Veggie Delight

How can you say no to corn on the cob? Or nicely boiled carrots and green beans? Or, even, a bowl of fresh and bright broccoli? I had all of those for lunch and dinner today. Not because I'm on a diet, but because I feel like having them. 

Vegetable is good for one's body. Other than the fact that they are rich in fiber that will help you do your business in the bathroom, it also enhance your physic. Carrots, for example, they enhance your eyes performance, while broccoli reduce the the risk of you getting a coronary heart. On the other hand, corn and green bean are very low in calories. Great and healthy, don't you think?

You don't have to always cook something with seasoning, especially vegetable. Just boil them for 3 minutes in a pan of boiling water and voila! you got yourself a batch of healthy food. Corns and carrots are sweet, sweet-toothed persons ought to fancy them, while broccoli and green beans are just bland, yet juicy.

Broccoli! Broccoli!

If you're not into bland vegetables, you can make a bowl of sweet and savory mixture to eat them with. My Mom has this easy recipe to make it, and I shall share it with you.

Ingredients: garlic, onion, sugar, salt, pepper, Kikkoman soy sauce, and corn flour. 

How to Make:
- Mash the garlic and slice the onion

- Fry them with a frying pan until the color get darker 

- Pour some water, then add sugar, salt, and pepper

- Add some Kikkoman soy sauce and corn flour

- Whisk it 

Very simple right? You don't even need to measure the ingredients, you just have to taste it for yourself. If you think the mixture is lacking of sugar, then add some sugar. If it is lacing of pepper, then add some pepper. Be creative and don't be afraid to experiment!

You can also fry some chicken as a side dish to your vegetable platter, like my Mom did today. She fried some chicken breast and chicken thigh with instant batter. Not only the chicken will be crispy and McDonald-like, they will be savory and delicious as well.

So, what are the odds of you having vegetable for breakfast, lunch, and dinner tomorrow?
