I could come up with a fancy name for it. I can call it a keto meal or something. But in fact, this is a regular meal that can be done by anyone, at any time, for maximum of 30 minutes. If you like, you can cook it in bulk and have another ready meal to consume.
Why can be done by anyone. Because there is no exact recipe for it. There are no measurements, no specific products. The beauty of it, is that it is very customizable.
You don’t like asparagus, OK then not asparagus, you like mushrooms, OK then you add mushrooms. You choose what to add really. In my case I add whatever I have and like.
You can add whatever spices you like and even cook the steak the way you prefer. Bake it, grill it, you choose.
The goal of this recipe is to teach you that:
1. You can create a meal with your imagination.
2. If you know yourself and have more understanding of food, you can make it healthier than ever.
So, let’s see what I came up with.
In terms of vegetables, I managed to find this:
Courgettes/ Zucchini, Onion, Asparagus, Leaks, Canned Sweet corn and Green peas
I fried all of that with a bit of olive oil.
Along that I managed to find a chickpeas pasta. Weird, right? But I liked the nutritional value, and it was the only pasta I could find.
Boiled the pasta for 10 minutes, drained the water and added to the vegetables.
It looked a bit unfinished somehow, so I added a bit of cooking cream, to make it fancier.
That on itself can be a meal. A pretty big one in fact so I decided to split it on half and add a steak to it. I had marinated some form the day before. Nothing fancy. Olive oil, garlic, and some seasoning. Quickly fried it on the pan, without oil (the marinate was enough oily already) and voila.
I must admit I was surprised. It was more delicious than I expected. It inspired me to share it with you. But not to show off. It inspired me to share a customizable, simple, healthy, and delicious recipe. You have so many options. Add different pasta or don’t add pasta at all. Use whatever vegetables you want. Do not add the cream. Change the meat. Use different marinate. You can even buy the meat, already marinated. Or not buy any if you don’t like.
Healthy meals can be delicious, but that only depends on you. They are easy, fast and you can’t disagree, that are better than microwaved pizza.
