With temperatures creeping up, and summer incoming the desire for dishes a little lighter. Meet the dish the matches that desire.

Whilst it may be low in calories, the nutrients it packs in are not. The garlic addition hosts a number of antioxidants that support the body’s protective mechanisms against oxidative damage. On top of this, the mix of leafy greens pack in a good dose of vitamins K, which plays a role in maintaining normal bones, as well as A and C, which help the immune system to function normally.
