  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose seasoning
  • 3 boiling potatoes (about 1 pound), cut in 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 pound broccoli crowns, cut up
  • 2 yellow squash, cut into 1-inch thick diagonal slices
  • 2 fully cooked turkey sausages, cut into thirds

Step 1Stir together the yogurt, garlic, dill, tarragon and seasoning. Set aside.

Step 2Bring water to boil in the bottom of a 2-quart saucepan with a steamer insert set over, but not touching, the water. Place the potatoes in the insert, cover and steam over medium-high heat 5 minutes. Add the broccoli crowns; cover, and steam 5 minutes. Add the squash and sausages, cover, and steam another 4 to 5 minutes. Check the vegetables with the tip of a knife -- they should be crunchy yet tender. Steam a few minutes more, covered, if necessary.

Step 3To serve, arrange the vegetables on 2 plates. Spoon the yogurt sauce over the potatoes and season to taste.
