Every week, I load up the cart with broccoli and carrot. Every, single, time; just so automatically. Cooking started to get frighteningly boring until I decided to challenge myself with a would-be blog show-and-tell — to vary ways of cooking (and eating) the broccoli-and-carrot duo. These were what I came up with over the past weeks.


*Chicken ‘n carrots meatball “clear stew” with broccoli. It is a lot more soupy than pictured.


*A very lazy tossed noodle, because I had some balls of skinny wanton noodles to use.

*Just steamed.


*Vegetarian yeemee for that starchy MSG fix.


Eventually I’d like to roast them in winter. And curries! Tempura vegetables would be nice, apart from the baneful need for a substantial amount of oil?

Do you also ever find yourself in a monotonous cooking rut?

  1. Yes I do! We steam veggies almost every night, and these two are the ones in the pot, more often than not. Superfoods, you know. Thanks for the recipe ideas! That yeemee looks yummy! Sometimes I toss carrots into a chicken curry (with apples and raisins), and steam the broccoli by itself for that ‘something green’ on the plate.
