I love veggies and make my afternoon meals with vegetables and grains. This meal is a low calorie, low fat meal, and it fills you up because of the grains.
I only use 1/4 cup grains.
If you are looking for something to fill you up, grains can do it!!
This is a simple steaming recipe.
1/2 cup cubed eggplant
5 baby portabella mushrooms
1 cup Chinese frozen veggies ( my veggies included baby corn/peas with noodles)
The Chinese noodles/ veggies can also be bought canned or fresh.
Today I used frozen.
Start out with some cooking spray in a frying pan and add the frozen veggies first.
Then add eggplant, ( it takes a bit of time to cook.)
Next add the baby mushrooms
Finally, add the grains ( pre-cooked). I like to cook my grains for the week. This week
I cooked organic whole grain wheat which takes hours to cook ( follow directions on package). Some whole grains call for rinsing and soaking overnight before cooking, but if you do not soak, you need to cook for at least 1 hour (bring to boil and simmer for 1 hour).
Then sprinkle with some low sodium soy sauce and let the veggies and grains steam for about 10 minutes.
