A Few Veggies A Meal Makes

These are the the veggie’s I had in the fridge this time around and I also had some beautiful bright mustard greens as well.

Together with some select spices and flavorings I whipped up a bountiful dish that fed me quite well.

Allspice and cinnamon  pairs well with the apple, carrot and onion. Both of these spices are also used often in Middle Eastern dishes which I grew up eating. The apple cider vinegar enhances the apple flavor and produces a nice tangy taste that adds to the sweet spiciness of  this meal. I chopped the trio of carrot, onion and apple and sautéed with spices first, adding salt and pepper to taste.

Then I incorporated the greens into the saute’, carefully adding the cider vinegar and some Tamari.

I then put on some millet to boil to go with the veggie’s. Millet is a great grain that is quick and very good for you, it has a nutty flavor and good protein. It is also a budget friendly grain that packs a punch of nutrients instead of white rice which is cheap but lackluster in the health department. I’m not totally knocking white rice, I love me some good Jasmine and Basmati rice, but millet is healthier and delicious. I always boost my grains by adding some type of seasoning. I put in some cumin seeds, salt and white pepper.

I packed the millet in a measuring cup, 1/2 cup, and spooned the veggie saute’ around the mound of millet. Beautiful, but I didn’t hesitate to devour it!

I then had seconds, always!

Yum Food!! Yum Art!!
