    The vegetables I usually make are from costco, but they're just frozen stir-fry vegetables so I'm sure they sell them anywhere. You put however much you want in a frying pan or wok with some water, put the top on and steam until they're hot. Then drain and eat with salt, pepper, and soy sauce. I like putting on Kikkoman Teryaki sauce, I think green onion and garlic is the flavor we have. I'm not sure where to get it though :/ If you can find it, it's amazing Anyway... hope that helped :P

    I didnt think that I would like brussells sprouts, but I tried them and LOVE them. You will too if you like cabbage.

    Roasted Brussels Sprouts

    1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts, ends
    trimmed and yellow leaves removed
    3 tablespoons olive oil 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black
    pepper

    Directions:
    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).
    2. Place trimmed Brussels sprouts, olive oil, kosher salt, and pepper in a large resealable plastic bag. Seal tightly, and shake to coat. Pour onto a baking sheet, and place on center oven rack.
    3. Roast in the preheated oven for 30 to 45 minutes, shaking pan every 5 to 7 minutes for even browning. Reduce heat when necessary to prevent burning. Brussels sprouts should be darkest brown, almost black, when done. Adjust seasoning with kosher salt, if necessary. Serve immediately
