I had a nice meal of steamed veggies earlier today: Broccoli, Yellow Peppers and green Beans. Tofu spicy sauce to top this. Rice and a small bread roll sides.
Green beans were undercooked. Next time, I will do better. I will add the veggies that need more time first such as green beans, carrots and then will add other softer veggies with time.

I made another meal later.
Green Beans, carrots(Thick pieces), cabbage needed 7minutes steaming almost. Added sesame seed oil to this. Mixed steamed broccoli, plum tomatoes, yellow peppers with boiled rice and Light guacamole.
Also had a learning lesson with my kitchen timer, it counts in minutes and seconds, not just seconds as I had expected. This is good to know for the future.
Even if some veggies are expensive, it is not a problem.I can purchase the more expensive ones in smaller amounts and those on sale in greater amounts. This way I have variety and things also evenout.
