Sauteed, and Sliced Zucchini, Onion, and Mushroom

Are there any foods you like the smell of, but not the taste? This was me, and mushrooms. My Mom loved them, and sauteed them often, but as much as I liked the smell, I never wanted to eat them. Then came this dish.

This side dish was made for me by a friend, and I’ve loved mushrooms (and onions) ever since. These vegetables are a great combo, and all you have to do is sprinkle on some salt and pepper. So good.

Sauteed, and Sliced Zucchini, Onion, and Mushroom

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 cups sliced, fresh zucchini
  • 2 cups sliced, fresh onion
  • 2 cups sliced, fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

In a large, shallow skillet pan (or wok) add the coconut oil to the pan on medium heat. Add your zucchini slices to the pan, and cook for four minutes or until they have begun to brown. Add the onion slices, and cook for one minute. Last, add the mushrooms, and cook an additional minute. Season with salt and pepper and it’s ready!

Homemade Meat and Vegetable Chinese (Paleo)

You’ll swear you’re eating takeout. This recipe was named by a close friend because it is so good, you can’t stop eating it! Vegetables and ground beef combine and take on the flavors and textures of your favorite Chinese dish, but homemade and healthy.

“Hamburger Crack”

  • Half a large head of purple cabbage, sliced into strips
  • One red onion, sliced into strips
  • 12 oz green beans, cut off ends and cut into bite sized pieces
  • 8oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos (soy sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon refined coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

In a wok or large skillet pan, add one tablespoon of coconut oil on medium heat with the onions and green beans and let that cook for 5-10 minutes. Now make a circle sized space in the middle of the pan and put the beef in and cook until browned.

Then layer the minced garlic, sliced mushrooms and sliced cabbage on top of the meat and vegetables, cover the wok and let it cook for about 15-20 minutes. Add the aminos, seasame oil and pepper and cook additional 5-10 minutes. Enjoy!
