It’s easy to get into a rut with side dishes. Quick steamed veggies, baked potatoes, salad, brown rice, repeat. Since that can quickly get boring, I am always looking for new quick and easy side dishes that are both healthy and a little more exciting than my normal choices. I also love a side dish that can be easily re-purposed into another meal later in the week. This simple, delicious side dish of zucchini, red onion, and poblano peppers fits the bill perfectly. It’s a great side to liven up any meal and tastes incredible in an omelet, egg mug, quesadilla, or stuffed into a sweet potato with a little cheese for a quick breakfast or lunch.

This recipe is delicious! And if you are on the Paleo diet, just substitute coconut oil.
