Sometimes all you want to eat is something really comforting but healthy at the same time and I suppose there are certain vegetables aka sabzi that do the needful.
As a kid I used to love potatoes and I still do. Rather I tolerate them too & that matters. I remember mom cooking different types of veggies for meals & she played with combination for the veggies her was going to make.
I love Aloo Matar Gobi and it is so comforting, I can eat it alone without roti or rice.
It is gluten free, full of nutrients Like vitamins, minerals, protein & essential fats & made with fresh produce Sabzi. However, it has some fiber still it is gastroparesis friendly.
