Broccoli and Mushrooms are probably 2 of the tastiest vegetarian options out there. As a meat lover, there are few vegetables that can take the place of meat. These two fit the bill and when paired with juicy tomatoes for that tangy flavor, it becomes a beautiful dish, one I would maybe even choose over a meat based dish. So, like most of us, I wanted to eat more veg based dishes. Don’t get me wrong, I eat a lot of raw veggies like carrots, cucumbers and lettuce, but there’s always a protein with it which leans towards the non vegetarian aspect of food. Even broccoli, mushrooms and tomato for that matter, are great when paired with chicken, beef , pork etc. So, combining these veggies together with spices and herbs like rosemary, red chili flakes and fresh garlic can make a wholesome, tasty meal which can be eaten on their own as part of a low or no carbs diet, or with some flatbread or steamed rice.
