Butternut Squash and Black Beans
Try this easy butternut squash recipe packed with fiber, protein, and potassium.
Wash and dry the squash. Heat squash in the microwave on high for 1-2 minutes to soften the skin.
Carefully peel the squash using a vegetable peeler or small knife. Remove seeds. Cut squash into 1/2-inch cubes.
Peel and chop onion.
Add oil to a large non-stick skillet and heat over medium until oil is shimmering and flows smoothly like water.
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.
Remove lid and add drained beans, onion, garlic, and oregano. Cook, stirring occasionally, until beans are heated through, about 5 minutes.
Remove from pan and serve warm.
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.
