I would give it five stars after my personal modifications...if you want your vegetables to still be 'tender-crisp' or simply have some firmer texture but still have the 'bitterness' cooked out, then cut the slices thicker or lengthwise. I do not use butter...rather I toss my veggies in olive oil and toss in some slices onions, minced garlic, and diced tomatoes. I also sprinkle some sea salt and black pepper over everything and then wrap it all up in the foil and throw on my griddle/grill on the stovetop (too cold for grilling right now). About 20 minutes...perfect side dish! Read More

The measurements of tablespoons just didn't sound right to me so I used teaspoons of spices and it came out very good. I will make this again adding mushrooms onion and red bell peppers. Read More

Very good for my Weight Watchers plan! I omitted the butter though (3/4 cup wow that's a lot) and used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray. I added minced garlic chopped onion green peppers and italian seasoning. Followed the advice on reducing the salt/pepper and it was delicious! Read More

I added some julienned carrots to this vegetable dish. Instead of grilling I opted to make the veggies by steaming instead of grilling in all the butter. I left out the black pepper and garlic powder choosing instead to saute some minced garlic in about 1 Tbsp of butter and drizzled it on top of the veggies followed by a sprinkling of freshly grated parmesan cheese.

This was good but when I started making it I thought the amounts of butter and seasonings was WAY too much so I cut those amounts in half and it was STILL too much! Next time I'll try cutting it down to 1/2 stick of butter and a teaspoon each of salt pepper and garlic powder and it should be really good. Read More

This was yummy. I cut down on the butter and added fresh red onions to the mix. I eyeballed the suggested seasonings and in addition added some Italian seasonings. This recipe turned out great. Read More

I never use all that butter - it's way too much. I use I can't believe it's not butter spray. I add some fresh portabella mushrooms and some cherry tomatoes cut in half along with red onion cut into rings and a few dashes of italian seasoning. Also the measurements for the salt and pepper may be a little off on here too. Just add to taste. Read More
