Easy Veggie Saute

There’s nothing quite like the classic flavor of simple sauteed veggies!!!  And nothing quite like the knowledge that you aren’t just making your taste buds happy….you’re also making your body feel better one good choice at a time 🙂  The most labor-intensive part of this is chopping the veggies, haha!  I hope you enjoy, I sure did!!!

 

Here’s what you need:

  • 8 oz package of your favorite mushrooms.  Or you can use two different types 🙂
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper
  • 1 Yellow Bell Pepper
  • 1 Medium Yellow Squash
  • 1 Medium Zucchini
  • 2 Cloves of garlic
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 C Chicken Stock
  • 2 Tbsp Amino Acids, or Tamari Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano

Here’s how you do it:

  1. Prep! Chop your veggies and mince your garlic!
  2. Get a big pan for sauteeing…a wok would probably work too since its a lot of veggies!!  Add your coconut oil and heat to medium high.
  3. Saute your garlic for about one minute.
  4. Add your other veggies and saute for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add the liquids and oregano, stir so its all coated, and saute for about 4 more minutes.
  6. Enjoy!!!

Spicy Miso Veggies

I love grilled vegetables! Really! Especially when it includes zucchini and summer squash.

Miso Vegetables 6

My mouth is watering! Call me a newbie…but I didn’t even know that Miso was something more than a kind of soup at SushiLand.  Ha!  Apparently it’s something you can buy! And it’s yummy! This is another little gem that we got from perfectweightamerica.com.  It’s allowed on our cleanse! YEAH!  This recipe requires a little marinating, so give yourself an extra 30 minute jump start at least 😉  And just a repeat note…because of the cleanse we are doing, everything is supposed to be organic.   If you’re not into that, it works perfectly well with non-organic veggies 🙂 Oh, and its a big batch…so if you don’t want leftovers, or to feed quite a few…I’d halve it 😉

Here’s what you need:

  • 3 Tbsp Organic Coconut Oil, melted
  • 4 Tbsp Tamari Soy Sauce or Braggs Amino Acids
  • 4 Zucchini, organic
  • 4 Yellow Squash, organic
  • 2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper, organic
  • 2 Tbsp Miso
  • 3 Tbsp Tomato Sauce, organic
  • 1 Tbsp Sesame Oil
  • 1 tsp Chili Flakes
  • 1 Medium Red Onion

Side note….I JUST realized that I forgot the onion.  I love grilled onion.  My heart just cracked a little… Whelp, no biggie… I’ll just have to make this recipe again!!  YES!!!

Here’s how you do it 🙂

  1. Slice your veggies and put them in a bowl, or a big Ziploc if they fit.  
  2. Combine the Coconut Oil, Soy Sauce/Amino Acids, Vinegar, Miso, Tomato Sauce, Sesame Oil, and Chili Flakes.
  3. Pour the mixture over your veggies, toss so they’re all coated, and let marinate for at least 30 minutes.  The longer they sit, the spicier they will be 🙂
  4. Preheat your grill or grill pan to medium heat.  Grill veggies about 5 minutes per side.  Remove them.  Eat them.  Be surprised.  Eat some more.  Sigh.  Be happy!
