If only it was as easy to banish hunger by rubbing the belly as to masturbate.

Sauteed Vegetables
salymander wrote in eat_tasty
One of the fastest, safest, and easiest meals is sauteed vegetables. Today I made mini penne pasta with sauteed carrots & mushrooms with a sprinkling of pine nuts on top. It's good, with the interplay between the sweet carrots and savory mushrooms, and it's quite healthy.

2 Carrots
3 Large mushrooms
Pine nuts
Penne pasta
Butter/olive oil/pam

Peel and chop carrots, slice mushrooms. Shape to your own preference, I'm not a snob when it comes to chopping. Turn your frying pan or wok to medium high, but closer to medium than high. I usually fry with a small amount of butter, but use you what you like. Pam doesn't change the flavor noticeably and I use it often when I'm eating my veggies plain and not with pasta. But buttery pasta will be much better than dry, fyi.

Cover carrots with a lid for a 3-4 minutes. Then remove lid, add a bit more butter and add mushrooms. Turn up the heat so that the mushrooms brown. When the mushrooms are done, add to pasta and sprinkle on pine nuts or even cashews. Both are IC Friendly.

The nice thing about this meal is that other veggies can easily be swapped in: zucchini, summer squash, or cabbage. Also, if you only sautee the mushrooms you can steam fresh broccoli (or warm up some frozen) and eat that as well. It's good to have base foods that you can change around depending on what's in your fridge. Especially when you need meals that only take 15-20 min and have no chance of making you sick. Even during a flare, this will be a safe meal.

Enjoy :)
