I keep saying that I’m going to make more difficult meals this week since I’m off. I’m not doing so well on this!
Have any of you had Adzuki beans?? I couldn’t wait to add them back into my diet. They may be my favorite bean. They are supposed to be one of the easiest beans to digest, and it has the lowest fat content. They do not have to be soaked prior to cooking, and it says they only take 30 min to simmer. I had to simmer mine for an hour before they were ready. This threw a curveball in my dinner. We had to reheat everything!
Butternut Squash Salad- I didn’t measure anything… I just eyeballed amounts.
- 1 cubed butternut squash roasted with olive oil and cinnamon- 425° for 35 minutes
- Cooked bulgar wheat or millet
- Toasted Walnuts or Pecans
- Maple Syrup
Roast your butternut squash and cook your grain of choice. Toast walnuts or pecan in a dry skillet or microwave for 30 sec on high. Mix squash, grain, craisins, and nuts. Sprinkle with cinnamon and toss. Add maple syrup to taste. Balsamic vinegar would also be wonderful in this!
One more day for 2010!!
