Mix veg with Cilantro

Whenever I can’t decide what to cook for dinner, I take out one of each veggie from my fridge and make a mix veg. This time when I was making mix-veg I decided to give it a little green twist and added Cilantro puree to the vegetables while cooking. It not only gave a beautiful color to my dish but also a wonderful aroma. In case you are not a big fan of cilantro you can totally skip that, it will still turn out to be equally good minus the green color and aroma of cilantro
