This plate of food tasted amazing, like a vegetable curry and I just totally winged it so excuse the quantities please!

This dish is to keep Candida overgrowth at bay in a delicious way as well as being great for promoting weight loss.

Swede (Rutabaga) is known to help combat candida as are spices so feel free to add amounts to your taste. Bear in mind that too much swede will write of the weight loss factor in this recipe.

Main dish:

1″ thick small Swede
Small bunch of Purple Sprouting Broccoli (leaves removed)
A few leaves of Spring Greens or 1 small head (depending on the wildness of the crop)
5″ of Leek
2 sticks of Asparagus

Sauce:

1/2 a Cauliflower’s leaves
All the leaves from the Broccoli
A sprinkle of Turmeric

A sprinkle of Black Pepper
A sprinkle of Cumin
Approx. 1/2 Ounce Water *non-organic

Spring Greens – Riverford

Unruly and delicious! Spring Greens from Riverford are a huge spring hit, come to think of it so is every single food we are gifted in Spring. Nearly every week I have had these added to the order and they are the perfect hardy greens. These immature cabbages with wild style leaves certainly add character to any kitchen. Spring Greens are mostly like Kale as they do not have the hard head at the centre, I like to call them baby cabbages and they are a real source of nourishment if not over cooked. I just steam mine for around 5 minutes to loosen up all the goodies!

They do not have an overpowering ‘cabbagey’ taste which makes them perfect for adding to the boys mash for their dose of greenery!
Low in calories and bursting with nutrient goodness this vegetable is not one to be missed. Containing high levels of Vitamins A, C & K, and with fiber, iron and calcium all included too Spring Greens surely are a winner for the heart.

Check them out for yourself for only £1.75 per 350g from Riverford.co.uk.
