Chicken and broccoli stir fry
Despite the name, this Chinese dish is not necessarily vegetarian. Chicken and broccoli are packed with antioxidants, fiber, and protein, making them great choices for a heart-healthy meal. They are also packed with vitamins and healthy fats. And because they are both so healthy, you can be sure that you’ll be getting at least one serving of vegetables with every bite. Read on to learn more about the healthy benefits of broccoli.
To make the sauce, mix arrowroot starch with three tablespoons cold water, then whisk it into the sauce. Add the chicken and broccoli to the pan. Stir-fry for about one minute. After that, add the broccoli and onions, stirring constantly. Add a little more oil to the pan, if necessary, until all the vegetables are coated with the sauce. Cook until the broccoli is crisp-tender and the chicken is cooked through. Serve hot, and enjoy!
Cauliflower fried rice
If you’re in the mood for some fried rice but want to avoid the carbs, cauliflower frying rice might be the perfect option for you. This rice-like vegetable cooks up in under 10 minutes and is a good substitute for rice. Plus, cauliflower is low-carb, which makes it a healthy option for those on a ketogenic diet. Just make sure you have the ingredients prepared, as cauliflower can become soggy if it’s left uncooked for long. You can also use a larger skillet to “fry” the vegetables, which will give you more room for your ingredients. The size of the skillet is important because too-closed vegetables will cook up as mush. The same goes for the eggs, but you want to scramble them to ensure they don’t cook up too much.
After adding the rice to the pan, you can add other ingredients. You can add soy sauce or sliced green onion for a flavorful kick, if desired. You can also add eggs, but make sure to scramble them first in another pan or bowl. Once they’re set, you can stir them into the cauliflower. Finally, you can add some lemon juice or chili flakes for additional seasoning. Cauliflower fried rice is a great way to save money on takeout, while enjoying healthy food that’s also convenient for you.
There are plenty of great taco ideas out there, and mushrooms are one of them. The meaty texture of mushrooms makes them perfect for tacos, and they soak up seasoning well. These little gems look and taste like steak! Half of my children didn’t even realize that they weren’t steak! Plus, they’re low-calorie and packed with trace minerals and vitamins. And they’re also budget-friendly!
You can spice up these tacos with hot sauce or salsa to add some kick. Portobello mushrooms are the best choice for mushroom tacos, but feel free to experiment and try your favorite combination. You can also use peppers, onions, and spices to customize your filling. Add some cheese, and you’ll have the perfect meal! If you’re feeling adventurous, you can add any type of vegetable you like.
Easy baked teriyaki salmon
For a quick, healthy dinner, prepare easy baked teriyaki salmon. The salmon skin is edible, so be sure to remove it before serving. To make meal prep even easier, prepare the salmon in advance and keep it in the fridge for up to two days. If you have leftovers, simply reheat the salmon in a skillet with a little water. You can serve leftover salmon with rice or vegetables, or make burgers with it.
To make the teriyaki sauce, heat a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the teriyaki sauce and let it simmer for 4-5 minutes, or until it thickens slightly. Once it has finished baking, drizzle the glazed salmon with the remaining sauce. Serve immediately, or let it sit for several hours for the flavors to mingle. You can also use fresh ginger and garlic.
