Butternut Squash And Pasta In Black Bean Sauce
This is a meal that loaded with nutrition. It will help you get all the iron you need amongst other vitamins and minerals. While vitamin A is good for the immune system and seeing in dim light, Iron is good for making red blood cells. Red blood cells carry, among other things, oxygen around the body.
- Butternut squash
- Black beans
- Paprika x 1 tbsp
- Balsamic vinegar
- Nutritional yeast with B12
Soak the beans over night. Boil the beans following the directions on the packaging until nearly done then add all of the other ingredients. Cook on a low heat until the veg is ready. I like to boil the pasta while the beans are cooking and then add them a little after the veg is added. Very simple and nutritious.
Vitamins A, B and C. Notably, the paprika also gives a huge amount of vitamin A and so does the kale. In hind sight, it might be a good idea to swap the paprika for turmeric and have more beans with less butternut squash.
Minerals - calcium, potassium and Iron.
Must of the iron in this meal comes from the paprika, chickpeas and black beans.
The nutritional yeast will provided most of the B vitamins including B12.
