2 1/2 – Cups of Organic Sun Dried Tomatoes Chopped

1 – Large Organic Yellow Onion Chopped

1 – Cup of Organic Parsley Chopped

Take a large 17 inch cast iron fry pan or any other heavy pan and add the oil and sauté the onions and garlic. Then add the squash, potatoes, parsley, and sun dried tomatoes and keep sautéing until things start to brown. And before things start to stick add a cup of water around the outer edge of the pan and allow everything to start to bubble. Then add the rest of the ingredients and cook slightly longer and mix well and salt and pepper to taste.

Serve over brown rice, or whole grain pasta, or my favorite over some nice greens like wilted kale or turnip greens. And also serve with a nice green salad on the side for a whole spectrum meal that’s really great for the body.

Serves 12 people – or 2 big guys that just came back from camping and are really hungry.
