The sauté recipe comes from Dr. Stephen T. Sinatra'sReverse Heart Disease Now, which is reviewed in this issue of “Vital Choices.”
Steve Sinatra is one of our favorite people… warm, generous, and unpretentious. His tasty recipe is appropriately heart-healthy and casual.
An accompanying salad makes a great combination.
