Shallots

Shallots have a strong flavor, similar to onions and garlic. They’re a great source of vitamin C, iron, and manganese, as well as vitamin B6, which is very important for nervous and immune system function.

Garlic

Garlic is known for its strong aroma and high phytochemical content which provides potential cholesterol-lowering and cancer-fighting properties. Eating garlic regularly can even reduce blood pressure and the risk of stomach and colorectal cancers.

Tomatoes

Tomatoes are a sweet and delicious addition to this meal, as well as a great source of fiber, potassium and vitamins A, C and K. These nutrients support healthy skin, strong bones, good vision, healthy blood circulation, and even kidney stone prevention. Tomatoes also have lycopene, which is the pigment that gives tomatoes their red color. It has been linked to the prevention of heart disease and certain types of cancer, as well as protection against sunburns.

Peppers

Bell peppers come in a range of colors like red, orange, yellow, and green and are a great way to turn your plate into a rainbow. Just one pepper delivers a day’s worth of vitamins A and C, which support healthy skin and immune function. For this recipe, try out some new colors to dress up your dish!

Mushrooms

Even though mushrooms often come in white or brown, they’re still packed with as many antioxidants as other, more colorful fruits and vegetables. Mushrooms are great sources of fiber and protein, as well as many important nutrients, including B vitamins, selenium, potassium, copper, and vitamin D. Fun fact: mushrooms act as little sponges in sunlight, which means they soak up vitamin D from the sun and deliver them straight to your system!

Spinach

Spinach is one of the most popular dark leafy greens, which actually indicates it’s high levels of chlorophyll and health promoting antioxidants. It’s also high in iron, which is very important for the function of red blood cells and circulation. Furthermore, spinach provides vitamins A, B2, C and K, which are important for maintaining bone health and immune function.

Optional Protein

Feel free to add in some slices of grilled chicken or baked fish to boost the protein content of this meal. Protein is crucial for a maintaining and building lean muscle mass, focus, energy, and a fast metabolism.
