Vegan Sauteed Mushrooms and Green Onions 1

I started feeling like Spring may be actually coming this weekend.  We moved the clocks forward and I am so excited for the extra daylight!! And we even had a couple of sunny days.

I was so convinced that it was almost spring time, that I dragged my family over to a park with their adorable (but so well behaved they are kind of weird) puppies.  In my head it was a big green field and the puppies were going to be able to run free.  But when we pulled into the park I remembered that there is still lots of snow everywhere.  Does it being Spring in my brain still count as it being spring?  If so we are there guys.

So in the name of smooth transitions (which I am a pro at in a parallel universe somewhere, I am sure) lets use some spring onions?  Yes, that was smooth.  ::Pats self on back::

I made this dish for the first time a couple of weeks ago, in an attempt to use the last of the produce I had in the fridge.  It was one of those dinners where I made a few random things (like this and this) and threw it all on plate and called it dinner.  I actually thought this part of the dinner was going to be kind of boring, since it was nothing too fancy.  But I loved it so much I have been making it regularly ever since.  Sometimes simple is just the way to go.

I made it as a side, but here are a few ways to make this a dinner:

  • Toss with some pasta and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar
  • Serve over tempeh
  • Stir into some rice with a little squeeze of lemon

Health highlight of Green Onions (scallions):  Scallions are excellent sources of flavonoids, as well as vitamins such as vitamin K (which helps your blood clot), and minerals like as potassium and iron.  Green onions have been shown to help reduce your risk for cancer.  Green onions also help support the body’s natural detoxification process, and helps support your immune system.
