Recently I’ve started to be more conscious of the food I snack on during the day. To make my meals healthier I decided to make fullfilling salads for dinner. So on this blog post I am going to show you how to make a simple salad that you don’t need fancy ingredients for (apart from one maybe) and can quickly make.
What you’ll need:
- 250g spinach
- 3 tomatoes
- Half of a cucumber
- Olive oil
- 1 avocado
- 250g cauliflower rice
- Variety of spices
- Pumpkin seeds for finishing
To start off, cut your vegetables into small pieces. Whilst doing that place your spinach into a microwaveable container and add 2 tablespoons of water to steam the spinach.
You spinach should look something like this:
Regarding the cauliflower rice you need to place it in the microwave with a pierced lid for around 4 minutes (800W microwave).
During the time it takes for the cauliflower rice to cook, you can make the sauce. For this you will need 3 tbsp of olive oil, 3 tbsp of water, spices including coriander, parsley and basil. To top it off you can add salt and pepper; mix thoroughly.
Add everything to the bowl and drizzle the sauce on the top. You can add some pumpkin seeds to make the salad have some crunch and more flavour. Mix till everything is coated with the sauce.
Your finished salad should now look vibrant and colourful. It’s full of healthy fats and fibre. Great for a light dinner or lunch. Enjoy and see you next week! Until next time…
