Most weekdays hold a lot of routine, but the bright spots of people or activities that make one day stand out from another pin a day to the calendar in our memories. Our meals can be routine, too, with boredom making it hard to maintain a healthy diet – whatever a “healthy diet” means for each of us.
Bright spots in our cooking are often the sauces we put on our food. Maybe simple like a soy sauce or hot pepper sauce, maybe a little more complex, like butter with garlic. To make a chicken breast fillet or beef loin steak really stand out from the routine, try a little Sauteed Green Onion Sauce.
Sautéed Green Onion Sauce
¼ cup green onion, chopped
¼ cup celery, chopped
2 tbsp. single-leaf parsley, chopped
¼ cup Roma tomato, peeled and chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. butter or margarine
½ cup condensed gluten-free bouillon or broth
Sautee the vegetables in the oil and margarine until crisp-tender. Stir in the bouillon or broth and simmer for a minute or two. Season to taste with salt and pepper, if desired. Serve.
