This, my friends, is the recipe that taught me just how to love & appreciate my veggies- a remarkable accomplishment given my decidedly veggie-phobic nature. This is one of my favorite Ultimate Reset recipes that I continue to make quite frequently!
1/2 small head broccoli, cut into bite-size florets
1 carrot, cut in thin diagonal slices
1/2 medium zucchini, cut in chunky half-moons (I use summer squash from our garden and this tastes just fine as a sub!)
1/4 red bell pepper, cut in 1 inche strips
2 tsps. extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp water
Juice of 1/2 small lemon
1 or 2 cloves garlic, crushed (or more, to taste)
1 1/2 tsp Bragg Liquid Aminos (optional- this is a healthy option to use in place of soy sauce as well- I loooooooooooove it!)
Heat oil in large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and stir 15 to 20 seconds. Add carrots and broccoli. Stir frequently for one minute. Add water and cover for one minute. Uncover and add zucchini and bell pepper. Cook, stirring for a few minutes until almost tender. Add lemon juice and aminos (if desired) and remove from heat. Veggies should be cooked but still crisp. Serves 1.
Although the lemon juice and aminos are optional, I think these are essential- they give it such a zippy flavor and I think this is why this dish has been the game-changer for me in changing my anti-veggie stance.
