Using Vegetables in Fridge

I seem to have vegetables go rotten in my fridge before I can eat them. I usually purchase broccoli, carrots, onions (not in the fridge), green peppers, and celery. Does anyone have a recipe that I can use all of these in and maybe suggestions for more veggies that will last in my fridge for at least three days? I am trying to lose weight and would like to have this for lunch if possible.

Chop whatever veggies you have, add a can of diced tomatoes, some beef or chicken broth garlic and onion powder, sweet and low to taste, and if you wish, some rice or ramen noodles. Cook until veggies (rice) are tender. If you use ramen noodles, add for the last few minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. Hints: I always use zucchini in my soup, and will add chopped chicken or browned, drained ground beef, which I keep in my freezer. If I use beef broth, I add a can of beans for fiber.

Any stir-fry can use those veggies, all together or in any combination, and it's a healthy option. Heat your wok or large skillet and add a tiny bit of oil - just enough to help the veggies get that golden brown tone. Chop them into pieces that are about the same size (grate/shred the carrots), toss them in the hot pan and stir until they are crisp-tender.


You can add a little chicken or other meat, as well as your favorite sauce, or just season them with a little salt & pepper, garlic/onion powder, or your favorite spice. You can also toss in leftover rice and, at the last minute, stir in a beaten egg and some soy sauce for fried rice.

I had the same problem until I purchased Debbie Meyers Green bags they really work! I also started breaking up the large bundles of veggies at the store taking half the amount and leaving the rest. Once home I wash them, dry them & put them in the Green Bags - they last almost two weeks. The Dollar General in my area now carry Green Containers that are supposed to do the same thing but I haven't tried them. Good Luck!
