Each vegetable on its own is a powerhouse, and when combined you are giving your body the full spectrum of plant based nutrients.

Kale, spinach and cabbage provide the raw enzymes that your body needs for nourishment, absorbtion and digestion, and the cooked mushrooms provide a wonderful, smoky flavor and texture.

We love to add avocado to pretty much anything as it provides healthy fats, and a creamy like consistency. You might be suprised to see blueberries added to the list of ingredients, but trust us they work well with the dish, they provide a touch of sweetness and added antioxidant support!
