This is a picture of how this recipe looked when we made it. I highly recommend FORKS OVER KNIVES COOKBOOK for simple and healthy and tasty recipes. I didn’t think something with so few ingredients could possibly taste good. I was wrong
- 1 POUND FRESH ASPARAGUS, TRIMMED AND CUT INTO 1-INCH PIECES
- 1 RED BELL PEPPER, CUT INTO 1/4-INCH THICK SLIVERS
- 8 OUNCES CREMINI MUSHROOMS, THINLY SLICED
- 2 GARLIC CLOVES, MINCED
- 1 TABLESPOON BRAGG LIQUID AMINOS
- HEAT A LARGE SKILLET OVER HIGH HEAT AND ADD THE ASPARAGUS, BELL PEPPER, AND MUSHROOMS. STIR-FRY FOR 4 TO 5 MINUTES, ADDING WATER 1 TO 2 TABLESPOONS AT A TIME TO KEEP THE VEGETABLES FROM STICKING. ADD THE GARLIC AND COOK ANOTHER MINUTE. ADD THE LIQUID AMINOS AND TOSS WELL. SERVE IMMEDIATELY.
MY NOTE: YOU CAN USE ANY KIND OF MUSHROOMS – WE USED WHITE BUTTON
MUSHROOMS THE FIRST TIME.
FROM FORKS OVER KNIVES:
"STIR FRYING IS AN ASIAN TECHNIQUE FOR COOKING MEAT AND VEGETABLES QUICKLY
SO THAT THEY RETAIN THEIR TEXTURE AND FLAVOR. IN THIS RECIPE YOU CAN BE
CREATIVE AND SUBSTITUTE OTHER VEGETABLES, SUCH AS SNOW PEAS AND FRESH,
THINLY SLICED CARROTS, FOR THE ASPARAGUS."
This is all there is to it:
Brussels sprouts and butternut squash tossed with about a tablespoon of olive oil, bake at 350 degrees for about a half hour. Add some dried cranberries and bake for another 3 to 5 minutes or so.
Preparing for a plot to hatch
What would be the mood to match?
Who would find the point to catch?
Remember, to remember
don’t get too far ahead
don’t catch up to the future
stay right here instead
I’m consistently trying to figure things out
I wonder and wander through pages of doubt
After resolving an issue or two
Seventeen others arise into view
It’s exasperating and challenging and stupid and fun
with all sorts of emotions rolled into one
Mostly, I’m grateful for how things unfold
It could all wind up tragic
if truth would be told
Surely that’s life
It goes up
It goes down
My goal is to greet it with less of a frown
We are all kinds of brave as we face-off each trial
and our arms are wide open as life kicks us a smile
I want to get back to the mind set when I was a kid and didn’t worry about who got elected and what could go wrong because of it.
I would like to be informed but detached from the outcome.
Bewitched, bothered and befuddled am I!
Non Lo so
I just don’t know
Thinking it over
Just makes it grow
No. No. No.
And let it go…
One more easy idea for a really good meal. Made up of left-over mushrooms, left-over marinara sauce and left-over vegetable broth; added in a can of beans (I used pinto), cut up some carrots, celery, sweet red pepper, onion and frozen peas; pressed a clove or two of garlic in and then there was soup. It’s a good way to use up whatever left-overs you might have hanging around in the refrigerator where they do not like to linger.
