  Carrots 1 Cup (16 tbs), shredded or julienned
  Mushrooms 1 Cup (16 tbs), diced
  Onion 1 , thinly sliced
  Margarine 2 Teaspoon

  Dried thyme 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon

1) Combine together the carrots, mushrooms and onions in a 4-cup glass measure.

3) Use no-stick spray to coat a large non-stick frying pan.
