Butternut and sweet potato sautePosted: October 22, 2011
I love this recipe, it’s colorful, tasty and easy to make. The ingredients pack a powerful punch in the nutrition department. Butternut is filling, yet surprisingly low in calories ( just 45 cal per 100 g.) It contains no saturated fats or cholesterol, and is a rich source of dietary fiber. Sweet potatoes are rich in antioxidants and have a high vitamin A (immune system) content. They make the perfect pair! Sweet and simple.
1 medium-sized butternut
2-3 medium-sized sweet potatoes
1 red onion
2 cloves fresh garlic
1 teaspoon olive oil.
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon.
1. Cut and peel the butternut. Pre-boil the butternut and sweet potato.
2. In a pan or wok, saute the red onion and garlic in some olive oil for about 2 minutes.
3. Add the butternut and sweet potato to the onion and garlic. Lastly add a dash of cinnamon.
