Winter is the time for cozy, comfort food. Tom and I love our comfort food on the lighter side as it’s easier on the digestion. That’s why I created this dish – to help my own digestion. There is no combination anywhere like this. The most important part is the spinach and the softness of the vegetable. It’s also healthy for your hair and skin, along with the safe beauty and body products I use from beautycounter.com/gailingis
I hope you give it a try. Enjoy!
GAIL’S VEGGIE COMPOTE:
Sweet onion ¼ cup diced
Spinach (6 oz package)
Fresh string beans canned 14.2oz
Mixed peppers 5 oz from a frozen sixteen oz bag
Organic brown rice 10 oz frozen
Asian Style Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette 2 tablespoons
- Ingredients can be found at Trader Joe’s even the spray olive oil (it’s fab, I use instead of Pam). TJ’s does not have the canned French string beans, supermarket only, but you can cook their French frozen string beans, boil until soft, (7 or 8 minutes)
- Spray a large skillet with olive oil and heat
- Add and sauté one small diced sweet onion
- Add 6 ounces of washed baby spinach (I use TJ’s it is already washed three times before being packaged).
- Add one 14.2 oz can of French cut string beans (pour off all liquid) continue to sauté and mix with the onion and spinach (We want these string beans to be very digestible and soft—frozen or fresh never get soft enough for my tummy, but I have used TJ frozen ones and micro-wave, with a drop of water, for seven minutes before adding to my skillet.
- Continue to mix and cook and add seasoning.
- Add 5 oz of red, green, yellow peppers, (From a sixteen-ounce bag of frozen peppers) mix in and continue to cook on medium flame.
- When all is hot and mixed well, add 10-ounces of pre-cooked brown organic rice. I use TJ’s frozen organic brown rice. Only have to cook for 3 minutes. (Make a small cut in one corner to permit steam to escape).
- I season a little as I cook this with Asian Style Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette salad dressing from Trader Joe’s. Or Carolina Gold Barbecue Sauce from Trader Joe’s. Or your favorite spices. I have even used a spicy barbecue red sauce.
- This is healthy and tasty. You can adjust to your own taste and have it just the way you like it.
- Let me know if you have any questions. This is a great way to eat your veggies.
I don’t need to add salt with my seasonings.
If you want a touch of sweetness you can add tomatoes and or blueberries.
This dish is yummy, yummy and so good for your tummy!
