LOADED WITH FLAVOR

Our day-to-day life is made of a number of tasks and routines that many times do not allow us to have time to prepare a complete dish, and we often end up eating something quick, easy but poor if we talk about nutrition. If we did this one time, it was not that bad, the impact on our body would not be significant to be concerned about it.

 

The problem is that this happens more often than we would like to, because we have no time, patience, ideas,… so today I bring to you a recipe that you can do everything in advance, and when were time to eat, you just need to heat it et voilá! It feels so good to arrive at meal time and have everything ready to enjoy!

 

Oh! And if you are from the lunchbox team, this recipe is also perfect to take with you in your lunchbox and eat cold, it stay also delicious.

 

I put together a dish made of sautéed vegetables with bulgur, broccoli and a peanut sauce that is loaded with essential nutrients and flavor. Yes, because eating healthy is not eating without flavor, please stop believing in this myth!

 

“But why did you choose bulgur?” It’s a good question! I chose bulgur because I think it is extremely important that we have a varied diet, and as you already know how to cook rice and quinoa and these are already part of your daily pantry, I decided to bring the bulgur to add to your range of healthy and easy options.

 

Bulgur is a whole grain, from the Middle East, obtained from parboiled, dried and crushed whole wheat grains. Does this make it an ultra-processed food? Not at all, bulgur is a lightly processed grain and that means it maintains its nutritional value quite high. Rich in fiber and protein, bulgur is still an incredible source of manganese, magnesium and iron. The only drawback of bulgur, and since it comes from wheat, is that it cannot be consumed by people who have an intolerance or allergy to gluten.

 

Like all wholesome, fiber-rich foods, bulgur helps to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, also it helps to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, improves digestion and contributes to improved intestinal health.

 

It is very simple to cook with bulgur, super fast and versatile, it can replace any dish that is usually eaten with rice.

THIS RECIPE IS:

NOURISHING| HEALTHY | EASY | QUICK | PERFECT FOR LUNCH BOXES | EASY TO ADAPT

 

And what I have to say about this recipe? Very little, just that it is made pretty quick and that you can eat right away, or store each part in small containers in the fridge and assemble the plate or lunch box when necessary and as you wish.

 

You can substitute broccoli for any other green vegetable of your choice, if you don’t have bulgur at home you can make it with rice, quinoa, millet, with the grain you prefer, you can add on something else if you want. This type of meal is very customizable to what you have at home or what you like to eat.

 

This is just a clean base that will allow you to give wings to your gastronomic creativity!

7- Boil the broccoli preferably without salt.
