I bet we caught you by surprise with the title of this post ;).
After all, here at the DFB we’re known for our love of all things fried, frosted, or otherwise fixed up in the name of vacation indulgence! It’s not that we’re opposed to veggies, believe it or not. (I love ‘em!) It’s just that in the Vacation Kingdom that is Disney World, we enjoy showing you all sorts of decadent vacation treats you might not typically encounter.
But sometimes maybe you just feel the need to switch things up for whatever reason… to counteract overindulgence, or just fulfill a sudden craving for more simple, natural foods. For such times, I’d like to introduce you to one of my (surprisingly, I know!) favorite finds in Epcot: Steamed Vegetables and Rice at the Japan Pavilion’s Katsura Grill.
Now, the Steamed Vegetables and Rice aren’t sold as a combo – they are each items that are ordered separately. You’ll find them under the Side options on the menu.
Therefore, each item is served in its own bowl as well.
The Steamed Vegetables are exactly that – solely steamed veggies. You won’t find any sauce or added seasonings here. What you will find is a simple and colorful blend of steamed vegetables including carrots (orange and yellow), broccoli, zucchini, and sugar snap peas (the only way I can ever deal with peas). I’ve never had an over-steamed, mushy batch. Mine have always been nicely prepared.
I don’t always get the white sticky rice, but it’s a great addition if you’re looking for something a little more filling.
Together, I think both items make a nice, light lunch. And coming in at $4.50 ($2.50 for the veggies, $2.00 for the rice), that’s not too bad for a small meal!
So, there you have it… a post about Steamed Vegetables from your friends here at the Disney Food Blog. Never thought you’d see the day, did you ? Yeah, we’re not all bad.
