Whether its coming up to that particular time of the month, or you’ve eaten to many carbs, chances are, you have experienced bloating!! Well here is a SUPER easy dish that you can whip up in minutes that is packed with nutrient rich greens that are easy on the digestive system and tastes great!!
Bloat-Busting Garlicky Greens (Vegan & Gluten Free)
(This recipes allows for two servings)
3 Handfuls of Kale
2 Handfuls of Spinach
1 Chopped Spring Onion
4 Sprigs of Basil (chopped)
2 Cloves of Garlic (Minced)
1 Celery Stalk (Chopped)
¼ Green Bell pepper (chopped)
2 tsp of Paprika
1 tsp of Salt (optional)
1 cup of frozen peas
2tsp Black Pepper
1tsp Coconut Oil
½ Cup of Water
1 Chopped Apple
-Heat the coconut oil on a low/medium heat in a pan
-Simply toss all the vegetables, seasoning and water in the pan and then close the lid and leave to steam for 5-10 mins
-Once the vegetables have softened, simply serve in a bowl and garnish with the chopped apples.
I love this dish because it is packed full of your green goodness and the sweetness of the chopped apple just gives it a lovely twist (and keeps your breath fresh in spite of the garlic!!) It really is a satisfying dish and you can add your own spin on it by changing up your choice of greens.
