against certain types of cancers, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. So make sure you eat
your greens!
However, your greens wont seem so dull once you try these recipes. Flavourful
ingredients, delicious dressings, and the perfect ratio of lettuce to toppings will bring
your salads from mundane to mouth-watering.

mango chutney
Ingredients

Method

2 tbsp. of fat of choice

In a medium-large pot, heat fat over medium heat until hot.

(coconut oil, olive oil)


1/2 sweet or red onion,

Add onions and garlic. Sprinkle with just a dash of salt. Saut for about 5

peeled and finely chopped

minutes, or until the onions are softening, stirring as needed to prevent

1 medium clove garlic,

burning.

peeled and finely minced


Pinch pink Himalayan salt

Meanwhile, place the flat side of a large knife on each cardamom pod

1/8 tsp. red chilli flakes

and give it a sharp rap with your fist to split it open. Remove all of the

1/4 tsp. powdered ginger, or fresh

seeds, but keep them for later use.

1/4-1/2 cup sweetener of choice


1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
(or mild vinegar of choice)
1 cup water
2 cups of fresh or frozen mango cubes
(peeled)
8 whole green cardamom pods

Add the rest of the ingredients (including the cardamom seeds) to the
onion and garlic. Bring to a simmer, and keep at a low simmer for 30
minutes.
If the chutney ever gets too thick, simply add a bit more water.
Pure the chutney using an immersion blender, food processor, or
blender. Cool.
NOTES: You can substitute powdered cardamom for the pods, just use
a small amount so that is complements rather then overwhelms. You
could also use fresh ginger instead of powdered, but somehow the dried
and powdered works really well in this chutney. Increase the chilli flakes
for more spice, if desired.
Mango chutney could also be great with curry powder or garam masala
added to it. The chutney will last at least several weeks refrigerated.

shake together.

Black pepper, to taste


Salad
2 large handfuls of salad leaves
2 large handfuls of radicchio, sliced
1 pomegranate, seeds removed
2 small unpeeled apples, cored and
sliced or chopped
1 cup fresh pineapple, diced
4 tbsp. walnuts, chopped and toasted,
optional

For the salad leaves choose from a selection of rocket, small baby chard,
kale, beetroot or spinach, or mustard greens, larger leaves sliced, small
leaves kept whole.
Place the leaves with the remaining salad ingredients in a large
bowl, pour over the dressing and toss everything together, then serve
immediately.
NOTES: To toast walnuts, place them in a frying pan on a high heat and
cook, tossing frequently for about 1 minute or until they are browned.
They toast very quickly so take care not to burn them. To remove the
seeds from a pomegranate, simply cut into quarters and bend the skins
to push out the seeds. Make sure you discard all of the white inner
membrane, as it is quite bitter. The dressing will sit happily for a few
days in the fridge.

Heat oil in a wok on medium-high heat. Add in garlic and onion, and
stir-fry over medium heat until fragrant, about half a minute. Add in
Sambal belacan and stevia, and stir-fry for another minute.

NOTES: Cooking with dried shrimp or fresh prawns are another common
way of enjoying Sambal kangkong. If you like adding dried shrimp, you
can pound/ blend dried shrimp finely together with Sambal belacan
and follow the steps above to cook. For fresh prawns, just add in the
prawns after Step 1 and cook for a couple of minutes until the prawns
turn opaque (90% done) before you add in the kangkong. Another tip
is to bath the kangkong in ice water before cooking. This will keep the
kangkong nicely crisp.
