Herbed Spinach and Mushroom Mix

11 February 2015

I love combining an assortment of fresh herbs to really bring the flavour out of vegetables. Mushrooms are particularly responsive to this combination of dill, parsley and coriander. This meal serves as great way to get a large dose of good quality alkalising greens into your system, to balance your internal PH and cleanse the gut.
