Sesame and Cayenne Broad Beans with Asparagus and Spinach

Serves 2

About this recipe

An ingredient that will certainly deliver fibre for your gut microbes – broad beans provide additional substrate for the microbes allowing them to thrive and perform their important functions of inflammation control, digestion and short chain fatty acid synthesis that supports immune health

In addition to micronutrients like folate, manganese and iron, broad beans are an important source of magnesium that tends to lack in our diets (along with fibre!) and protein. Basically, we all need these types of foods on our plates and my recipes will show you how!
