One of my favorite quick meals involves ½ dozen different veggies, salt/pepper, olive oil and cilantro. Super easy! Here’s how to make it:
Using a veggie chopper, chop up the following:
- Two onions
- Several celery stalks
- One carrot
- Two green zucchini (peeled)
- One roma tomato
- Handful of cilantro
I like to chop my veggies fine but it’s totally up to you based on your preference. I use a large sauté pan to cook everything except the tomato and cilantro, which I add last. I add 2-3 TBL of olive oil, salt & pepper to the veggies and then cook everything on medium heat for about 15 minutes. At this point, I add the chopped tomato and a handful of chopped cilantro to taste. Cook for another 5 minutes or so (or longer, if you prefer) and you’ve got a delicious and healthy dinner or side dish. If you’re looking to feed a family or larger group, just double the recipe.
- Serve with your favorite rice or quinoa for more depth.
- Not a vegan or vegetarian? You could easily cook chicken breast and add to this dish.
