Spring greens, peppers and tomato
Time: 1 hr 5 mins
This would make a great healthy supper recipe on its own with a slice of homemade bread, but it is equally good served with simple pasta or pizza dishes. A piece of fish on the side would also be good, but however you serve it, it is as wholesome and healthy as it is delicious… enjoy! Use spring greens in the place of the kale in this recipe.
