I love a great big plate of veggies, so today’s recipe is just one of my go-to meals when I want healthy, green, and easy. It is easy to customize to your desires. I love adding fresh, creamy, avocado, some hot sauce (sriracha), and some flax seed for extra protein. But it is good plain, with eggs, with fresh salsa, etc. Really it is so versatile, I never make it the same way twice.

Another thing to note is the vegetables are interchangable. Add in whatever you have, take out what you don’t or what you don’t like. Sometimes I add onion, cauliflower, asparagus. The key is cooking with stock or water, lightly seasoning, only cooking until just tender, so that you get the crisp, rich flavor, and topping with fresh deliciousness!
