seasoned salt, or to taste
This was a very simple side dish to make. I used one cup of frozen broccoli and pre-shredded fresh carrots. To save on washing pots, steaming it, I just put the ingredients in a small covered bowl with a tsp or two of water and microwaved it for the 5 minutes. This only makes one large or 2 small servings. Since that was the case, I halved the lemon juice and seasoning salt amounts. I thought the end result was it was a little tart and salty. I definitely want to try this again and next time do 1/4 of the lemon juice and seasoning salt. It was a nice change to the typical garlic, olive oil, and lemon flavorings on many side dishes.
Steamed Broccoli & Carrots w/ Lemon Haiku: "This was too salty. (And we really like our salt.) Heavy lemon too." I've always loved a splash of lemon and a sprinkle of salt on steamed broccoli, and thought that I'd try this recipe, w/ its addition of julienned carrots and seasoned salt instead of regular ol' salt. Oh my did we pucker our lips from the lemon, and lunge for our drinks from the salt. A great concept, easy and colorful, just needed half the lemon, half the seasoned salt.
This side dish was alright. I had to add a little pepper and a tiny bit of salt to add extra flavor. The fresh lemon juice wasn't enough. It wasn't horrible but definitely have to tweak it next time.
