Bubble + Squeak
I remember mum cooking bubble + squeak for all of us when we were kids. It was basically all the leftover veggies from the night before cooked up in a hot cast iron pan until lovely and golden with lots of crispy bits that tasted amazing. Well I love to follow a little family tradition and often make bubble + squeak at home when I want some warm and healthy comfort food. I love to use a combination of thin sliced cauliflower, fennel and leek; you can also add chunks of potato and sauté until crispy and golden brown. This is pure comfort food that can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
What’s great about it:
Fennel is the perfect vegetable for digestive support and can help with gastrointestinal disturbances such as bloating. Cauliflower is rich in sulphur that works as an anti-inflammatory that can support digestion and boost your immune system. Leeks are part of the veggie family called allium vegetables, the same as garlic and onions. They contain the flavonoid kaempferol that can help protect the body from oxidative stress. The combination of all these veggies also act like pre-biotic in the digestive system that help to stimulate the favourable growth and activity of the good probiotic bacteria.
