For a healthy diet strictly speaking, everyone needs their own meal plan based on a metabolic analysis. But that doesn’t mean there are no recommendations we can follow to prepare tasty meals! We share a healthy dinner idea with you.
Reading time: 3 minutes.
A healthy dinner is balanced and contains fiber and vitamins, so it is preferable that it contains fresh vegetables and as little processed foods as possible. We can not miss the nuts, legumes and healthy fats.
Idea for a healthy, warm dinner: pea stew
Legumes are the stars of healthy nutrition. Peas, for example, are rich in fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals, but they are also low in calories. They are easy to digest and lower blood sugar levels. Dried peas contain even more protein than fresh peas and have a much longer shelf life. Even frozen peas contain all the important ingredients you need for a healthy, warm dinner.
- 150 g. of fresh, frozen or dried peas.
- 2 onions
- 1 garlic clove
- ½ celery
- 1 leek
- 3 carrots
- 3 potatoes
- Olive or vegetable oil
- Salt and pepper
- Mustard and tomato paste
- 2 liters of vegetable stock
- To taste: 1 bay leaf, chili pepper, marjoram, caraway, lovage, celery, parsley, smoked paprika
- Optional: bacon
- Wash and chop the onions, garlic, celery, leeks, carrots and potatoes. The smaller, the faster it cooks.
- Heat the oil in a saucepan, sauté the onions, add the garlic, bay leaves (and bacon in the non-vegetarian version) and finally the peas.
- Add the remaining vegetables and a little salt.
- Steam the vegetables for 5 minutes, then add the mustard, tomato paste and spices.
- Deglaze with the broth, let everything cook for about 1 hour (or until the potatoes are soft), season again and serve with whole wheat bread.
Enjoy your meal!
