Not only is this recipe chock-full of greens for your health, but the flavour really shines through, too. I use sun-dried tomatoes a lot when I cook because of their amazing flavour. Luckily, even after being dried in the sun, they still keep their nutritional value – they are just losing most of their water content. You don’t have to add a lot of these to your recipes to get that burst of flavour; just a few will do.
