Helpful hints

  • Variations: 1/2 cup cut asparagus, peas, corn, green or red pepper may be substituted for squash or green beans. Turmeric may be used instead of paprika.
  • This is a higher potassium recipe. If you are on a low potassium diet be sure to count as 2 vegetable servings. You may need to reduce fruit or vegetable intake at another meal to stay within your daily potassium goal.
