Over the past year or so, I've been developing inexpensive and easy vegetarian recipes without ingredients that cause some of us problems. Several friends request these creations on a regular basis, so I created Eat Freely. These recipes are free from refined sugar, wheat products and flour. Most require fewer than five ingredients, and all are meals I eat often. I look forward to your suggestions and comments. Bon appétit!
1 tbsp butter or olive oil
1 can Green Beans
1/2 small Onion, thinly sliced
5 Garlic cloves, peeled and sliced
Salt to taste
Heat butter or oil for about a minute. Add garlic pieces and the onions in a frying pan over low heat. Cook for about five minutes. Drain the green beans and rinse them before adding them to the mixture. Go ahead and add them to the pan. Make sure to stir them! Once the beans are warmed, and the garlic is cooked to your satisfaction, remove from the heat and add some salt. The longer the garlic is cooked, the less harsh it tastes. Feel free to add more or less. It's all about personal taste.
SERVINGS: 1 - 2
NOTES: Many cans of vegetables contain sugar. Be sure to check the label.
1 tbsp Butter or 1 tbsp olive oil
1 lb Spinach leaves
1 small Onion, sliced
2 tbsp Chopped garlic
1 tsp Garam masala
Salt to taste
Heat butter or oil and onion slices in a frying pan over low heat. Make sure you stir them occasionally, so they don't burn. Cook until the onions are translucent. Add garlic, garam masala and spinach. Cook until spinach becomes wilted, and the onions start to caramelize.
Personally, I love me some spinach. However, If you want to even out the spinach taste, place this over rice or potato.
Substitute 2 tbsp water for the butter. Onions won't caramelize but should be soft.
