with Herbs & Nuts

Vegetables & Hazelnuts  

Preparation time: 15 minutes, depending upon choice of vegetables

Cooking time: 20 minutes, depending upon choice of vegetables

Yield: 4 to 6 servings

This is a simple dish that brings out the freshness of the vegetables.


1/2 pounds seasonal fresh vegetables, peeled and cut in serving size pieces (asparagus, carrots, yellow squash, green beans, cauliflower, etc.)

1/4 cup melted butter
1 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill weed (1 teaspoon dried)
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme (1/4 teaspoon dried)
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 finely chopped toasted hazelnuts

Steam or boil vegetables separately until tender-crisp.

Mix together butter, garlic, and herbs. Pour over the vegetables. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and hazelnuts.

Low fat tip: The butter armesan, and nuts can be reduced to approximately one tablespoon each and still preserve a hint of the flavors.

Note: Use the best parmesan available, such as Parmigiano Regglano. In the long run, it will save both calories and money, as the flavor is so intense you will use less.
