  1. Lightly steam the asparagus tips for 4 minutes, and immediately blanch in cold iced water for 1-2 min to stop the cooking process. Drain, chop into bite-sized pieces and set aside.
  2. Next, bring a large pan of water to the boil and cook the pasta until al dente (this usually takes 7-8 minutes but check the packet for the exact cooking time).
  3. While the pasta is cooking, chop the artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, and sundried tomatoes into bite-sized chunks, and mix with the olives and asparagus.
  4. When the pasta is cooked drain it and transfers to a serving bowl. Add the olive oil and stir well to completely coat it.
  5. Add the chopped vegetables and optional tuna/sardines and toss
  6. Top it with fresh basil or parsley.

What are the benefits of this dish?

Optimizing detoxification should be an everyday duty rather than a “once or twice a year challenge”. Our liver is the primary organ involved in this process, and nourishing it on a regular basis with foods that support its function should be our #1 priority (particularly during this time of the year!).

Each of the ingredients on this dish has really powerful detoxifying and antioxidant properties.

These support the detox process by either

☘️ promoting bile production and release

☘️ supporting elimination through the 💩

☘️ properly “tagging” toxins for elimination

☘️ supplying an abundance of natural substances to ensure proper liver function

☘️ protecting it from damaging free radicals
