Here are our favourite 5 prebiotic superfoods for better gut health; our “gut” or microbiome is a term that refers to the collection of bacteria, yeast, fungi and archaea that exist in our large intestines. We have approx 100 trillion of these microorganisms and yet we only have approx 10 trillion human cells. In a weird way we are more bacteria than we are human, sounds kind of strange doesn’t it! 70% of our immune system and much of our human biology is controlled in our microbiome. One of the best things we can do for gut health is to eat prebiotic foods, like these Prebiotic superfoods for better gut health. A Prebiotic is food to nourish the bacteria that keep us healthy and strong. Foods that are high in fibre are great prebiotics. According to the American Gut project, the single biggest thing you can do to improve your gut health is to eat plant based foods and the second thing is to eat a diversity of plant based foods. The magic number in terms of diversity is to eat more than 30 different plant based foods each week. Latest research says that only 1 person in 250 actually reaches the recommended 30 different plant based foods per week.

made a great dinner for all our family – thanks
When do you add the pre-cooked brown rice?
I have just made this for tea with plenty of leftovers for lunch. It’s so good I honestly think I could eat this everyday. Very easy to make, I’m rubbish in the kitchen! I added kidney beans as didn’t have an cannellini but I think you could use any beans. This really is soo good, give it a try.
Gorgeous! And super easy to make. Will definitely be making again
Was initially going to make this knowing the 5 ingredients are gut puka. However the recipe was spot on lads and we couldn’t get it down us fast enough. Added the tamari as suggested & some extra cumin & chilli paste!!.
Anyone thinking about doing this…stop thinking and do!! Nice one lads 🙂
This was so gorgeous and full of flavour. One thing though. On your recipe it says 1 packet of pre cooked brown rice, but it doesn’t say when to add it in. I’m an experienced cook so I would know or guess when to be able to add it, but for someone that is not experienced or nervous of cooking this could throw them off, and if they leave it out, they won’t get the benefit of the whole dish. Maybe you can change it.
My partner and I like this meal so much that I’ve added it to my regular roster! The only changes I’ve made are to reduce the amount of lemon slightly (otherwise it tastes a bit like a lemon dessert with the sweetness of the potatoes!), add a tablespoon and a bit of soy sauce, and swap the coconut milk for light coconut milk. With wholegrain rice, this easily makes 8 portions for me and my partner! It’s easy to reheat in the week for a quick and nutritious meal. I’ve personally found that it takes longer than the seven minutes mentioned of steaming the leeks and potatoes for the potatoes to soften enough – for me, it’s closer to 15-20 minutes but YMMV.
I Made it a little bit more spicy I loved the recepi thank you 🙏
Soooo tasty! Made this for my daughter who is vegetarian but can see it being a regular meal for us as a family.
Love your energy and ethos!
