Vegetable dressing/sauce for steamed veggies

How do you eat your steamed vegetables? I want to make enough dressing and keep this in the fridge for 5 days or so. This way I can quickly steam vegetables and pour the dressing over the veggies. Quick, easy and tasty.

Extra virgin olive oil-fresh lemon juice-garlic-herbs, this combination is my basic dressing. I want to make it with some tahini next time..

For those who are lazy like me, my question is; how do you eat your daily vegetables?

BTW, how long can you keep a dressing with garlic in the fridge?

I'm with msmofet. Butter, salt and pepper. Never thought about a dressing on veggies. I'll occasionally make the classic green bean casserole or melt some Velveeta on broccoli and cauliflower.

Yup, I'm a butter person also, though occasionally I toss in some dill weed for added flavor.

Try some assorted spices in olive oil.
I like to take some cajun spice, lemon pepper and garlic, stir it into
olive oil and let it sit for a bit to "marinate". Then toss the veggies in it
after steaming.

The variations are endless. Can be done with butter or even chicken stock, too.

That would be garlic powder, not fresh, so no worries about botulism or other evile daemons! ;)

I follow this as well. Works great with frozen veggies too.

I like my steamed veggies topped with a little olive oil and Mrs. Dash. You could use Tzadziki Sauce, Hollandaise or any number of sauces. There is a restaurant in Charleston (Glass Onion) that serves Bernaise sauce with fries.

I use an asian style salad dressing one my veggies and also a tuscan style salad dressing. Makes for some interesting fun and you can style a meal after which dressing you are using. Any dressing you make should be able to make it in the fridge for 1-2 weeks if kept tightly capped.
