Spicy, marinated vegetables that are full of flavor and perfect for any occasion.

  1. Chop up all vegetables and place in a large bowl. Put the rest of the ingredients on top of the vegetables and stir to coat all of the vegetables. If the bowl has a lid, place the lid on the bowl. If the bowl doesn’t have a lid, put vegetable mixture in a large bag that can be sealed shut. Let vegetables marinate while turning veggies every few hours. For best taste, allow the vegetables 24 hours to marinate.

These spicy marinated vegetables are a great side dish that is full of flavor without being packed full of calories too! I can’t wait for you to try it!
