Vegetables Can Make a Hearty Meal

Perhaps I should mind my own business: but I would love to see more people eating vegetables for a main course. Everyone knows it is important to eat a lot of vegetables–the issue is learning how to prepare them in a way that feels satisfying. I made this for dinner tonight and it was very tasty–I’m still stuffed!

Hearty Vegetables Over Green Beans

Ingredients:

  • Green and yellow summer squash, thickly sliced
  • Green beans
  • Crushed garlic
  • Fresh basil
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Lasagna Sauce (recipe below)

Steps:

  1. Saute green beans in olive oil, salt and a little water for a few minutes–set aside
  2. Saute rest of ingredients-leave some basil aside
  3. Cook over low heat until squash is fork tender
  4. Serve over green beans with fresh cut basil on top

Lasagna Sauce

 Layer tomato sauce, slices of summer squash, pesto, goat cheese, basil and sliced tomato. Top with olive oil and a dash of salt. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

I hope this recipe inspires your wild and crazy vegetable adventures!-Julie
