This recipe is bright, colorful and full of fresh vegetables that you can find at your local farmer’s market.

One cup of green tomatoes can provide up to 42 milligrams of Vitamin C. This is almost identical to red tomatoes, even though green tomatoes haven’t fully ripened yet.

Additionally, Eggplant is rich in dietary fiber which is essential for good gastrointestinal health.

Portabella mushrooms are also a surprising source of protein with only four calories per mushroom.
