Curried Vegetables

i am trying to increase my veggie intake on a daily basis by eating more vegetables at lunchtime. i decided to throw a bunch of vegetables together yesterday and add some different spices. the results of my first spice experiment were wonderful. i used a little curry and cumin and they were quite tasty.
i started with 1/2 an onion and added roughly 15 chopped green beans, 1 smallish chopped zucchini, and a 1/2 cup pf frozen peas. i used about a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and 1/2 tsp of ground curry and 1/2 tsp of ground cumin. when the vegetables were almost finished i added half a grilled chicken breast i had chopped up about the same size as the vegetables. from start to finish (including chopping) took less than 15 minutes.

this was a super simple and quick homemade lunch full of vegetables and it kept me full for quite some time. i am going to be continuing to experiment more with fresh herbs and spices and let you know what i discover. in fact, today i am off to spring meadow farms to stock up on some fresh herbs to plant in my herb garden!

  1. Yum- that looks great! You should try making a curried spinach salad, too, if you're trying to increase your fruits and veggies. It also has some, apples, nuts, and raisins in it. Here's the recipe:
