Foodie Friday: Another Mexi Meal and Veggies
1/2 cup red beans
2 oz of Local Marquez Lamb and Beef Sausage - No sugar!
This sausage is good even better than the chorizo. My go to way to cook this and any similar sausage it to pan brown it with a little oil then put it into 350 deg oven for about 20 min.
1 cup steamed yuppie veggies (see below)
topped with some of the husk cherry salsa
Yuppie Veggies include: carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and until summer is over local zucchini. We stole the veggie mix name and idea from the no longer in operation Paradise Bakery & Cafe. If any of you local and far remember the goodness of the cafe you can now prepare it in your own home with their cookbook!
We eat these veggies either steamed or sauteed with many of our meals. Sometimes I jazz it up with a basil vinaigrette or top with some pesto. Since it's all cut up there is no excuse not to eat veggies every day. We go through about 2 heads of cauliflower and broccoli, 3-4 carrots and 3-5 zucchinis each week. That's in addition to all the other veggies we eat during the week like okra, eggplant, green beans etc. If the kids start eating as much veggies as my husband and I are we will need even more.
