With little time and things you have in the fridge or pantry, you can make rich, complete, and balanced meals in no time. And so, eat healthy without heating your head.
- Chickpeas with octopus and sauteed peas:
Canned chickpeas also give a lot of play to make easy meals with healthy processed foods. Brown a few slices of garlic in a pan with a little oil. Add at once a mixture of well-drained chickpeas and slices of octopus leg of the one they sell already cooked. Don’t stir the pan until they start to brown. Add some drained canned peas and julienned onion. Sauté a little more, add chopped parsley, and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
To add more vegetables, you can add some boiled and drained frozen spinach. Or add some fresh spinach leaves that they sell already washed after adding the peas and onion and cook until they lose the water. Or even add them raw at the end of the stew.
- Zucchini noodles with egg and mushrooms:
It is as simple as taking some zucchini spaghetti that they sell already prepared in the vegetable section (or making them at home with the help of a knife, a potato peeler, or a spiralizer). You saute or blanch them, but keep in mind that when it’s fresh, zucchini can also be eaten raw. You complete it with some mushrooms sauteed with garlic and parsley; You can use the ones they sell already washed and cut or some from the boat or frozen. And top it off with a boiled or soft-boiled egg.
To make it more complete, you can accompany it with a slice of bread.
- Peas with onion and squid:
Another fast food that you can make with healthy processed foods is to saute some squid rings with some strips of red onion and, when they are almost done, add some boiled peas and sauté it all together. If you throw in frozen or canned peas, it takes next to no time to have them ready.
To complete the dish, you can accompany it with a bowl of cream of vegetables, which you can have made beforehand, and freeze it in portions so that you only have to take them out and heat them when necessary.
