Healthy AND Delicious stir fry dinner
A friend brought her electric fry pan to work several years ago and made this for the card players, of which I was one. It sounds too simple to be as delicious as it is, but try it and you'll be surprised.
I made enough for several people, you may cut the recipe in half if you're only serving 2.
"Stir Fry Squash with onions & green beans"
2 large spanish onions, sliced, separated into rings or chopped, as you prefer
garlic to taste (5 cloves at least) minced
put this in one frying pan, with a mixture of oil (2 Tcanola or olive and a T or so of butter for flavor) Simmer slowly with a lid on, add a few tablespoons of water if it doesn't seem to be softening up. Turn occasionally.
Meanwhile, prepare the following:
2 zucchini, sliced into 1/4" slices
2 yellow squash, sliced same way
1 lb fresh only green beans, snap off the stem end or cut with a knife, cut in half if real long
Start the green beans first, since they take longer, same thing, a couple T oil and a couple T of margarine or butter. Add squashes after about 15 minutes. Cook until desired degree of tenderness.
Remove to plates, and top with onions.
Vegit is a delcious low sodium seasoning avaliable in health food stores, in a green and yellow glass jar. It seems to be in the process of being renamed low sodium Spike but is still in the yellow & green jar. It is made of dehydrated mushrooms, garlic, parsley - everything good. You won't even miss salt.
Serve with fresh tomatoes or salad and a baked sweet potato.
A very large sweet potato can be baked in the skin in about 15 minutes in the microwave. I just sliced open the skin, peeled it quickly, sliced in half, put in a pat or two of butter, and then cubed.
This really makes a nice, light dinner.
