Spicy Veggie Blend

This delicious blend of vegetables is a quick and simple creation that can be easily thrown together by anybody looking to cook — novice or professional. Made from a combination of vegetables (with a tangy twist!), this is one tasty side dish (or main course when served over quinoa or brown rice). Between the nutrients from the veggies, protein from the black beans, and tang from the hot sauce, this dish is a perfect choice for an easy (and cheap!) weeknight dinner.
