Well...it's a lot of vegetables, coated very lightly with a very small amount of sauce. Whenever I'm behind on my daily servings of vegetables, or want a meatless mini-meal, this is good to whip up, and fairly flavorful. Easy to make. You can easily adapt this recipe to your own tastes.

Recipe Ingredients for Vegetables

1 cup broccolini or broccoli (chopped)
1/2 cup white mushrooms (sliced)
1/2 cup red onion (thinly sliced/chopped)
1/2 cup red bell pepper (chopped)
1 cup Low-sodium Chicken Broth
2 tbsp. Mozzarella, Part Skim Milk Cheese (shredded)
1 tsp cornstarch or all-purpose flour
2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. olive oil (optional)

Recipe Directions for Vegetables

  1. Add 1/4 cup of broth to a large non-stick pan on medium to high heat until simmering.

  2. Add red onion and cook for a short amount of time. Take care to not overcook. If liquid becomes scarce at any point, add some broth.

  3. Add mushrooms and simmer with onions until cooked through or softened. At this point the amount of liquid may be low so add about another 1/4 cup of broth to the mix.

  4. Add red pepper into the pan and cook for a short amount of time, stirring. Allow the amount of fluid in the pan to cook down very low.

  5. When there is barely any liquid in the pan, add broccolini or broccoli. Drizzle olive oil over top and stir, frying slightly. Drizzle balsamic vinegar over vegetables and mix in well. Cook for a short while, then add 1/4 cup broth and cook a short while longer.

  6. Remove vegetables from pan, leaving fluid behind. Add remaining broth and sprinkle over flour, mixing into a smooth fluid. Add 1 tbsp. mozzarella and stir/whisk until combined.

  7. Put vegetable back in pan, stirring and coating in sauce. Stir the rest of the cheese in with the vegetables, and leave about a teaspoon to sprinkle over finished product.

  8. Serve on it's own, with a meal, or just with a toasted whole wheat bagel.
