Sautéed Vegetables with ghee

Sautéed vegetables with ghee is a delicious and healthy recipe that is perfect for kids who love vegetables.

Today I had a wonderful conversation with a friend from Argentina. Her 8 years old daughter feels naturally inclined to vegetables, pulses, nuts and fruits (she prefers apples to biscuits!).

It's wonderful to hear about little Emma's love for healthy foods and her mother's willingness to explore new alternatives. Cooking together is a great way to bond and create healthy habits that will last a lifetime. This recipe for sauteed vegetables with ghee is a perfect way to incorporate Emma's favorite veggies into a delicious and nutritious meal. We hope Emma and her mother enjoy cooking and eating this dish together!

Here's how to make it:


  • 1 teaspoon cow's ghee or olive oil

  • 2cm grated fresh ginger (peeled)

  • Rock salt to taste

  • Black pepper to taste

  • Broccoli

  • String beans

  • Any other vegetables you have in your fridge, such as cauliflower, carrots, parsnip, celery, or peppers


1. Heat the ghee or coconut oil in a pan and add the grated ginger. Once you start to smell the ginger, add the vegetables over medium heat.

2. Add a little water and cover the pan with a lid.

3. Let the vegetables cook for 5-7 minutes until they are tender and crispy.

4. Serve with basmati rice, pasta, or your preferred option.

This recipe is a great way to incorporate more vegetables into your child's diet and can be customised to include their favorite veggies. It's also a great way to introduce them to the delicious flavour of ghee and the health benefits it provides.
