I eat meat, but sometimes it's nice to eat a completely vegatarian (evan began-friendly) meal; most of us consume way too many animal products anyway, such as eggs, dairy, poultry, fish, or meat. If you're watching what you eat, the best thing you can do is increase your intake of plants! This is a great weight loss recipe as it's low in fat, carbs and cholesterol, but it's also great for those just trying to eat healthier.
In this recipe I use mangold, but you can also use bok choi, chard, or anything you like that's green! For a meat option, substitute the tofu in this recipe with chicken, pork or beef stir fry meat. If you've never tried tofu, give it a shot! It has the texture of a spongy cheese, and tastes sort of meat-like when prepared this way.
Here's the step-by-step on how to do it!
I'm really not big on exact measurements, but here is roughly what you will need:
Leafy greens (Swiss chard, spinach, bok choy) about 500-700g
A box of mushrooms
Plain tofu (about 500g)
2 cloves of garlic
Several handfuls of cherry tomatoes
Juice of half a lemon/lime
Let me know if you try it out and what you think of it! You can serve it with brown or wild rice mix, if you're watching your carbs, there's plenty of protein in this to skip it.
