Favorite Ingredients Friday (Healthy Eating Edition)


Good Friday to you all! It's time for a special Favorite Ingredients Friday Healthy Eating edition!

I got some wonderful ideas from the Healthy Edition that I hosted last year but I'm hoping for me this year too!
So please, share your light and healthy recipes to help me and my family eat healthier! :)

The recipe I'm sharing I found on Mayoclinic.com! It makes a wonderful side dish for a healthy meal.

Steamed Summer Squash with warm leek vinaigrette


Ingredients

2 yellow crookneck squash, about 1/2 pound total weight
2 zucchini, about 1/2 pound total weight


For the vinaigrette:
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 leek, including tender green top, finely chopped
1 tablespoon vegetable stock or broth
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Preparation

Trim the stems from the yellow squash and zucchini. Halve lengthwise and then cut the halves crosswise on the diagonal into slices 1/2-inch thick. Set aside.

To make the vinaigrette, in a saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the leek and saute until soft, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the vegetable stock, vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Cover and keep warm.

Meanwhile, in a large pot fitted with a steamer basket, bring 1 inch of water to a boil. Add the yellow squash and zucchini, cover, and steam until tender, about 10 minutes.

Transfer the squash to a warmed serving dish. Add the vinaigrette and toss gently to mix. Serve immediately.

I know this is random, but I just ran across your post about Snugglebug's scratch under his eye on August 29, 2006. My son did exactly the same thing with a wooden block about 4 weeks ago and he still has a red mark there! Would you mind telling whether or not your little one ended up with a scar? It would take a load off my mind to know what to expect! I feel so guilty about it! Thanks :)
