So the other night when I made the Coconut Flaxseed Bread that I posted about, I had this half a can of coconut milk left over and had no idea what to do with it… then it hit me… why don’t I pour it in the veggies that are steaming… Mmmm Mmmm Good!
VEGGIES STEAMED IN COCONUT MILK
Total time: 20-25 minutes
1 head of broccoli
4 medium carrots
A big handful of asparagus
1/2 c water
1 c coconut milk
Cut veggies into bite size pieces.
Put carrots into pan and pour water over them.
Simmer on med-low for 10-15 minutes (until they are just becoming tender)
**Add a little more of water, if needed
Add the rest of the veggies to the pan and pour the coconut milk on top.
Steam for 5-7 minutes.

My guests and I really loved it!
This sounds INCREDIBLE! I can’t wait to try it!
So simple and easy I can’t believe I didn’t think of it before!
Since I steam most of my veggies, I will really try this
You won’t regret it mom 🙂
OH YEAH!! Now that the frost is almost on the pumpkins, soups and stew will rule the stove and any with coconut milk always get a big smile from the fam…sounds so yummy.
Frost… Brrr! But pumpkins and squash warm you up! I love pumpkin soup!
hahah you florida mama 🙂
I don’t know how you do this. I haven’t been able to read blogs in 2 or 3 days and you posted gazillion posts during this time. How do you do this? 🙂 I am glad you did, just have to find time to catch up…
Lol… Last week at work, nothing else to do so I write 🙂 now there will be a break since I’ll be in transit for about 26 hours!
