Squash with Shiitake Mushrooms is a simple weeknight meal for healthy eating. Also a good side dish.

Shiitake mushrooms have been long used in Asia for strengthening the immune system and are low in calories and a good source of fiber. They're high in A, B2, B12 and C vitamins. Chinese doctors believe they stimulate the Qi. There are different types of shiitake, dried and fresh. The dried ones need to be soaked in warm water. Wash the cap carefully.

Squash is high in fiber and vitamin A, which helps improve your vision. B vitamins prevent depression.
