I love vegetable combinations that taste as good as they look. It's one that has already seen to reruns, it's just that good. Have to love when easy and healthy taste great. Thank you for sharing.

This recipe is so attractive and is so good. The three veggies compliment each other and the wee touch of orange just adds to the flavour. You don't miss any sauce or butter on these veggies. I added the red pepper to the steamer for 1 minute at the end just to heat it through. Thanks Derf for a keeper. 4 Oct13 Made again and enjoyed it just as much. This time I did it in the oven 20 minutes at 400 then added the peas and pepper for an additional 10 minutes, added the orange juice just befor serving. 26 Aug 16 Made again and enjoyed just as much
