How many vegetables can you count in this nutritious anti-inflammatory meal?? The answer is: LOTS! And if you're brave you can add even more!!!
This is a pretty simple one-pot recipe that makes for a great meal-prep idea or for a big dinner. Don't be frightened by the ingredients list...as mentioned earlier, this recipe is loaded with veggies but is really quite basic :)
It is fairly customiseable too - you can add or remove whatever vegetables you like really. I love cooking with as many vegetables as I can, it is important to have variety in your diet to ensure you are meeting your nutritional needs.
You'll never find a recipe repeated each week in my household! Well... with the exception of this Anti-Inflammatory Shakshouka recipe... It is so delicious that whenever I make it my partner insists that we have it again every night for the whole week!
But anyway, I digress... Having a varied diet can help reduce the risk of malnutrition. While you may think you're eating healthy by eating your 5 serves of veggies and 2 serves of fruit a day - you may not be getting all the vitamins and minerals you require if they're the same fruits and veggies each day!
So, the bottom line here...
Load up with everything all the time! All the food, always. Add a bit of something wherever you can :D
This recipe can be made Low FODMAP, by omitting the garlic and onion (you know the drill ;) ) and ensuring you watch your serving sizes as a lot of these ingredients can be tolerated in small quantities. Consider adding potato and increasing the carrot, while reducing the amount of beans, peas, chickpeas, spinach and chickpeas, to ensure you don't breach tolerable levels!
By simply omitting the tomato, capsicum and chilli, this recipe can be made nightshade free.
With a little bit of tinkering...this meal can be enjoyed by all!
