I love making one pot meals as they are fairly quick to make and give leftovers for a couple of days. This great meal can be made in about 1 hour and the leftovers taste great the next day too.
This meal is rich in:
- Healthy fats from coconut oil
- Protein, vitamins B3 and B6, selenium, zinc, and phosphorus from chicken wings
- Manganese and vitamin B6 from garlic, in addition to garlic’s anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antiviral roles
- Many minerals (manganese, copper, potassium, and phosphorus), vitamins (biotin, B1, C, B6, and folate), and fiber from onion
- Vitamins A, B6, C, K, fiber, biotin, and potassium from carrots
- Vitamin B12, C, K, folate, manganese, and fiber from green beans
- Vitamin A, B3, B6, C, E, K, biotin, folate, copper, potassium, manganese, phosphorus, and fiber from tomatoes
- Trace minerals from sea salt
- 4 tablespoons coconut oil
- 12 small chicken sausages, cut in bite-sized pieces (*see note)
- 6 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 onion, chopped small
- 2 big carrots, chopped small (approximately 2 cups)
- 500 g fresh or frozen green beans, cut in bite-sized pieces (**see note)
- 1 can (796 ml) diced tomatoes
- Sea salt, to taste
- Cook sausages on low heat in coconut oil for 15 minutes stirring occasionally.
- Add garlic and onion and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
- Add carrots, green beans, and diced tomatoes.
- Simmer over low heat until vegetables are tender. Add sea salt if necessary.
- This meal works great on its own, or served with polenta or garlic bread.
- It keeps well in the fridge for up to 3 days.
