Delicious Green Veggies With Fresh Dill

Another fresh new year is here… to live , to love and laugh and to work for the best. For all this we need to keep our body fit and mind sound. It is also the time to unload all those calories from our system that we merrily chew down during holidays(ha ha). It’s time to turn to those healthy foods. Fresh green vegetable are like good friends who came to rescue when you feel a slight guilt for all those sinful delights. So last night I cooked some green vegetables with fresh dill leaves and enjoyed a delicious healthy dinner which I would love to share with you.
Cauliflower or broccoli 1 small cut into bite size florets
Baby potato     8 to 10 boiled
Carrots         1/2 cup  julienned
Red yellow and green pepper  1  each julienned
French  beans  6 to 8  (top and tail the beans)
Green peas     ½ cup
Garlic     3 to 4 cloves crushed
Olive oil  2 table spoon
Lemon zest  1/2  tea spoon
Lemon juice  1 tea spoon
Fresh dill leaves   hand full chopped 
Salt and pepper  to taste 
For this plate of mixed vegetable I stir fried the garlic in olive oil till the aroma filled the air then add cauliflower or broccoli ( you can use both) and French beans. Cover the pan with a lid so that this vegetable get a cooked for a minute then add all the other vegetables, salt and pepper then turn and toss till the vegetables are cooked but still crunchy. Then add the boiled potato, lemon juice , lemon zest and the fresh dill leaves and mix well. Adjust seasoning and my delicious stir fried green vegetable is ready to serve. I have it with garlic bread, you can have it with any bread roll of your choice and you feel healthy and complete with this colorful savory plate.
