Marinated Vegetables

In my quest to eat more fruits and vegetables, I am constantly looking for different ways to prepare them.  I don't follow the Mediterranean Diet to the letter, but what I eat is often in that direction.

I found this recipe on the internet and it's a winner, folks!

Steam a variety of vegetables.  This time, I used yellow and red bell peppers, red baby potatoes, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts.  Use whatever you like, just aim for a colorful variety.

Combine:

3/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 Tablespoons water
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon (or several shakes) hot sauce

Pour this mixture over the steamed vegetables.  Mix.  Cover and refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight.

  1. Looks wonderful! We look forward to cooking in our own kitchen again. The food here is fantastic, but at home we have a little more control over salt content. ;)
