Quick Easy Healthy Dinner Recipes: Chinese Style Veggies



Great start for this series of quick easy healthy dinner recipes.

If you met me you know I love China, I love Chinese style veggies and even more I love all kind of quick easy healthy dinner recipes!

So I did not want to wait longer to share this great recipe with you. I always look for my dinner to be low-calorie and fulfilling at the same time. You may be wondering how is that possible; well, let me share my secret “not so secret” with you. Vegetables are the best option to consider for a dinner.

Vegetables are immensely fulfilling because of their high content of fiber and guess what?! they are very low calorie! Furthermore, vegetables are so nutritious and allow your body to get nourished the best way ever possible.

Even though I involve veggies all around my day (not only dinner time), I have a special care for veggies during nighttime. Because of their high content of fiber and nutrients, some veggies can get hard to digest. So for dinner I prefer my veggies tenderly cooked or like Italians call it “Al dente”.

Some times I have them raw during dinner but it’s because I’ve learned what vegetables work right on my body even during the evening. So, I invite you to start watching closely how your body responds to the food in order to make healthier choices.

Feel free to add your favorite meat option to these veggies. For example (and very popular in Chinese Style food), some diced chicken breast will play the role greatly. To be honest, people in China eat more pork than beef or chicken. However I know chicken is so common in Western Chinese food and we all love it!

Remember to diminish you meat intakes, let’s turn a little more animal friendly, planet friendly and this way a lot more healthier!

As you can see in the pictures, I also added yellow bell pepper and some penne pasta chopped in small pieces that I had from a day before. I guess it’s all about creativity!

  1. As a vegetarian, I’m always looking for new veggie recipes to try. Your image captured my attention, and I swear I was salivating by the time I finished reading! I’m looking forward to trying your recipe but since I’m trying to build muscle with my diet and workout program right now, I might throw in some tofu for added protein as well.

    • Extra tofu sounds simply amazing, Jennifer! I’m honored you liked it! OMG, I think I’m craving some now! haha :) Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I am not a vegetarian, nor do I like mushrooms… However, I did find the image of your dish very appealing. Looks Great.

    • It is very savory James! Promise you will love it. You can forget mushrooms and just add veggies you like. Some chicken and shrimps would taste awesome with this too!
