Healthy recipes thread

edited March 2010 in The bottom bracket
I did a quick search and there doesn’t appear to be a healthy recipes thread. One or two mentions in MTB and commuter sections, but nothing dedicated to one of my favourite topics. Food!
I thought it might be a good idea to have one? Mainly because I’m a fat bloater! The main aim of the thread is to post recipes that are quick, easy, and most importantly delicious and good for you? Mine to start off, a completely random effort:

Butternut squash and Red pepper Soup.

Peel and chop one medium sized Butternut squash, one Red pepper, and one Onion. Add all to a large pot, and add 2 pints of hot vegetable stock.
Bring to the boil, & then simmer for 20 – 25 minutes until the butternut squash is soft and tender (cooked).
Blend all, add freshly ground black pepper and serve with fresh crusty bread! Viola! Done. Delicious.

Info: Butternut squash is a well-balanced food source that is rich in complex carbohydrates and low in saturated fat and sodium. It is a very good source of vitamins A and C and a good source of beta-carotene, magnesium, manganese, calcium and potassium.

Anyone else got a good “healthy” recipe to share?

    One of my favourites. Tasty, cheap and quick............


    Portion(s) of spaghetti. While cooking simply warm a couple of tablespoons of olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon of chilli flakes. Stir in a clove or two of crushed garlic into the oil when the spaghetti is ready. Don't overheat and burn. Stir into cooked spaghetti. Serve with warm ciabatta and a few 'on the vine' tomatoes, if desired.

    I can see where this may be going! The Fish is off, and off the menu! There are several other fishy threads currently running?
