High fibre recipes for plant based diet with sweet potato, beetroot and hummus for low inflammation.

Easy plant-based lunch recipe, high-fibre, high-protein, lean and delicious. Low-inflammation vegan lunch idea. Easy plant-based lunch recipe, high-fibre, high-protein, lean and delicious. Low-inflammation vegan lunch idea.

High in protein, high in fibre, low-inflammation!

This vegan, high-protein lunch or dinner recipe is packed with insoluble fibres, essential fats and is highly nutritious.

Using sweet potato instead of white potatoes increases our complex fibre intake which can be useful for boosting the health of our gut microbiome (the living world of microorganisms keeping us alive through sharing our fibrous foods with us).

Always use organic, whole foods in place of processed - see my homemade hummus recipe to reduce the processed food in this meal.
