This recipe is inspired by Dr. Joel Fuhrman, who recommends eating Greens, Beans, Onions, Mushrooms, Berries, and Seeds every day (G-BOMBS). The saute includes many of those. I love to make it for dinner and have leftovers the next day for lunch. I serve it atop this tofu/potato scramble here, but you can serve it over quinoa, brown rice, baked potato or sweet potato, or polenta as well. Top with salsa or hot sauce. Enjoy!
