If you are craving greens and want a quick, easy and tasty dinner – keep it simple by bulking up with broccoli and loading up on the garlic. This was an asparagus/broccoli/mushroom stirfry served on a bed of groats.
Portobello mushrooms are great for giving a different texture in dishes, some say a “meaty” texture.
I kept it simple with ingredients as sometimes it can be a chore chopping loads of veg so this was perfect coming home from work after a long day.
Groats are great as they have a low Glycaemix Index, making them a good alternative to rice and for those who are trying to manage their blood sugars or who hace PCOS. I found my groats in a local polish shop.
- 1 bunch of asparagus
- 1 tblsp sesame oil
- 5 cloves of garlic
- Half a crown of broccoli
- 1 large portobello mushroom
- Large handful of spinach
- Rock salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup of groats
1) Pop your groats in a large pan of water to cook for 15 minutes or as instructions state.
2) Prep your veg and stirfry the asparagus on a high heat with oil and garlic. Chuck in rest of your veg and flavour with S&P.
3) Serve and eat up.
Easy right? 🙂 I got the thumbs up from my food critic (other half) who said he’d eat it every day. Wahoo!
This dish was definitely inspired by our favourite type of food – Vietnamese, especially morning glory.
