This is the ultimate home-made fast-food which takes minutes to put together and only 12 minutes to cook. Spiralizing vegetables might not be a new thing but it is definitely one of the easiest and tastiest ways to get veggies into kids. Making parcels is simple and is a really fun way of serving food – this is definitely the dish of choice whenever my kids have their friends over. This delicious and simple meal is loaded with cell-protective antioxidants as well as anti-inflammatory and brain boosting omega 3 fatty acids. Frozen salmon also works a treat in this dish. All you need to do is increase cooking time to 20 minutes. Wild salmon is superior in every way to farmed salmon, both in terms of taste and nutrition, so wherever possible choose the wild stuff.
What you spiralize will depend on the equipment you have. For courgettes and carrots a simple spiralizer will do but I like spiralizing sweet potatoes, celeriac, beetroot and butternut squash. I have gone through half a dozen spiralizers in my kitchen and none of them could do the job well with the more awkward shaped vegetables until I found the Chiba Professional Japanese Spiralizer. It is an investment for sure but when it takes less than 10 seconds to effortlessly spiralize a whole celeriac then it is worth every penny. I have no affiliations with this company. I am simply sharing my experience.
Have fun and enjoy x
The unique protein and amino acid composition of SALMON is often overlooked in its nutritional profile. Salmon contains short protein molecules called peptides that have been shown to be bioactive and may have important anti-inflammatory properties. Salmon also provides important amounts of the antioxidant amino acid taurine. Salmon is an excellent source of vitamin B12, vitamin D and selenium. It is a good source of niacin, omega-3 fatty acids, protein, phosphorus and vitamin B6. It is also a good source of choline, pantothenic acid, biotin and potassium. SWEET POTATOES provide significant anti-oxidant support and have been shown to help with blood sugar regulation. They contain glycosides called batatosides which have been shown to have antibacterial and antifungal properties. Other research has also shown that sweet potatoes contain cyanidins and peonidins which may be able to lower the potential health risk posed by heavy metals. CELERIAC is a rich source of vitamin K, important in bone health and with every mouthful you get a good dose of phosphorous, iron, manganese as well as a host of B vitamins.
