My New Favorite Lunch

I have been craving veggies lately, which is great because usually it's chocolate and jelly belly's! In the winter I have a weird aversion to lettuce. I used to blame it on pregnancy, but this year there is no baby to blame. So here is my take on a winter salad.

1 small bunch of broccoli cut into bite sized pieces.
1 carrot, scraped and sliced
1 large handful of snap peas
1/2 cup garbanzo beans
1 Tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Heat olive oil in pan. Add veggies and beans. Saute for 7-8 minutes or until heated through. Season with salt and pepper. Enjoy! Toasted pine nuts or pecans make a great addition to this dish also!

This sounds great. I love new lunch ideas. It can get hard to come up with new fun things as a stay-at-home mom. Thanks for passing this along.
