Easy chickpeas & artichokes

Sauté shallots in a stable fat (duck fat, ghee, butter, coconut oil. Avocado oil is alright )

Add chopped cherry tomatoes (canned diced tomatoes would also work).

Add chopped artichokes (frozen)

Add Italian herbs (thyme, oregano, basil)

Add rinsed chick peas (from a can)

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with sautéed greens or green salad, rice (cooked, cooled and reheated) or potatoes.

What is gut friendly about this easy recipe?

Artichokes, shallots and chickpeas are full of prebiotic fiber which feeds our “protectors” (good bacteria in our microbiome) and chickpeas contain inositol which helps balance blood sugar.

Fresh herbs are anti- microbial, anti-inflammatory and help digest food.

Tomatoes are of course high in antioxidants like lycopene. Our good gut bugs love antioxidants, as do our mitochondria (powerhouses of all our cells)!
