Are you a little bored of your daily greens? We often think of veges as a simple side dish yet there are lots of ways to jazz them up, add nutrients and make them more delicious and enjoyable.
I found this recipe for zesty orange greens here and it was good!! I simply changed the vegetables a bit to fit with what is in season at the moment and the quantities to work for me. Served with some marinated chicken and some quinoa or brown rice it makes a delicious meal. This was even better as leftovers the next day a the dressing had really flavoured the vegetables.
Ingredients (for 3 serves):
1 head of broccoli
2 cups of green beans
zest and juice from 1 small or 1/2 a large orange
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup toasted hazelnuts
3 tablespoons of chopped chives
Steam the green vegetables until just cooked. You want the broccoli to be slightly crisp to bite, not soggy. While the vegetables are cooking, place the orange juice, zest, and olive oil in a bowl or shaker and wisk/shake until combined. Drizzle the dressing over the cooked greens and sprinkle over the hazelnuts and chives.
It’s as easy as that!
