As ardent vegetable lovers, we just can't understand people who don't eat their veggies. They are delicious and so good for you! Hot, cold, raw, canned or frozen, you name it, the team here at GCFO like them all.
At GCFO, we’re the perfect veggie advocates and today, we’re going to share a couple of ways to eat more veggies, disguise them for those that refuse to eat them, and try new and easy ways to include them in your spring diet.
Yakimeshi is Japanese fried rice.
2 cups of steamed rice
1/2 cup of your favourite veggies (fresh, frozen or canned)
1 beaten egg
1/4 brown onion
2 green onions
Salt and pepper
1tsp of soy
Chop brown onion. Cut veggies into small pieces. Chop green onions finely. Then on a heated pan or wok, stir-fry onion and veggies with one Tbsp of oil. Once vegetables start to soften, add steamed rice and cook, using a spoon to break the rice apart. Pour beaten egg over the rice and cook until the egg hardens. Add green onions, salt pepper and the soy sauce and cook for one more minute and it is ready.
If you need your protein you can include cooked chicken, prawns, ham or beef. You can have this as a main or as a side, just remember; the more veggies the better!
This is the easiest recipe!
You just need:
500g ricotta cheese
2 packs of frozen spinach
1 pack fresh lasagne sheets
1 Canned tomato ragu
1/2 cup tasty cheese, grated
1/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper
First, preheat oven to 200C. Defrost frozen spinach, then squeeze and drain excess liquid. Stir in the ricotta cheese and season with salt and pepper. In a baking dish, layer spinach and ricotta mixture in between lasagne sheets. Top with canned tomato ragu. Sprinkle cheeses on top and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
Keep these recipes in mind next time you swing by the Golden Circle Factory Outlet, and pick up all the veggies, pasta, spices and other ingredients you need for this and other spring recipes.
