Green Beans, Mushrooms, Broccoli and Roasted Pecans

I was craving a bit of crunch. And since The Boy has been asking for quick, healthy recipes with yummy veggies in them, I grabbed some green beans, mushrooms, pecans, broccoli stalk… and crafted a meal to please the tummy and The Boy.

Ingredients:
– 1 cup of green beans, cut
– 1 cup of mushrooms, sliced
– ½ cup of broccoli stalk, remove the skin and then cut in small chunks
– 13 pecan halves, crushed and roasted
– 1 tsp. of olive oil
– 1 tbsp. of vinegar (you can use less, I just like my vinegar)
– dill, turmeric, salt

Preparation (about 30 minutes):
– Heat the oil in a medium size pan. Sauté the veggies on high heat (broccoli bits first, after a minute add the green beans, after another minute add the mushrooms). Stir often (I’m paranoid, so I stir continuously). When the beans reach your preferred degree of tenderness (about 9 minutes for me), add the dill and turmeric. Cook, while stirring, for another minute… then add the vinegar and salt.

Please note that because of my tummy issues, I don’t eat onions or garlic or anything too spicy. So, feel free to experiment… I always do. I add dill, turmeric (and ginger) to most of my meals because of their healing properties (and because they taste freaking yummy). This is a whole meal for me. 301 calories.

So, my Wicked Luvs, what are you cooking today?

  1. Hi Magaly! I cannot not to notice , you are pretty homely these days, cooking delicious meals and having a cozy time 🙂 This is so good!
    I think this dish is very tasty (and healthy too!). I use turmeric a lot in my cooking since I became used to Indian kitchen. My favourite and easiest is slightly fried a potatoes with cumin and turmeric (and a little bit of onion).

  2. Looks really yummy! My formative years were spent in Texas, so pecans (state tree and nut) are always in my house. I like that you paired them with green beans instead of the almonds that usually grace that veggie. I shall try this! Thanks!

  3. Always looking for good veggie recipes since we gave up meat last year(–no sacrifice at all, believe me–)and this sounds yum. I use a lot of tumeric and cumin also, as well as every herb I can get my hands on. Will definitely have to try it! I only have frozen broccoli & green beans in the house today though–but I may try it anyway.
