Broccoli & Carrot Stir Fry

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.
