By making just one small change a month will help you maintain a healthier life style in the longer term. So why not start today and introduce a Meat Free Monday into your week?!

Ribolitta is a great Vegetarian option full of antioxidants, fibre and bean-y goodness! It can easily be prepared at the weekend and stored in the freezer for when you need a speedy Monday night supper. It’s a great cold zapper and post workout fuel as well- so enjoy!

 

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 2 garlic cloves, diced
  • 1 potatoe, peeled and cubed
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 savoy cabbage, cut into ribbons
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 1 courgette, diced
  • 1 can of cannellini beans
  • 2 sticks of celery, finely sliced
  • 1 tsp of tomato paste
  • Handful of fresh herbs- basil and parsley work well.

The Method

1.    This one is easy peasy! Fry all of the ingredients except the stock in 2 spoons of olive or coconut oil for 10 minutes of a low heat. The smell should be amazing!

2.    Add the stock, bring to the boil and then simmer for 45 minutes.

3.    Add a sprinkling of fresh herbs and you are ready to enjoy!

Happy Eating!
