Quick and Easy Recipe: Squash Sauté
I knew Saturday was going to be a busy day, so I did a quick sauté with squash, mushrooms, onions, and a few aminos topped over quinoa. Because every day is different, I like to make quick and easy meals that are not only filling but delicious. In my opinion, any variation of sautéed vegetables are the perfect meal because it takes no time to cook, they are packed with vitamins and nutrients, and you can flavor it up with liquid aminos, teriyaki, sauce, tahini dressing, or any sauce or seasoning you like.
This specific recipe calls for four main ingredients that have health benefits for our bodies. The main ingredients are squash, mushrooms, onion, and quinoa. Squash is high in fiber, vitamins A, B6, and C, and potassium. Mushrooms contain vitamin C, iron, and are a source of dietary fiber. They are also known to prevent cancer. Onions are probably my favorite plants to cook with.
The thing I love about onion is that it adds flavor to anything. Not only are onions great for taste but that have many amazing benefits that even, I am learning about. Onions are a great source of vitamin C and B6, iron, and potassium. Beyond that, they can help improve sexual health, enhance brain and eye health, fight cancer, improve heart health, improve the immune system, and promote healthy digestion. Lastly, quinoa, which is rich in protein and fiber. Quinoa has twice as much fiber as other grains, contains all nine essential amino acids, and can be your new rice alternative.
With quinoa, you can make soups, salads, burger, and so much more.
