Italian Beans ‘n’ Peppers

This meal is super hearty and a wonderfully different take on green beans, which are high in dietary fiber, very low in calories and a good source of plant derived micronutrients. As a vegan main dish, it really works. I served it over brown rice penne pasta for quite a substantial dinner.

You can use whatever kind of tomato sauce you have on hand. I prefer to make my own as I go. I think jarred tomato sauce is ridiculously expensive, not to mention the high sodium content and added oils in most of them. It’s pretty easy to just get some crushed or strained tomatoes, add garlic, basil, a little paprika and create your own, which is what I did here.

Healthy Trails,
