Okay so these recipes may have a little more than just a side of protein, but the vegetables take the spotlight! Vegetables should always take the spotlight in any meal. I love vegetables and am always excited to try them in different ways. Over the break my mom and I went out to lunch to a local restaurant called the Pizza Grille and I had one of the best lunches I've had in a while. It was an eggplant roll with raisins, pine nuts and ricotta cheese, topped with a pesto sauce and placed in a marinara bath. It was so filling and my taste buds were in heaven! Talk about a great combination!
Not only are vegetables tasty and can be cooked so many different ways, but the color gives the dish such an enticing appeal!

Now onto my dishes...These are fairly simple to execute and not very time consuming either. They will definitely be on the docket for me in my house next year on the quick fixes list! First is what I called my Egg Fiesta Fritada!
Egg Fiesta Fritada
3 egg whites
~1/4 cup broccoli, spinach, tomatoes and onion   
2 tbl. salsa
1/4 of an avocado
sprinkle of cheese of your choosing
1. Combine all the vegetables, except the avocado, into a hot skillet and cook until tender.
2. Add egg whites...flip when bottom is cooked
3. After fritada is cooked through take off skillet and top with salsa, avocado and cheese!

Shrimp Salad
1/4 cup cucumber
5 cherry tomatoes
1/4 of an avocado
1 tbl. red onion
topping of blue cheese
Balsamic vinaigrette 
1. Its a salad so there's one step...combine!!

I loved the shrimp and avocado combo! And this dressing is perfect cause I don't like to use a lot and I didn't need a heavy dressing on it.
See lot's of veggies! I suppose you should expect that from a vegetarian...
