Salmon & Greens – One Pan MealNo time? No worries!! This is the perfect easy dish to whip up after a long day. It ticks all the boxes, healthy, fast and delicious. Simplicity is best when it comes to cooking, especially these days with everyone living busy lives. This dish is something you can prepare in a matter of minutes. It’s so basic and only contains a few ingredients, yet is super nourishing. Salmon is one of my favourite foods, it’s jam-packed full of goodness. It’s a fantastic source of easily digested protein, high in omega-3 as well as vitamins like vitamin D, A and some members of the B-family. If you wanted to bulk this meal up you could easily add some brown rice or quinoa to the dish for more added health benefits.
Black Bean & Seed PattiesThese yummy protein-rich veggie patties are extremely nutritious, just by eating them you will feel healthier! I love making these when I feel like a light, meat free meal. The combination of black beans and seeds ensures you get all essential amino acids, making these patties high in protein. Black beans are also high in fiber, which supports the movement of food through the digestive system. Pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds contain an array of nutrients together such as zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, manganese, copper, vitamin E, B vitamins, they also provide antioxidant support and much more. Over the years I have made these for my partner and friends who have devoured them, they have always been a hit! They are a great vegetarian option to meat patties and always satisfy the taste buds. Another bonus is they are super easy and simple to make, you pretty much throw the ingredients together in a food processor, blitz it up, form them into patties, then pop them into the oven to cook. They are delicious hot or cold, and can be served alongside a fresh salad, in burger buns or stuffed into lettuce wraps for a gluten-free option. They also freeze well, so if you don’t finish them all you could easily store them in a sealed container in the freezer.
Curried Pumpkin SoupThis is such a warming, comforting and nourishing dish. It's perfect for chilly winter evenings, or any evening really. I actually make this soup all year round as my husband loves it, and it's perfect on nights when you feel like something easy and light. By using coconut cream and chickpeas it ensures you get some healthy fats and a little bit of protein into each mouthful. It also contains some great spices to help aid digestion. This makes quite a large portion, I normally get 4-5 meals out of it as I like to enjoy it the following day for lunch, however you can easily half the ingredients. I also enjoy making a large batch as I often freeze it, so when I want a break from cooking I can easily grab a portion or two out from the freezer and pop it on the stove for a quick easy meal.
Salmon Quinoa SushiThese sushi rolls really have it all, and taste incredible! Quinoa is a nourishing alternative to white rice and is a good source of protein, fiber, and minerals. The salmon is high in omega 3's and the avocado is full of delicious good fats. Nori is another star of this recipe and is a very beneficial addition to the diet due to its high fiber and mineral content, it's also a great source of iodine which is essential for thyroid, ovary, vascular, and breast health. These are great for a light lunch or dinner, and if you double up on the quantities you can pop some away and enjoy them for lunch the following day. Don't worry if you haven't made sushi before, it's not as complicated as you may think.
