I have a hard time getting 5 servings of fruit and vegetables into my diet. If I eat a salad, I usually make a pretty big one so I can count it as 2 servings, but even I get tired of salads everyday! Vegetables are good when they are fresh from the garden, but in the winter, I rely on canned or frozen mostly and those are hard to dress up w/o adding a lot of calories. I found this recipe in the WW book and it is quite tasty! It is only 1 point per serving, which is about cup.
Frozen (or fresh) broccoli florets
8 oz. fresh mushrooms sliced
1/2 cup drained sliced water chestnuts
3 T. sweet and sour sauce
2 T. water
1/4 tsp. salt
Saute your veggies in a bit of olive oil/cooking spray until crisp-tender. Add the sweet and sour sauce and toss to coat all and heat through. Serve.
The smell reminded me of a Chinese buffet, but it felt more healthy :-) and no cat on a stick! I think this would be a great dish if you added some cooked pieces of chicken or some shrimp with some brown rice. But, it was great having a serving of vegetables for only 1 point!
