Steamed Broccoli, Mushrooms and Peppers
If you look in your crisper drawer and find a little of this and a little of that you can throw together a quick and easy vegetable side dish. This version featuring broccoli, mushrooms and a red bell pepper, is fat free because I steamed the veggies in water flavored with miso tamari.
2 heads broccoli, cut into spears
1 pint mushrooms, sliced
1 red bell pepper, julienned
2 Tbsp miso tamari
Heat 1/4 cup water in a pot with 2 Tbsp of miso tamari or soy sauce. When the water comes to a simmer, add vegetables, cover the pot with a lid, and steam until broccoli is bright green and tender, about 5 minutes.
