Is quick and easy what you have time to cook, although healthy is what you need? Asparagus and slivered almonds in a wok or skillet will do all that and also taste great. Season it with soy sauce and parsley, or use red wine vinegar and garlic.
Either way, it’s delicious, it’s good for you and it’s quick and easy. It’s also naturally gluten-free. This tastes good enough to serve with a holiday dinner, but it’s easy enough to fix for a quick meal by yourself.
