Vegetable dishes

It's part of every meal, or it should be in my view. The difficult thing about vegetables is that they're pretty bland on their own. You have to do something with it to make it tasty! My favorite vegetable is lettuce in all different variations with a dressing, green beans cooked in stock with thyme and onion, broccoli steamed and some others.

In the Indonesion kitchen they cook vegetables in a 'boemboe' an herb mixture with coconutmilk. This is so good! Try Sayur Lodeh or Sambal Goreng Beans, yummy. If I ever turn vegetarion I'll eat lots and lots of indonesion food ;-) When I get take-out at an Indonesian restaurant I usually prefer vegetables and tofu dishes over meat, so usually 3 veg/tofu dishes and one meat/chicken/fish dish. Yummy!

Most important when cooking vegetables is not to overcook them, they should usually be firm and crispy to eat.

Try some of my favorites below, wonder what you'll think of them. Enjoy.
