Alkaline Diet Recipe #104: Alkalising Chilli Spring Greens

by Ross Bridgeford

Chilli Spring GreensThis 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.
