*Made for Australia/NZ swap #68* Just LOVE steamed veggies ! used all recipe ingredients, (except cilantro gel), but was dealing with broiling fragile crab cakes, so steamed for 15 minutes and skipped the saute this time. Loaded everything in the steamer, so there wasn't much crunch (this time). lovely fresh taste and best of all, enough for another meal ! Thanks for posting, my original A/NZ swap partner !
A very good little recipe! Nice color and variety of veggies. I used a package of frozen veggies (broccoli, sliced carrots, water chestnuts, sugar pea pods), some garlic salt. When they were hot and JUST starting to get a bit "fried" I dumped in about a pound of shrimp, along with some freshly made orzo. MMMM! My family doesn't like cilantro at all, so we left that out and didn't miss it a bit (of course!). I will post the photo when I get home tonight....!!! Made for Photo Tag back in 2008---

I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Food.com. Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
