Steamed Veggies with Pesto and Arugula Salad with Lemon and Olive oil

005 steamed veggies with pestoPD

I eat steamed veggies everyday, usually kale, broccoli, spinach and whatever else may be fresh that day.

Keeping it interesting is sometimes a challange.

The last thing that I want to do is add more empty calories.

I have been in the habit of keeping homemade pesto in my fridge and freezer.

I make mine with basil. olive oil, garlic and pine nuts. Real simple; real fast and real food.

I plop about 1 tablespoon on steamed veggies and it is a meal.

Another tip that I like to share is that I always slice garlic into the vegetables while they are steaming. It adds rich flavor.

This arugula is my new favorite! Just greens with some fresh squeezed lemon and 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
