I love combining gut friendly vegetables and fruit and creating a delicious, warm and hearty salad during the colder months.
Enjoy this delicious salad and support your digestive system with this power house salad!
1/2 lb Brussel Sprouts
1 1/2 cup shredded purple cabbage
1/2 of a butternut squash, cubed
1 pear, cubed
1/2 cup of pomegranate seeds
1 chicken breast (if you want to make this vegetarian you can omit the meat)
1/4 tsp Turmeric
1/4 tsp rosemary
1/4 cup walnuts (roughly chopped)
4 tbsp olive oil
Generous pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 350 F
Quarter the brussel sprout
Peel and cube the butternut squash
Place both in a bowl and coat with some olive oil and salt
Once the oven is heated, place in the oven, for 25 minutes. Stir occasionally.
When the brussel sprouts are slightly wilted and the squash is easily pierced with a fork, remove from the oven
Season the chicken breast with turmeric, rosemary and salt and fry in a pan for 4 minutes on both sides, or until the chicken breast has reached an internal temperature of 165
Cube the pear, discarding the pit and stem
Deseed the pomegranate and remove white skin if its stuck to the seeds.
Toss all ingredients in a bowl with the olive oil
Add chopped walnuts on top
