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:
3 courgettes made into noodles
250 gr small tomatoes, halved
2 cloves garlic, minced
200 gr cottage cheese
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.
note: If you don't have a spiralizer you can grate the courgettes.
Pick me up soup:
2 handful fresh kale or broccoli florets
2 spring onions
1 clove garlic
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.
In a food processor place:
100 gr ground almonds
4 Tbsp desiccated coconut
2 Tbsp sunflower seeds
2 Tbsp goji berries
2 Tbsp peanut butter
1 tsp cinammon
1 Tbsp ground flax seeds
2 Tbsp honey or maple syrup
Blitz all the ingredients until smooth and add 2 Tbsp cold water.
Blitz one more time.
Form 10 to 12 balls using wet hands.
Store the balls in a fridge.
