Eat-your-greens shak

Peas, brocolli and green bean shak

A very quick shak to make as it uses frozen veg – however it’s full of flavour and goodness. If you are aghast at using frozen, fresh will do but just take slightly longer.  I like the vegetables to have some bite so tend to stir fry the shak until the veg are just tender.


  • 1 cup frozen broccoli
  • 1 cup frozen green beans
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 tbs groundnut oil
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 tsp grated ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 green chili chopped finely
  • 1 tsp salt (nimak)
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder (lal murcha)
  • 1/2 tsp coriander cumin powder (dhanna jeeru)
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric (hurder)
  • 4 curry leaves
  • Lemon juice to taste (I find a good squeeze of a half sufficient)


  • In a large pan, heat oil over medium flame and throw in cumin.
  • Once cumin are sizzling, add ginger, garlic and chili. Stir
  • Add the vegetables, spices and curry leaves. Stir gently until the veg have softened slightly
  • Add lemon juice to taste, stir and cook for further 2 minutes
  • Serve with basmati rice.
