  • ½ onion finely chopped

This recipe can be done with most frozen veggies, just ensure they are thawed before cooking and drain the water. You can also use fresh veggies, but expect a little bit longer cooking time (15-20 minutes likely for fresh broccoli or cauliflower or even a bit longer for carrots).
