5 Healthy Meals You Can Enjoy With Vegetables

No one has to tell you that eating vegetables is right for your health. U.S Department of Agriculture in their article stated that vegetables are important sources of many nutrients, including potassium, dietary fibre, folate (folic acid), vitamin A, and vitamin C. Diets rich in potassium may help to maintain healthy blood pressure.

This information has been drummed into us from our days as children. But, just like everything else, it can become bland and annoying when you have to repeat a cycle of the same type of dish, thereby making vegetables tedious and tiring.

To spice up your vegetable dish and still eat healthily, here a few meals you will enjoy eating;

1. Salads

Let us begin with the obvious one. Your salad can have more than cabbage, carrots and mayonnaise in it. That’s boring. You can add other veggies like cucumber, peas, tomatoes, dried cranberries, nuts, green pepper, slices of eggs, pear and to finish it off the mix, add roasted chickpeas. Look at that; salad just got exciting and colourfully tasty. Check out this video;

2. Vegetable Casserole

The beauty of baking or cooking is that you can try anything, as long as it’s taste friendly. This dish, according to the video on YouTube, requires carrots, zucchini, broccoli, celery, potatoes and cauliflower. But only two of this vegetable can be found easily in our market. We have potatoes and carrots in abundance, whereas the others are scarce. What we can do is replace them with cucumber, beanstalks, green peas, mushroom or cocoyam and cabbage. Here is how to make a casserole with vegetables.
