Fruit also contains protein. One cup of raw banana contains 1.64 protein grams - about the same of a cinnamon roll. Imagine that - protein in a typical taboo food for those individuals who are on a weight loss plan. Fact is, the cinnamon roll is made chiefly of flour which is substantial in protein content.
What about vegetables? One cup of red, ripe tomatoes contains an impressive 1.58 protein grams. And speaking of tomatoes, let's move on to our roasted vegetable dinner menu, shall we? Here is a short list of the ingredients necessary for this recipe - and take a look at their impressive protein content:
Mushrooms, 3.39 protein grams per cup
Green Beans, 1 cup contains 2.36 protein grams
Carrots: 1.19 protein grams per cup
Broccoli: 5.70 protein grams per cup
Potato: 5.05 protein grams
Cauliflower: 2.90 protein grams per cup
To prepare this recipe you will need the following ingredients which creates two very generous servings: extra virgin olive oil, 1 cup of button mushrooms, 1 cup of broccoli florets, 1 cup of cauliflower florets, 2 cups of snap green beans left long with the strings removed, 2 large carrots peeled with the ends snipped off and 1 large potato that has been peeled and cut in half, length-wise.
If you're using large carrots, you'll want to cut these into smaller pieces so that they will cook faster.
You will also need a small sheet of foil; smear with a bit of vegetable or olive oil.
Place the cleaned vegetables into a deep bowl. Add 1 to 2 Tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and toss them about so that the vegetables are coated with a bit of the oil. Add salt and cracked pepper to suit your personal taste.
Also sprinkle the vegetables with dried parsley and a good dose of lemon pepper.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until the vegetables are tender. Serve with unsweetened ice tea and a chunk of your favorite crusty bread along with a serving of reduced fat margarine.
