I had onion, garlic, golden cherry tomatoes, zucchini, broccoli, cilantro and a smoked chicken breast from Chestnut Farms, a local farm to work with...so here's what I did.
|Sauteing the garlic and onions in coconut oil|
I minced the garlic and sliced the onions and gave them a saute in coconut oil....
I used a vegetable peeler to make long slices of the zucchini into "noodles" and set them aside.
I chopped the smoked chicken breast into bite size pieces and also set them aside.
After the garlic and onion softened up, I added in the broccoli and tomatoes to cook for a couple of minutes, until broccoli was still crisp and the tomatoes started to split open. The smoked chicken went in next - it was already cooked and only needed to warm through.
|Zucchini noodles go in last for a quick wilt|
Since I wanted a little sauce, I added in about 1/2 cup of coconut water and 1-2 TBS coconut concentrate (which is whole coconut in a concentrated form - I get it from Tropical Traditions). I let that simmer down for only a brief minute and added zucchini in last, just to wilt.
I finished the dish with a squeeze of lime juice and chopped cilantro. It took minutes to prepare and was really satisfying, and provided me w.a few meals worth of food.
|Dinner is served!|
Stock up your pantry w.some key ingredients such as coconut water or coconut milk, aromatic veggies (your onions, garlic, carrots, celery), some fresh veggies and proteins and a meal is just minutes away :) Enjoy!
