Veronica's Healthy Living
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!
