A Vintage Serving Dish for A Fresh Steamed Veggie Mix

The new year is upon us, and for many this means a fresh start. A renewed focus on diet and exercise often tops the charts for what we will work on in the year ahead. I decided to kick off 2018 by sharing a quick and easy recipe for steamed veggies featured in a pretty vintage serving dish from our Audrey Would! Etsy shop.

Steamed vegetables are a great option for meal time and healthy living straight up. The flavours you get from the blend of vegetables as they steam are really delicious, and with a little dash of ground pepper and small pinch of coarse salt, they’re ready to serve.

To mix things up we sometimes add a splash of lemon juice or white wine, and maybe even par-cook the carrots in chicken stock – it just depends. If you have the basics to work with, the possibilities are endless.

Serve in a Fabulous Vintage Dish

If you have a fabulous vintage serving dish, it adds the final touch. Choose a clear glass bowl and the colour of the veggies will pop!

Why order take-out when you can whip up a quick, healthy mix like this, and especially when you know your take-out will never come in a beautiful vintage bowl like this!
