healthy recipes

Lasagna is one of those dishes that never fails and we can vary a lot in combinations. Today we bring you a recipe from @myfeedchoices. We replaced the white sauce with a pumpkin and cauliflower sauce, it's super creamy and replaces very well the traditional white sauce. For the filling we used mushrooms, white beans and spinach, but you can use whatever filling you prefer. We usually prefer fresh pasta to make lasagna, but you can also use dried pasta if you prefer.

Preparation time: 45 minutes

Serves 4 people.

Vegetarian or vegan: Vegan

Ingredients:

For the sauce

  • 655g butter pumpkin (1 butternut squash) 
  • 390g cauliflower (1 small cauliflower) 
  • 500ml water 
  • 3 sage leaves 
  • 1 dash of olive oil - Salt to taste

For the filling

  • 300g fresh spinach 
  • 1 purple onion, chopped 
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced 
  • 300g chopped mushrooms 
  • 1 grated carrot 
  • 490g cooked white beans 
  • Salt, olive oil, black pepper 
  • 6 lasagna sheets (I used fresh)

Method of Preparation:

Sauce

  1. Put a dash of olive oil in the bottom of a pan and start by toasting the sage leaves. 
  2. Add the pumpkin and cauliflower, season with salt and pepper, and let it roast lightly.
  3. Cover with the water and let it cook until the squash and cauliflower are cooked.
  4. Remove the sage and grind it all with a hand blender.

  3. In an oven tray place a base of pumpkin sauce, a layer of pasta and then the filling and repeat the process ending with a layer of sauce.

3) Green Smoothie

Green smoothies are a great way to include vegetables in your diet in a delicious and easy way. In addition, they are rich in nutrients and antioxidants, and help detoxify the body. The @danielafoneves smoothie is perfect for those who want to start the day with an extra dose of energy and nutrients.

Serves: 3 cups

Vegan/Vegetarian: Yes

Ingredients:

  • 1 kiwi
  • 2 apples
  • 1 piece of fresh ginger to taste
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 glass of water
  • 2 handfuls of spinach

Preparation: Put all the chopped ingredients into the blender! It doesn't get simpler than this!

Tips:

If you prefer juice rather than smoothie, just add more water until it is at your favorite consistency!

If you don't consume it all on the spot, it is normal that the pulp separates from the water, just mix it all again (with a cutlery wheel) and it's perfect!

4) Roasted cabbage in tomato and spinach sauce with feta cheese 

If one of your goals this year is to prepare more healthy recipes in which plants are the protagonists, then you will love this roasted cabbage recipe, because it is delicious, very easy to make and practical. This is our recipe in conjunction with @healthyvibesbyvero.

roasted cabbage

Ingredients:

  • 1 head of Savoy cabbage
  • 1 can of crushed tomatoes
  • 1 shallot or 1/2 white onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 handfuls of fresh spinach (can be frozen too)
  • 50g feta cheese (or other cheese of your choice)
  • Fresh parsley to finish

Seasoning sauce for the cabbage:

Olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, oregano, salt and black pepper to taste.

Method:

1. wash and cut the cabbage in half and then into half-moons, keeping the stalk intact to help keep the cabbage slices in shape.

2. Distribute the cabbage on a baking tray and brush it with the seasoning sauce.

3. Bake the cabbage in a preheated oven at 170 degrees for about 30 minutes. Turn it over at 15 minutes so that it bakes evenly.

4. Meanwhile, in a pan, saute the onion and garlic, add the oregano, the crushed tomatoes and, in the last 3-4 minutes, add the fresh spinach.

5. Transfer the sauce to a serving dish, distribute the cabbage on top, add the cheese, and bake in the oven for another 5 minutes (broiler function) to get the cheese more incorporated into the sauce.

6. Finally, add the chopped parsley and it is ready to serve.
