Spicy Thai Broccoli
This dish is delicious meatless, but if you must, you can add chicken to round out your main dish. You can also add mushrooms, chickpeas and/or avocado for more meatless protein. Broccoli, rich in calcium, protein, fiber, Vitamins C, D, B6, as K, as well as folic acid, zinc, magnesium, manganese, beta-carotenes, and anti-oxidants, really shines in this entree, filling you up…not out! Share in the comments below if you make this dish, and how you enjoy it. Simple, easy, delicious! This is one of my go-to meals!
