Sauteed spinach & mushrooms

This nutritious little recipe can be used as either a side dish with your meat or a plant-based main with a respectable amount of protein as well as a ton of vitamins and minerals.    

The mushrooms provide half the calories in the recipe along with massive amounts of vitamin B5, choline, copper, manganese, selenium and zinc. Spinach provides folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus and potassium and a hefty dose of vitamins A, B2, B6 and K.

The nutritional yeast provides a number of nutrients that are harder to get on a plant-based diet such as vitamins B1, B3 and B12.
