You’re looking at my Sauteed Sesame Greens, a side dish that you can make in under 10 minutes!
It’s a great recipe to have in your cooking arsenal this holiday season, but it’s also perfect on a casual weeknight at home. It’s a simple take on the sauteed spinach with crunchy lightly cooked green beans, crunchy almonds, protein-packed hemp seeds, and bright lemon.
Kale and spinach are the stars of this recipe, and here’s why: they’re part of the cruciferous vegetable family. These dark leafy greens are high in antioxidants and minerals. They contain special phytonutrients that have been shown to help decrease inflammation in the body as well to have anti-cancer benefits. As with most fruits and vegetables, they both contain great amounts of fiber which help our digestive system moving, keeps us fuller for a longer period of time, and releases a steady flow of energy into our bodies. Bonus: they keep cholesterol levels healthy, too.
