Vegetarian food recipes are not hard to come by, but there is also a tendency to gorge on bad carbs and processed foods once one tries to go meatless. I am confident that lack of food ideas causes this. My vegetarian broccoli recipe is one of the many that I cook this superfood such that everyone at home can enjoy it (including the kids).
What do you need to make the vegetarian broccoli recipe
A good non-stick frying pan would be a good investment:
The recipe can be a side dish or a vegetarian broccoli salad; it is up to you how you serve it. It requires very few ingredients i.e.
- 2 x cloves of garlic (chopped)
- 1/2 x teaspoon of cumin
- 2 x tablespoons of oil (I exclusively use coconut oil in all my cooking)
Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry all the above ingredients together. By now you can speculate that your vegetarian broccoli recipe will be tasty and delicious.
You will also need:
- 1 x cup of broccoli florets
- 1/2 x cup of chopped carrots
- 1/2 x cup of sweetcorn
Add these to the frying pan and saute until they are adequately cooked. Add salt and pepper to taste.
You can consume this vegetarian broccoli recipe as a side dish, or sprinkle lentils, split peas or any other high protein source to have a balanced meal. For Lacto-ovo vegetarians, dicing an egg and adding it in will also provide a wholesome dinner.
Vegetarian food recipes are plenty and do not take much to whip up. That meat has become a staple in our diets is what makes us scratch our heads trying to figure out how to put together the next meal.
