This exotic dish will not only taste delicious, but also boost your immune system before the winter.


300 g salmon in dices

100 ml coconut milk

50 ml Maize flour

Salt and pepper

Red onion, diced

1 garlic clove, finely chopped

1 tsp fresh ginger

¼ red chilli, finely chopped

1 cup fish stock

Rinse and chop the vegetables and turn the diced salmon in maize flour. Shake off the excess flour. Heat up oil in a pan and cook the salmon until it is golden. Spice with salt and pepper before you put it on a separate plate. Cook the squash, onion, carrots and spring onions for a couple of minutes. Mix in the coconut milk, soy sauce, ginger, fish stock, garlic and chili and let it boil up. Add the salmon and let it heat up for a couple of minutes. Serve with whole grain pasta or brown rice.



2. Fresh Pasta Salad with Shrimps

A pasta salad can be mixed in a thousand different ways. This specific one is with shrimps, but you are welcome to replace it with chicken or ham.


150 g whole grain pasta

½ red onion, sliced or diced

1 garlic clove, finely chopped

½ squash, diced

½ bell pepper, sliced

2-3 spring onions, chopped

75 g button mushrooms, sliced

5 tbsp sweet chili sauce

150 g peeled shrimps

Boil the pasta and set aside. Wash and chop all the vegetables. Heat up oil in a pan, and fry onion and garlic on high heat for 1 minute. Lower the temperature to medium and add mushrooms, bell pepper, spring onions and squash. Leave it in for about 1 minute and stir continuously before you add the sweet chili sauce and pasta. Let the dish heat up properly and add the shrimps.


chicken with lentils

3. Chicken With Lentils and Spinach

This juicy dish is simple to make and perfectly healthy. Serve it with fresh bread or boiled vegetables.


2 Chicken filets

2 tbsp butter

1 small onion, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, finely chopped

1 tsp garam masala

1 tsp curry

½ tsp cardamom

200 ml green lentils

300 ml water

1 big tomato

100 g fresh spinach

Juice of 1 lemon

Rinse and chop the vegetables. Heat up oil in a pan and add the onion. Cook it until it is soft before you add garlic, water, lentils and spices. Let it all boil quietly, about 20 minutes. Boil water in a separate bowl. Make a cross at the top of the tomato and cut a ring around the stem area. Drop the tomato in boiling water until the skin comes off, and bring it immediately to cold water. Dice and mix it in with the lentils before you add spinach and a bit of lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Dry the chicken filets lightly and brown the butter in a pan. Fry until they are nice and brown, about 2 minutes on each side. Turn the heat down to low and let them cook for about 5 minutes – until they are cooked through. Spice with salt and pepper and leave to rest for 3 minutes.


vegetable patties

4. Golden Vegetable Patties with Creamed Spinach

Surprise your family with a delicious vegetarian dish packed with flavour. Serve it with creamed spinach or a crispy salad.


1 small onion, shredded

2 carrots, shredded

2 potatoes, shredded

100 g celery root, shredded

1 egg

2 tbsp flour

½ tsp pepper

½ tsp salt

1 tbsp butter

Rinse the vegetables and shred them with a shredder. Mix them with egg, flour and pepper until it becomes a thick mash. Leave it for about 5 minutes to rest before mixing in the salt. Use your hands to shape 4-6 flat patties, about 1 cm thick. Brown butter in a pan and cook them until they are golden and crispy, approximately 10 minutes on each side. Serve with cranberry jam to taste.
