Today I read this article about healthy living. One of the main paths to a healthy life is supposedly to refrain from eating animal protein. But, as you all know, healthy or not, I just love animal protein once in a while. Chicken, pork, lamb,beef, seafood, duck, goose, I love it all.
But, tonight I had a strong craving for rice and vegetables. Since Bella is usually my only dinner guest, I mostly get to decide on the menu all by myself. So today’s dinner came along that ” healthy path ” .
“Despite” being healthy, it was delicious and a joy to eat. But tomorrow – Steak 🙂

I couldn’t eat the walnuts but that is an amazing looking dish.
Very nice Chef, occasionally I enjoy a meat free meal, and the textures, and flavors in your dish should satisfy even us hard core carnivores. Thank you, Richard

Beautiful dish!! Very colorful. As we all know people buy with their eyes and come back because of the taste!
Thank’s Chuck 🙂

That looks like a perfect Summer meal, I too try to cut back on meat etc. I’m passing on this recipe to my vegetarian friends, who will use the vegetable broth instead of the chicken, I’m sure the taste will still be great! Thanks again for another great idea, Edwina
Michael, just replace the walnuts with something else crunchy 🙂
Edwina, maybe your friend likes some of the other vegetarian recipes on ChefsOpinion 🙂
Bon Appetit !
