This is a super easy brunch dish that doesn’t require a lot of cooking. It’s versatile and you can use various vegetables and herbs you have. For example, instead of the vegetables I used, you can also use white mushrooms, green peas, green onions, green peppers, red peppers, broccoli, spinach, asparagus, sweet potatoes/yams, pumpkin, summer squash, seaweed, beans, tofu, shrimp, scallops, salmon, tuna, chicken (if you eat these animal products), etc. I made roasted pepper sauce to accompany this dish, but if you don’t want to take the extra steps to make the sauce, thousand island or ranch dressing or ketchup would also work. I like to eat it on top of a green salad, but this is optional. For more healthy gluten-free recipes, please visit my blog: www.InnerHarmonyNutrition.com.
