I’m not good with the word “diet”. It seems to make me eat more of the rubbish foods that I should be avoiding. I still could do with losing a few pounds however, so after kick starting with the Slimfast 7 day starter kit, I am experimenting more with my food in the last couple of weeks and attempting to eat clean. Inspiration can be difficult when trying to think of new and different meals to cook. There are plenty of ideas in this book.
Eating clean generally means foods that are unprocessed. I love eating salmon and often have fillets in the freezer as I buy them in bulk and freeze them individually so I can have one when I want for lunches or dinners etc.
The recipe arose from ingredients I found in the fridge and cupboards, so this recipe could be adapted to suit your tastes and what you find in your own cupboards and fridge.
I chose to oven cook my salmon before adding it to the rest of the dish, however you could make this a one pot meal if you wanted and cook it all at the same time.
- 1/2 sweet potato diced
- handful mushrooms, sliced
- 1/4 head broccoli, cut into small florets
- handful of spinach leaves
- 1 salmon fillet
- 1tbsp soy sauce
- dash of olive oil
I began by sautéing my sweet potato chunks in olive oil. These don’t take too long to cook when they are chopped up into small pieces. My salmon fillet is cooking in the oven during this process.
After five minutes, add the broccoli florets and a tsp of soy sauce for liquid and flavour. If the pan becomes dry, add water to enable the vegetables to cook.
Once the broccoli and sweet potato are cooked to taste, add the mushrooms for two minutes before placing the mixture onto a bed of raw spinach on the plate. Add your cooked salmon fillet to the top of the vegetables and add the remaining soy sauce.
This was such an easy recipe to make and can be adapted in so many ways. Very good for you as well. Do you enjoy clean eating?
