An Extra Meal for this Week!

This was a dinner one night recently.  Baked salmon, steamed broccoli, butternut squash and black beans, and half an avocado. Lots of color ... lots of nutrients. 

Step 1

First I baked the butternut squash which takes about 45 minutes.  You know the butternut squash is finished when you stick a knife through any part of the squash easily.  I cooked the squash at 400.  While the squash is cooking rinse a can of black beans through a colander.  Warm up the black beans in a pan with about a cm of water.  This literally takes a couple of minutes.  Season the squash and black beans with a sprinkle of curry, cumin, sea salt, black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil  

Step 2

The salmon was baked simply with sea salt and black pepper at 350 until firm - about 15-20 minutes.  Put the salmon in the over after the butternut squash has been cooking about 20-25 minutes.  

Step 3

When Step 1 and Step 2 are about 10 minutes from being done steam your broccoli for 5-7 minutes or until fork tender.  I seasoned the broccoli with sea salt and olive oil.

Step 4

While the broccoli is steaming cut the avocado.  Season with a squirt of lemon and sea salt.
