetables you use, I just used what I happened to have and love.
Crock-Pot Vegetable Medley
2 Cups Fresh Broccoli Florets, Washed
1 Large Tomato, Washed and Sliced

1 Red Onion, Peeled and Sliced
3 Tablespoons Earth Balance Coconut Spread
1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
Salt and Pepper to Taste
1/4 Cup Water
- Put all the vegetables in the crock-pot.
- Add coconut spread*, water and garlic powder.
- Sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired.
- Cover and cook on low 4-6 hours until veggies are tender crisp.
- Stir before serving.
*I use Earth Balance Coconut Spread because we are a dairy and soy free family now. If you would like to you can use butter or your favorite butter like spread.
