We usually prepare this recipe with frozen vegetables in the wintertime, when the fresh vegetables either are not in the best condition or are excessively priced (more than twice the price of frozen).  If using frozen vegetables, we suggest using a one-pound bag of broccoli cuts and a one-pound bag of broccoli-cauliflower mix.

Wash, peel, and dice the onion.  Place in a large covered glass or ceramic baking dish.  Wash, peel, and slice the carrots, and add them to the baking dish.  Add the oregano and hot sauce and mix well.  Cover the baking dish and cook in your microwave oven on high until the onions become semi-translucent (about 5 minutes).

If you are using fresh broccoli and cauliflower, wash and cut them into bite-sized pieces.

When the onions are cooked add the broccoli and cauliflower to the baking dish, mix, and cover and cook until they are hot and beginning to get tender.  Mix after the first five minutes (approximately) to ensure even cooking.

While the veggies are cooking, pour the lemon juice into a heat- treated (e.g. Pyrex) measuring cup.  Add the corn starch and mix well. 

When the veggies are cooked, remove from the microwave oven. Place the cup of freshly mixed lemon juice and corn starch in the oven and heat for about 30 seconds.  This should be like a  thick gel.  Mix again, add to the veggies, and mix in thoroughly to ensure that all the veggies are uniformly coated.  If necessary, reheat the veggies for a couple of minutes.

Serve and enjoy!

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-25)
