Healthy Recipes For Fun Nights In

Yes indeed! Eating well can be fun even without Jamie Oliver in the kitchen. Here are some ideas on how to create some recipes that you can change and adapt so that you don’t get bored and you don’t need to be a chef to make them.

Before I start getting your creative kitchen juices flowing, I just want to say that healthy means leaving out certain things, like french fries and other fried foods, or at least only eat now and then, and include lots of raw and well-mixed fruits and vegetables. Nuts and seeds are also good for health. Here are some ideas to get you started…

Minced beef paste (use good lean beef)

Because burgers are usually the favorite I found your minced beef which is made of half minced beef and half grated carrots, which is what makes it healthier than beef clear Add to it even if you like seasoning – my favorite is finely chopped onion, ground black pepper, a liberal amount of crushed garlic gloves, salt for the season and more chopped fresh mint or dry mint leaves. The mint gives it an Arab kebab twist. You can use parsley, thyme, rosemary, watercress or add some hot peppers or curry peppers for spice.

Here’s what you can do with it:

  • Make it into burgers or roll it into sausages glazed with olive oil and bake them
  • Make it into balls and put it in tomato juice to make meatballs
  • Put in a loaf and bake in a loaf tin for a meat loaf that can be eaten hot or cold and taken to work for lunch
  • Mix the red, green and yellow peppers with the paste and then roast them in the oven to create a colorful and appetizing dish.

Serve with green vegetables, broccoli or cauliflower and a mixture of sweet potatoes and potatoes, or if you do the pork make them on a brown bed. Add raw vegetables such as leafy greens, cucumbers, spring onions and tomatoes or anything you like raw. Sprinkle your salad with nuts and seeds for some extra nutrition.

Fish tickle your thoughts

I know that fish is not always popular and sometimes it is difficult to get a good fish, but the good thing about fish is that it is a fast food because it cooks very quickly. Buy fresh or frozen meat with the skin still on (haddock, cod or something that looks good for the day). Put it on a baking tray, skin side and cover it with seasoned cold pressed olive oil. For seasoning use a small amount of salt add a handful of finely chopped parsley, a small onion finely chopped, a crushed clove of garlic and a pinch of salt and pepper – all mixed in the olive oil. Grill it in a medium to hot grill and it will be ready in no time.

You can use the same fish to make fish stew by adding some tomatoes and cooking it in a pot. Leave the skin or remove, whichever is your preference, I usually leave it as I think the flavor is better and the fish holds together better too. Replace the parsley with coriander for an extra oriental flavor.

Serve it with all kinds of steamed vegetables and raw salads that will use your beauty.

Soup for every season

Soups can be very tasty and very easy to make. My favorite is the rustic bean and vegetable recipe that includes two types of beans (soaked for 24 hours before cooking), pearl barley, this is a ‘must have’ in the soup because it makes the liquid vegetables thick and creamy, red lentils and brown. rice. I usually soak the lentils, rice and barley for an hour before cooking. The beans and rice go into a large pot with three dry leaves, to boil for 20 minutes then simmer slowly until cooked.

For cooked rice and beans add more diced or shredded vegetables and add water if needed, add salt and pepper to season. All vegetables except starchy ones such as potatoes are good, for example carrots, green cabbage and sweet corn, peppers and green beans. I always add a large onion and about four crushed cloves of garlic plus some fresh or dried herbs, such as rosemary to create flavor. If you want an extra boost of health throw in some nuts and seeds before you cook. A large pot of this soup can last for several servings if you need it.
