KFB Foodie Talk: How to make Broccoli & Carrot Stir Fry

For our newbies, the KFB foodie talk column – handled by Dobby of Dobbysignature –  is basically for ladies and ‘guys’ that are interested in learning how to cook better  ;).
Broccoli and
carrot stir fry is great way to add life to a simple meal. This combo is
packed with the most nutritional punch of any vegetable. Apart from
being nutritious, it is also easy to make. What i really love about this
meal is the way the flavors from the carrot and other veggies masks
perfectly the slightly bitter taste from the broccoli. 
Broccoli is
rich in vitamin C and vitamin K with considerable amounts of B vitamins
and manganese whereas carrot which is well known for its rich source of
beta-carotene and fiber is also rich in vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K,
vitamin B8, folate, potassium, copper, and manganese, pantothenic acid
and iron. For this recipe, i steamed the broccoli a little to help the
seasoning penetrate better but if you want to keep the crunch, skip the
boiling part and just move to stir frying for a quick side dish.
