Skillet Spinach Corn With Edamame Cilantro & Bacon Bits #SundaySupper

 

My Sunday Supper team is doing another round of favorite recipes from “100 recipes every mom should have‘  by  Katie Workman ! I had the book for the past month and have been using it a lot. So many lovely recipes that you can customize to suit your need. When I flipped through the book the corn spinach with scallions and bacon caught my eye. Just the colors made me want to literally eat the dish off the book ! I love eye appeal in a dish and with my “fussy with veggies ” family eye appeal is important. I made some changes to the dish. I used all the vegetables that Katie used and added some edamame to it to give it some  protein. I also added some cilantro and orange cherry tomatoes from my garden. They fit right in.  I also added some cumin and it complemented the pepper to give a subtle peppery spicy taste.  Well the dish was a hit and was all gone.  I’m quite sure this is going to be frequent dish in my home ! You can skip the bacon if you want a veggie/ vegan dish. If you do eat bacon, add it ! It adds so much “oomph” to the meal.

Nutrition Nuts and bolts.

Bursting with fiber, vitamins and minerals this dish has protein  courtesy of the edamame. A nice dish to incorporate for meatless meals. Not counting the bacon of course.

Veggie option without the bacon !

 

Stuff into a pepper for an amazing appetizer !!!

  15. ll see much better results with this diet plan than you would with others that use some generic
    formula to calculate your nutrient needs. To find out if it is actually true and to understand
    better if Kyle Leon’s system is generally for you or not,
    let’s look into a few of the benefits and drawbacks
    of the product. No make a difference what
    sort of fat coaching regimen you.
