National Vegetarian Week

For Vegetarian week I have selected these three recipes for a reason. They are really quick meals to cook,  they have Alkaline fresh ingredients that nourishes my body, energize me and make me happy at the same time....

Spring on a plate:
serve 4

3 courgettes made into noodles 
250 gr small tomatoes, halved 
2 cloves garlic, minced
200 gr cottage cheese 
olive oil
salt and pepper
fresh basil leaves

Place the cheese into a sieve or colander to drain off the liquid.
In a big non stick pan heat up a big splash of oil.
Add the garlic followed by the courgettes and the tomatoes.
Sprinkle some salt and pepper and stir for a bit until the tomatoes get wilted.
Add the cheese and fresh basil leaves.
Serve immediately!

note: If you don't have a spiralizer you can grate the courgettes.

Pick me up soup:
serve 4

2 handful fresh kale or broccoli florets
2 spring onions
1 clove garlic
1 potato
200 gr frozen peas
4-5 cubes frozen spinach 
salt and pepper

In a big soup pan heat up some oil, add the minced garlic and almost immedietely add the fresh greens, followed by the potato cut into a cubes. 
Add one litre of water, stock cube if you are using or just add salt.
Cook for 8 minute.
Add the frozen veggies and cook for 2 more minutes.
Taste, add some more salt and pepper if needed.
Blend the soup until smooth.
Before serving add some extra virgin olive oil.
