High protein diets are recommended in a weight loss journey or even for just maintaining healthy weight but in the process many a times we sacrifice on our favorite cuisine or food especially if we follow a vegetarian or a vegan diet. Keeping all that in mind and my love for food I came up with high protein Chinese entrée with lots of flavor and health.
Black Beans Manchurian is a high protein oven baked entrée that is low in carbohydrate and high in nutrition and yet flavorsome dish in which the Manchurian balls are made out of purely black beans along with some crunchy cabbage and carrots flavored with mild seasoning and chickpea flour for binding. Yet this recipe is gluten free and vegan. Doesn’t that call for a celebration for all those health conscious people out there?
Yay!!!! A big shout out to all the Chinese food lovers……….
I cooked the sauce in minimum oil in which I sautéed celery, green onions, red bell pepper and flavored with ginger, garlic, soy sauce, vinegar, along with some crushed black pepper and a pinch of sugar to uplift the flavor and made the base of the gravy with homemade vegetable broth. LIP SMACKING!!!!!
My whole family devoured this entrée with garlic noodles and I paired this dish for myself with boiled brown rice. I was glad to be able to incorporate more protein into my foodie family and see them smiling throughout. 🙂
