Here's a recipe I tried a couple of nights ago for dinner:

Sauteed Asparagus, Peppers and Onions

Ingredients:
asparagus
yellow peppers
sweet onions
coconut oil or balsamic vinaigrette 

Directions:

1. Heat about 1 tbs of coconut oil in a frying pan on medium-high. 

2. Stir in yellow peppers and onions and cook for about 3-5 minutes or until crisp and tender. 

3. Add asparagus; cover. Simmer on medium-low heat for about 5-7 minutes or until asparagus is crisp and tender. 

4. Enjoy!

Note: You could make this recipe with either coconut oil or balsamic vinaigrette. It just depends what you're in the mood for. 

Cut up yellow peppers, asparagus and sweet onions.


First, add the peppers and the sweet onions in the pan with the coconut oil. 


Then, add the asparagus to the mix.


What are your favorite Spring veggies?
