08 Oct Fall Marinated Bitter Greens
by Nourish Coaches
The bitter flavor of greens can be intimidating and keep them off our plate. We suggest you don’t ignore them though. Adding a yummy dressing that blends the acidity of apple cider vinegar with the sweet of maple syrup, helps cut that bitter flavor = More bitter greens please!
Why we want to eat bitter greens in the fall:
Not only are bitter greens nutrient dense and full of antioxidants but they are also used as a prebiotic for vital gut microbiome health. Because bitter greens are packed with fiber, they also lend a hand to satiety, digestive ease and absorption of nutrients.
Choose a mix of fall bitter greens: 4-5 cups
- 1 shallot, minced
- 1/4 cup olive oil or avocado oil
- 3 Tablespoons toasted sesame oil
- 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 2 1/2 teaspoons maple syrup
- 2 teaspoons Dijon
- 1 teaspoon Tamari
Whisk together OR shake ingredients in a glass jar till mixed well.
Pour marinade over greens, toss and let marinate for 10 minutes before serving.
