Here is a great Whole Foods/Plant Based recipe that is quick, simple, and full of lots of great nutrition.
The first time I made this dish I was amazed at how easy and simple it was, and how wonderful it could taste… you will love it.
2 – Packages of Whole Grain None GMO Rice Pasta… or any other Whole Grain Pasta
2 – Large Tomatoes – Chopped
1 – 14oz Package of Vegan Italian Style Sausage Sliced – you can find these at your local health food store.
6 – Large Collard Greens – Chopped
1/2 – Cup of Capers
1 – Large Onion Chopped
6 – Green Onion Tops Chopped
1 – Tablespoon of Any Kind of Seasoning that you like – I used Old Bay Seasoning Here.
Optional – 1 – Teaspoon of Red Pepper Flakes… if you like it hot
Spray Oil – Just Enough to Coat the Bottom of the Saute Pan.
First boil your pasta according to directions in water or you could use veggie stock for more flavor, strain and set aside.
Next take spray oil and coat the bottom of your saute pan and saute onions until transparent… then add collard greens saute until wilted.
Then in a large bowel take all the remaining ingredients and combine them tossing everything together.
And you are ready to serve.
Enjoy this great recipe and have great health.
Collard Greens are full of great chlorophyll and lots of wonderful sulfur containing compounds that help to prevent cancer… and at the same time provides fiber for probiotic colon health. And Collard Greens contains Omega 3 oils that help prevent cardiovascular health, prevent strokes, and cancer… plus Collard Greens alkalize the body.
Brown Rice compared to White Rice has a lot of health benefits. Brown Rice is full of Thiamine, Niacin, Pyridoxine, Vitamin K, Calcium, Iron, Phosphorus, and Potassium. Brown Rice is rich in fiber, controls blood sugar and cholesterol, and works wonders for ulcers and diarrhea. Plus if you are debilitated it’s very easy to digest and contains needed nutrients for your bones, muscles, nails, hair, and teeth. Soak your Brown Rice in water for 30 minutes prior to cooking and it will cook faster.
Capers are very low in calories to the point that they could be thought of as a good weight loss food. And they also have lots of antioxidants, such as quercetin and rutin which are polyphenols like that found in green tea. Most people don’t know that Capers have lots of quercetin – more than most foods and only green tea has more. And they lower cholesterol, and help prevent cardiovascular disease, cancer, and lower cholesterol. And they have lots of vitamins too! But they are a little salty so cut back on the salt when using capers.
Tomatoes also contain lots of lycopene that’s a powerful antioxidant that’s well known to prevent Breast, Prostate, and Stomach Cancer and boost your immune system. Studies show that eating tomatoes lowers your risk of prostate cancer by more than 30%. And another study shows that eating tomatoes lowered your chances of coming down with pancreatic cancer by over 40%. And low levels of lycopene have been found in people who come down with colon cancer and growths… so it’s very important to eat your tomatoes.
