Lentil and carrot burgers

For a lot of moms, getting their children to eat fruits and vegetables can be an ordeal. It’s hard to imagine what kid would prefer lentils over a delicious hamburger. Maybe there are some out there who would take the lentils, but most children would probably go for fast food before something healthy, and sweet snacks before something fresh out of the fruit bowl.
Today we’re sharing a super tasty recipe for kids that will help you stick to a healthy and balanced diet while also keeping an eye out for your whole family’s nutrition, lentil and carrot burgers.
It’s also a vegetarian recipe that combines healthy foods like legumes and vegetables, which provide lots of important nutritional properties.
Lentils are crucial in a vegan or vegetarian diet because of their high protein content, which is a good alternative for meat. They also provide fiber, which helps prevent constipation and are great for people with cardiovascular problems. They are savory and filling without too many calories, which makes them an excellent option for healthy weight-loss diets.
Now it’s time to start preparing this quick and easy recipe that doesn’t require a whole lot of time, or any special kitchen utensils either.

INGREDIENTS

You can grab the vegetables off of our original FRUITWALL fruit bowl :-) What do you think of how we’ve decorated it for our recipe?

  • 500 grams of lentils
  • 4 carrots
  • 3 onions
  • Bread crumbs
  • Oil
  • Soy sauce (optional)

PREPARATION

If you are using dry lentils, allow them to soak overnight the day before preparing the recipe so that you can later rinse them and mash them with the help of a fork.
Chop the onion and fry it in the oil, being careful not to let it burn. Meanwhile, peel and grate the carrots. Once the onions get a perfect soft texture, incorporate the carrots into the frying pan and season with salt and a splash of soy sauce. Remove the mixture from the heat, turn off the stove, and let stand. Once the ingredients are well mixed, combine them with the mashed lentils and begin to create a homogenous dough. The breadcrumbs are used to absorb excess moisture and to add consistency to the medallions, so add them little by little until you can form the burgers and they maintain a compact shape. For the best shape, make a ball and then flatten it. Keep in mind not to add too much breadcrumb or you might end up with dry burgers. These burgers can be fried or baked using some oil spray, if you are following a weight-loss diet.
To serve, you might choose to accompany the dish with a fresh salad of your favorite vegetables, or make classic burgers with buns and cheese, which should make this healthy meal even more appealing to children. You can add other vegetables to take advantage of what you have at home, like boiled spinach or grated beets. Whatever extras you decide to use, they should be incorporate at the same time as the carrots. The design of the FRUITWALL fruit bowl lets you visualize the fruits and vegetables that you have, so you can plan your healthy diet without wasting ingredients. Plus, it will help you to organize your kitchen while also adding a special decorative touch with all the colors of your produce.
Test out this recipe and you’ll see how everything in the family will love this healthy and nutritious meal.

Enjoy your meal!

Pomegranate with orange juice, an amazing combo for Vitamin C

Hello again! There’s no better time of the year to be taking lots of Vitamin C than right now!

The cold weather has arrived in the Northern Hemisphere along with cold and flus – oh no!! Who wants to spend a week in bed with a runny nose and aches and pains all over? Not me! :-)

This simple recipe will help you to take a good dose of Vitamin C! Plus, it offers lots of other benefits that Mother Nature brings to us in her greenest packaging- the fruits themselves! And of course, eating seasonal fruits is even better, since that’s when all of their health properties are at peak potential!

 

INGREDIENTS

As you can see in the photo above of our FRUITWALL fruit “bowl,” this recipe only uses two ingredients.

  • 4 pomegranates
  • 8 oranges

PREPARATION

Oranges

As I was saying, it’s best to eat them while they’re in season, from November to May. They have lots of beneficial properties: they are antioxidants, cleansers, disinfectants, and stimulate the immune system. They have high Vitamin C content, which helps our immune system to fight off colds and flus. But an orange has even more benefits! They are rich in Vitamins A, B, and E and minerals like calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium that also help to keep our immune system strong.

Pomegranates

Pomegranates are in season throughout autumn. They contain Vitamins C and E and minerals like potassium. Like I mentioned, Vitamin C is great for keeping up our defenses during this time of year!

Plus, they are a low-calorie food, which we think is pretty good news.

The recipe is very simple. Peel the pomegranates, place the seeds in a bowl, and pour orange juice over them. Easy, right? It can be a simple and fantastic dessert or breakfast, that adults and children alike will love.

If you don’t like dealing with all the little bits, you can put the pomegranate seeds in a blender and then strain the liquid after for an even smoother final result. When I eat fruit, I like to avoid throwing away any parts, so I’ll even add what’s left in the juicer back into the juice, which by the way is a great source of fiber!

And I don’t want to say goodbye without a quick reminder that we should all try our best to eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day to maintain a healthy diet! :-)

Enjoy your meal!

FRUITWALL Cream of Zucchini
FRUITWALL Cream of Zucchini

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 large zucchinis
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 pieces of KIRI cheese (can be substituted with any smooth, soft cheese)
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ liter of water
  • Salt and pepper to taste

PREPARATION

Begin by coating the bottom of a large pot with plenty of olive oil. Dice the onion and add it to the pot on low heat, stirring as the onions sweat. Meanwhile, wash, peel, and cut the zucchini into slices, and add the slices into the pot with the onion. Mix this combination well, and add the water. Continue stirring and apply maximum heat until the water begins to boil, so that the vegetables soften in order to blend them. Once the vegetables are completely cooked, add the cheese and stir until completely melted. Season with salt and pepper and remove from heat. As the next step is blending the mixture, if you are going to use an electric blender, it is advisable to let the cream cool down first to avoid burns from any splashes. Taste test the cream once blended, add more seasoning as preferred, and continue to blend. When serving, feel free to add crackers or toasts to accompany this healthy and delicious recipe, and don’t forget to top it off with a little pour of extra virgin olive oil!

Enjoy your meal!

Spinach Salad with Pears

When we’re deciding what to eat, we normally think about the fruits and vegetables that we have at home and on-hand. An issue that we’ve all run into, however, is looking in the refrigerator or freezer only to find ingredients that have been forgotten about and aren’t any good to use for a fresh recipe.

That’s why you should count on a fruit bowl that lets you see all of your fruits and vegetables! It won’t just allow you to take advantage of your produce when it’s ripest, it will even help you eat well and maintain a healthy diet. And, the design will let you “decorate” a space with all the colors of your fresh fruits and vegetables!

In this case, we’ll see how to combine spinach with pears for a fresh and nutritious salad, so you can stick to a guilt-free diet. You can serve this salad as a vegetarian main course, or feature it as a side dish with fish or poultry.

Apart from being a balanced recipe, this spinach and pear salad packs an important punch of nutrients without a high calorie count. Spinach has more protein than the majority of other vegetables, along with fiber, vitamins A, C, E, K, and the B-vitamin group. It is also a good source of folic acid and fatty omega-3 acids, and minerals like calcium, manganese, magnesium, potassium, iron, and phosphorus.

The pear is a fruit with important diuretic properties, and so it is recommended for those looking to lose a little extra weight. It can help reduce problems with retention of liquids and also has other nutrients, especially soluble fiber, to prevent constipation and reduce bad cholesterol.

Take a look at the ingredients that you’ll need to make this delicious dish, so you can grab whatever you might be missing. You’ll see that this salad has everything to become a staple in your collection of fast and easy recipes.

INGREDIENTS

  • Spinach 300 grams
  • 2 Pears
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 Teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Olive oil
  • The juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: varied seeds (sesame, flax, etc.)

PREPARATION

This salad is one of those quick recipes that you can add to your diet if you’re looking to lose weight. It’s advisable to prepare it just before serving, so it stays looking nice and fresh.
To start, wash the pears and spinach. Cut the pears and the onion in thin slices and separate the spinach leaves by hand.
Mix the three ingredients in whatever vessel you will use to serve the salad.
Then, mix the Dijon mustard with the lemon juice and olive oil to make vinaigrette. Add salt and pepper to taste. Just before serving, dress the salad with the vinaigrette. This vegetarian salad can be made heartier by adding flax, sesame, or poppy seeds, which will also add a nice crunchy texture.
We’re sure that you’ll enjoy this recipe that’s all about freshness, perfect for eating light when you’re in a rush or on a hot summer day!

Now it’s time to brown the onion, using the same frying pan and oil we used for the potatoes. Onion is a perfect addition to this dish, since its flavor combines fantastically with potatoes and a good olive oil. Once the onions are sweated and with a nice golden color, we spread them evenly on top of the potatoes.
Now is the perfect moment to add a splash of color to the recipe! Thoroughly wash the orange and lemon to get rid of any residue or substances that should not be ingested. Cut them in slices, and place them around the entire baking sheet.
To finish, we place the slices of hake in the center of the baking sheet. Add salt to taste, a little parsley, and another generous drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Bake for 45-50 minutes at 180°. For any lemon-lovers out there, juicing a lemon on top of the hake will add even more flavor!

Enjoy your meal!

Grilled Vegetable Platter

What could be better for a get-together with friends than a good old barbecue? One problem you might have encountered when planning a cookout is a friend who prefers to avoid eating meat. For some people, not consuming meat can be an important health decision for a variety of reasons.

With those friends and family in mind, today we present a vegetarian recipe that is sure to make your next barbecue a hit. Grilling vegetables is an easy and nutritious way to serve a meat alternative that is packed with flavor.

The most important part of grilling vegetables is the preparation beforehand, since cooking is really just a matter of making sure the vegetables cook evenly and don’t burn.

If maintaining a healthy and balanced diet is important to you, remember that the more color you incorporate in your vegetable platter, the more you’ll be taking advantage of this simple, healthy recipe!

We should note that these ingredients are only recommendations. Use whatever vegetables you have in your fruit bowl or refrigerator for greater variety.

When it comes to picking produce, a FRUITWALL will help you see what you have on hand and what you’ll need to buy at the market. A FRUITWALL also helps to keep your kitchen tidy and adds a splash of color from all the fresh fruit and vegetables on display. You’ll be more inspired than ever to throw some vegetables on the grill!

It’s time to start preparing this delicious recipe!

INGREDIENTS

  • Red, yellow, and green peppers
  • Onions
  • Eggplant
  • Zucchini
  • Asparagus
  • Olive oil, salt and pepper
  • Optional: cheese, herbs, eggs

PREPARATION

Onions

Remove the outer skin and cut in half. Place the halves on the grill with the outsides of the onion facing the flames. Wait until golden brown and remove.

 

Recipe Grilled Vegetable Platter - Receta Parrillada de verduras
Recipe Grilled Vegetable Platter

Eggplant and Zucchini

Cut into two-centimeter slices, and season with salt. Prepare a marinade with oil, and whatever mixture of herbs that you prefer. We suggest thyme and oregano mixed with a bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Coat each slice with the marinade, and grill until soft. If you wish, you can add a small slice of cheese to each piece a moment before removing them from the flames.

 

Asparagus

Give the asparagus a good rinse and, for optimum flavor, snap the end of each piece using your hands. Grab each piece and apply some pressure by bending the stalk, and the asparagus will naturally break at the point separating the soft, tender part from the tough, fibrous end. Some pieces will be longer than others, but this is the best way to be sure that we are cooking the most flavorful part of this delicious vegetable!


Red, yellow, and green peppers

Cut the peppers in half, remove the core and seeds, and clean the white parts inside the pepper. Place the peppers on the grill, with the inner side facing the flames for about 2 to 3 minutes.

Cut slices of cheese and chop fresh herbs. Turn the peppers and season with salt, pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil.  Place slices of cheese and herbs inside each pepper. Cover the cheese by cracking an egg inside each pepper, and wait until fully cooked.

If you are preparing a vegan vegetable platter, you can simply use your preferred vegan cheese and eliminate the eggs. Remember that these are just our recommendations for vegetables, and that the beauty of a grilled vegetable platter is that you can experiment and be creative, all while making a colorful and healthy dish!
