My dinner was so good last night that I nibbled leftovers with my smoothie for breakfast this morning. Thursday was my last doctor appointment with my functional medicine team (sniff, sniff) and they gave me a packet of recipes. We took one and modified it a bit according to what we had. Three cups each of chopped red kale, purple cabbage, broccoli. We steamed it so it was softened just a bit, but still crunchy. I made some garlic avocado oil and then sauteed a pound of bison in it. We seasoned the bison with just salt and a good bit of black pepper and served it over the vegetables. It was ridiculously good. 

Pictures are raw, steaming, and steamed. Oh, and leftovers.

Tonight we're trying out our new grill (Ernie has an incredibly generous brother. All hail Dennis) and smoking some pork. I guess that calls for some kind of slaw. I did buy a pretty mango the other day. Hmmm…that might work. Ok, off to think about that. Enjoy your Saturday folks.

 

One thought on “Why Don’t Steamed Vegetables Sound As Good As They Taste?

  1. Have you seen me mention that my very favorite dinner is a bowl of steamed vegetables? Sometimes I use a sauce, and sometimes I’ll add tofu or a bit of cheese. It’s not that I don’t like sautéed vegetables, but I like how steaming makes them more sweet.

Thoughts?
