Serves 2

  • 200g spring greens
  • 100g rainbow chard
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 200g diced butternut squash
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp caraway seeds
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp yoghurt of your choice (optional)
  • Sea salt and pepper

Prepare the chard and spring greens by removing any tough stalks, roughly chop and wash thoroughly.

Heat a pan with 1 tbsp coconut oil and fry the onion and garlic for couple of minutes. Add the chilli and caraway seeds to the pan for a minute and then add the carrot and butternut squash. Add a couple of tbsp water to prevent the pan from catching, place a lid on and cook for 15 minutes until tender.

Add the spring greens and chard and saute for a further couple of minutes. Season well with sea salt and pepper.

Remove from the heat, divide into two bowls, drizzle with a little olive oil, top with a good dollop of yoghurt and some parsley. Serve.

Great prepared the night before for your lunch box the next day!
