This is a simple healthy recipe I made for dinner tonight. Have been quite busy and pregnant-tired, I still cook sometimes, but more of simple foods that I can eat :-) Perhaps I shall add in some healthy recipes to cook during pregnancy in here..
Recipe:: Sardines with Mixed Vegetables
1 small can of sardines, including the tomato juice
1/4 carrot, thinly chopped
6 cherry tomatoes, halved
1/3 of a large red bell pepper (capsicum), roughly chopped
1/3 of a celery stick, thinly sliced
1 small red onion, chopped
1 green chili, sliced
1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
dash of black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
Easy and does not take much time.. heat up the pan with olive and fry the onions, tomatoes, carrots and celery until soften. Add the sardines along with its tomato juice. Throw in the rest of the ingredients in and stir, breaking the sardines to smaller pieces (don't totally mash them tho).
Serve while still hot with brown bread and a glass of cool juice.
Sardines are very rich in iron, whilst the fresh tomatoes, celery, carrots and red pepper adds all the vitamins that is soo good to help our body absorb the iron. Not to mention this dinner is low in fat! :-)
