  1. Wash and dry the squash. Heat squash in the microwave on high for 1-2 minutes to soften the skin.

  2. Carefully peel the squash using a vegetable peeler or small knife. Remove seeds. Cut squash into 1/2-inch cubes.

  3. Peel and chop onion.

  4. Add oil to a large non-stick skillet and heat over medium until oil is shimmering and flows smoothly like water.

  5. Add squash, vinegar and water to pan. Stir to coat squash. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook until squash is tender, about 15 minutes.

  6. Remove lid and add drained beans, onion, garlic, and oregano. Cook, stirring occasionally, until beans are heated through, about 5 minutes.

  7. Remove from pan and serve warm.

  8. Tips: Add even more color (and nutrients!) to this dish by stirring in spinach or kale while beans are heating. Serve with a side of whole grains such as brown rice.
