Lunch in under 10!

IMG_3812 A vegetable medley ~

1 zucchini washed, trimmed and sliced thin

A handful of green beans, washed, trimmed, and chopped in 1/4ths

A couple of leaves of kale (any kind is fine), washed and hard stems trimmed

A few leaves of Swiss chard, washed (make sure you get the grit out of the grooves of the red stem :-)); keep the stem in this case

Add all vegetables to a pot, add about 1 cup water; steam on medium heat for 6-8 minutes.  Remove from heat; add salt and black pepper to taste.  Puree as you as you desire! Enjoy!
