Steamed Veggies with Dijon Chive Butter

I love vegetables (don't worry--it was a fairly recent liking of about 5 years ago)!  However, spicing them differently can be a challenge.  I like them with just salt and pepper most of the time; Ben does not.  So we compromised to a 50/50 (I might cheat by making broccoli with salt and pepper for me then adding cheese sauce for him! LOL). 

{I am a simple woman--steak and veggies for dinner!}

However, when I saw this recipe, I thought I would give it a try because A) it was something different and B) because I had all the ingredients.  I forgot where I saw the original recipe; it was probably a magazine.

{Yes, I use frozen veggies--it's just the two of us so buying fresh in bulk is not a viable option}
