Sauteed Greens, Broccoli, and Zucchini

Prep: 10 minutes Cook: 5 minutes


I make this with whatever is abundant in my garden: kale, chard, bok choy, etc. I just chop everything into uniform sized pieces,place it all in a large non-stick saute pan and cook and stir until tender.


  • 4-6 cups mixed leafy greens, broccoli & zucchini, uniformly chopped
  • 1 onion, sliced and separated into rings
  • dash vegetable broth
  • dash soy sauce (optional)
  • dash red pepper flakes
  • all-purpose vegetable seasoning mixture as desired (see hints)


Chop all the vegetables according to what you have on hand. For example, slice zucchini into rounds, cut broccoli into florets, chop kale into bite-sized pieces. Place all the vegetables and the onion into a large non-stick saute pan. Add a splash each of vegetable broth and soy sauce and a dash or two of red pepper flakes and vegetable seasoning mixture. Cook and stir until liquids are evaporated and beginning to brown. Continue to cook and stir until browned and tender. Serve at once, either as a side dish or over rice and beans.

Hints: There are many varieties of vegetable seasoning mixtures available at supermarkets and even Costco. Look for ones that are made from an assortment of vegetables, herbs and spices (organic,if possible) and sodium free. For example, Costco brand, Kirkland, has a fantastic organic no-salt seasoning mixture made from 21 organic spices, vegetables and herbs. This is delicious added to almost any vegetable mixture and adds a lot of flavor to a vegetable saute without any added sodium.
