Deliciously Spicy And Sweet Veggie

Have you ever didn’t know what to prepare for lunch or dinner? That moment when you open the fridge and think, now what?? This thing just happened to me today.

When I opened my fridge the first thing I saw were the carrots. It’s the best food for summer tan! (Carrots are well know as an important food for eye health and should help to create the gorgeous hair. Carrots have the highest amount of beta-carotene, contain calcium, potassium, iron, fiber, vitamins B1, B2, B6, C, K and biotin). Even better looking I saw of asparagus! (which are high in fiber, vitamin K which helps the body absorb calcium. Asparagus is very low in sodium which means that eating asparagus helps to reduces puffiness under-eye). And my thought was: how about some steamed vegetables?

Yes! I have prepared some steamed vegetables with fried onion, coconut milk (which gives a sweet flavor) and cayenne pepper (for the spicy taste). At the and of cooking I add some collard greens and leftover rice.

I have prepared lunch in 15 minutes and I can say that it was the best lunch ever!
