Butternut and sweet potato saute

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.

Ingredients

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.

Recipe

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.
