Every once in a while we feel a real need for veggies. Yes, it’s my fault. Being the primary carnivore between the two of us, we sometimes neglect our veggies at mealtimes. We’ve heard word of meat sweat (oh, gross!), and the detrimental effects of eating too much meat and not enough vegetables. So when our vegetable indicators dip to a red alert level, we turn to this recipe of delicious greens to replenish our fibre and vitamin requirements. It’s probably not the best way to get balanced diet, but it’s better than no veg at all? (Who am I kidding?) Eat your vegetables, kids!
In order to maximise the vitamins and nutrients of vegetables, we’ve come to learn that steaming them veggies are the best way to get the most out of them. With a splash of Kikkoman soy sauce (read more here!), some vinegar, sesame oil and sugar, you get a lovely (and tasty) serving of your 5-a-day, or more! Sprinkle toasted sesame seeds for an added kick!
