Want to take a break from animal based protein and feel full really quickly? 🌱 Don't go on a diet, just eat differently! .
Try this recipe. I guarantee you, sugar cravings will not appear later. The extra fiber and water contained in the zucchini and mushrooms will stabilize your glucose level. And mushrooms are a good source of protein (average 2g and up to 9g for 3oz of uncooked shiitake), fiber (half of its total carbohydrate content!), vitamins B and anti-cancer substances.
Ingredients for 4 servings or 6-8 side dish portions:
-3 to 4oz fresh shiitake mushrooms (you can substitute with other mushrooms like button mushrooms but it wonâ€™t have the same delicious taste)
-1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
-2 tbs. lemon juice
-1 medium shallot, minced
-2-3 cloves garlic, finely minced
-1 .5 to 2 pounds zucchini (I prefer the large ones, less spiralizing lol)
-3 tbs. each of thinly sliced chives and parsley
-Freshly grated Parmesan or pecorino
-Salt and pepper to your taste.
