One favourite hearty and healthy recipe:

Easy, throw it all together, chicken and vegetables



Serves 6

2 Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, roughly sliced
2 garlic cloves, cut or pressed
2 carrots, thickly sliced
1 stick celery, thickly sliced
1 zucchini, thickly sliced
1/2 eggplant, roughly sliced
1/2-1kg skinless, free range chicken thighs
1/2 red capsicum, roughly diced
1/2 green capsicum, roughly diced
6 mushrooms, halved
3 Tbsp tomato paste
1 Tbsp dried oregano
2 bay leaves
12 olives
1 bottle tomato passata

Optional:1/2 cup wine with the passata and 1 glass for the cook

(Omit or exchange veggies as you wish)

For low FODMAP:  Use garlic infused oil, leave out onion and celery, use green beans instead and perhaps more carrot, zucchini.

Put oven on to heat to 180 C. Heat a large casserole dish with oil.  Add garlic, onion, carrot, celery, stir occasionally for 5 minutes.  Add eggplant and stir occasionally for 3 minutes.  Add chicken and push and turn around to brown both sides for 5 minutes.  Add all the other ingredients and cover with foil.  Place in oven for 1/2 hour, then remove foil and continue to cook uncovered for another 1/2 hour.  Serve with greens and/or roast potato, quinoa or brown rice. Add some parsley to serve if you’ve got some and chilli if you like it hot xx
