Alkaline Diet Recipe #104: Alkalising Chilli Spring Greens

antioxidant
Article by ross

This is a fabulous and highly alkalising recipe using delicious spring greens and chilli as the main ingredients.

Spring greens are one of these vegetables which are often left out in the kitchen, as a lot of us do not really know what to do with them. This is a real shame as they are packed with nutrients, are highly alkalising and are very versatile vegetables to cook with. You can steam, fry or even mash them.

They are nutritious and particularly rich in folic acid, Vitamin C and dietary fibre, which makes them very healthy and alkalising.

Red chillis also contain high amounts of Vitamin C and carotene and are very high in iron, magnesium and potassium.

This dish has got a lovely crunchy texture and the chilli gives it that slight kick.

You can either eat this as a side dish or serve it together with brown basmati rice as a light main dish.

Juice of 1 fresh lemon
Himalayan Crystal Salt or celtic sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Optional: Brown basmati rice, cooked as per instructions

Instructions

Cook the spring greens in the stock or water in a large frying pan over medium heat, covered, for about 10 minutes.

In another frying pan, heat the oil over a medium heat and gently fry the onion, garlic and chilli for about 3-4 minutes.

Add these to the spring greens, then cover and steam for about 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper, add the lemon juice and serve.

Enjoy!

    Great recipe! I use to do something similar with kale and garlic but the kale is a bit hard on the digestive system. I will give this a shot this week. Thanks…
