Cauliflower Carrots and Peas

Simple Easy Delicious Steamed Vegetable Recipe

Steamed Cauliflower, Carrots and Peas

Cauliflower, Carrots and Peas are delicious naked, but we like to dress them with a little olive oil, lemon juice, salt & pepper, and minced fresh herbs like parsley or basil. Or add a sweet & sour sauce to the cooked veggies.

This vegetable recipe is also lovely with Fresh Dill Sauce from the Eat Taste Heal Ayurvedic Guide & Cookbook
