Spinach is a magnesium-rich food, which supplies 156 milligrams in just one cup! Magnesium helps to eliminate excess fluid from your cells, which helps you feel less bloated. My favourite spinach fix.
‘Silver beet and Chick Peas with Tahini Sauce’
1 onion, sliced…
1 tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
½ bunch silver beet, washed and roughly chopped
1 400g BPA-free tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup tahini, hulled
½ lemon, juiced
1/2 tsp cumin, ground
1 garlic clove, finely grated or chopped
1 pinch sea salt
Heat your pan then add the oil and onion and sauté until soft, about one min. Now add the garlic and continue cooking for another min. Next add the silver beet and stir through the onions. Cover and let cook for about 1-2 mins or until silver beet is softened. Now add the chickpeas and stir to combine.
In a small bowl mix the tahini, lemon, cumin, garlic and salt. If the sauce is too thick just add some water and stir until it is smooth and creamy.
