Simple recipes with superfoods for summer
23rd May 2021
Summer is coming and the heat and the lack of desire to get into the kitchen with it. This should not be an excuse to eat poorly, on the contrary, there are many simple recipes with superfoods that provide us with the necessary nutrients and require minimal preparation time.
We propose a simple menu from the moment we get up until dinner so that you can put it into practice.
All-day superfood menu
Nothing simpler than preparing a bowl of oat milk with quinoa flakes, a little lemon zest, a sprig of cinnamon and honey to taste. In less than 5 seconds you'll be having a super breakfast with multiple properties.
Wholemeal toast with extra virgin olive oil. Could it get any simpler? It certainly couldn't!
In summer, what we like most is to eat cool meals, so we suggest a light salad of broccoli, avocado, finely chopped onion and raw spinach leaves. For the dressing we use pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and a ginger vinaigrette.
How to prepare ginger dressing?
You need virgin olive oil, lemon, soy sauce, garlic, honey, Dijon mustard and chopped ginger.
Mix the ingredients in a blender, the quantities depend a little on your palate. If you are looking for an intense flavour, add more garlic. Keep the resulting sauce in the fridge. Remember that you can use it in salads and vegetables as well as with fish or tofu.
Green tea lassi: prepare a green tea bag in half a glass of hot water. Let it steep for 5 minutes and add honey to taste. Mix it in a blender with a handful of blueberries, half a ripe mango and natural Greek yoghurt. If you want to give it a special touch you can add a few drops of rose water.
Have you got leftover broccoli? Make the most of it by making a broccoli wok with shiitake.
Clean the broccoli and cut it into small florets. Put a pan on the heat with a little water and the broccoli, add salt to taste and bring to the boil. When it comes to the boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Drain the broccoli and set aside for later.
Now it's time to peel and chop the onion, then sauté it with olive oil in a wok or large frying pan, add grated fresh ginger. Mix well and add the mushrooms, season to taste and allow the juices to evaporate.
Then add the pine nuts, stir a couple of times and add the well-drained broccoli. Continue stirring and sautéing the ingredients, then add the soy sauce to taste. Finally, sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
