    Ingredients and Preparation

    Ingredients Measures
    Onions, cut into ½ inch wedges 1 cup
    Sweet potato 1
    Carrots 2
    Banana or Hubbard squash 1 pound
    Parsnips 1 cup
    Garlic cloves 2
    Red bell pepper 1
    Low sodium, low-fat vegetable broth 2 cups
    Puréed tomato 1 cup
    Lime juice 2 tablespoons
    Cayenne ¼ teaspoon
    Frozen peas 1 (10 ounce) package
    Salt ¼ teaspoon
    Black pepper 1/8 teaspoon
    Cilantro sprigs, rinsed, or thinly sliced green onions 1 bunch
    1. Peel onions and cut into ½ inch thick wedges.
    2. Peel the sweet potato, carrots, squash, and parsnips; cut into ¾ inch pieces.
    3. Peel and mince or press garlic.
    4. Rinse bell pepper; stem, seed, and cut into ½ inch strips.
    5. Cook onions, sweet potato, carrots, squash, parsnips, garlic, and 1 cup of broth in a covered pan for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
