Im on a cut right now and on 2 of my meals i'm switching out the carbs (rice, beans, bread etc.) and replacing them with frozen vegetables. I don't buy vegetables fresh, only frozen. The problem I'm having is that frozen vegetables get boring pretty fast.
So what is everyones favorite way to spice/prepare your frozen veggies? Keep in ming this is for a cut so preferably low calorie suggestions please.

This isn't really much for spicing it up, but I will have a bowl of ~20 carbs worth of mixed frozen veggies with 1.5-2 tablespoons of real butter and then some salt. I get frozen veggies with nothing else added. I'll be interested in seeing other replies as I too have been wondering what kind of spices might go well with this.

I keep a ton of seasoning blends around for my veggies; Italian, Spicy Jerk, Asian, Fajita, etc. I also keep things like soy sauce, sriracha, dijon mustard, salsa, low fat cheeses, pre-cooked bacon crumbles and A1 Sauce on hand. Just a bit of any of those things adds a lot of flavor and personality to veggies.

I love salsa. Put a tablespoon or two of it on top of a bowl of cooked veggies and my toes curl in delight.~Whatever you do today, do it a little harder, a little faster, and a little better than yesterday~

I put Sriracha on pretty much everything. If for some reason I'm tired of that I also have several different McCormicks spice mixes that I'll throw on my veggies.
Also, good ol' salt and pepper make them much better (though I only really like freshly ground salt/pepper).May 1st - Aug 1st Weightloss Comp:
