“Food is an important part of a balanced diet” – Fran Lebowitz

No matter how busy you are, make it a habit to eat only wholesome, nutritious meals that enrich your body as well as your mind. When this becomes routine, you’ll notice that your health worries and weight issues cease to exist. Contrary to widespread belief, nourishing meals need not always be elaborate. Today, good health is available in convenient cans in your local grocery, and all you need to cook delicious meals using just a few ingredients is your imagination. Here are five nimble recipes that use only five ingredients to dish up nutritious meals.

Appetizer

Meatballs in Spaghetti Nests

All you’ll need for this enticing dish is spaghetti, Beetnik organic meatballs (cooked), grated parmesan cheese, Beetnik Ragu Alla Bolognese sauce and eggs.

Toss the frozen meatballs into your preheated oven to warm them up till you cook the spaghetti. Boil water in a large pot, adding salt and a spoon of olive oil. Toss in the spaghetti and cook for about seven minutes till you have firmly cooked spaghetti, not soft. Keep in refrigerator to cool. Beat two eggs. Once cooled, take muffin liners spray with oil, and with the help of a fork, twirl the spaghetti into the liner to form a neat nest. Spoon in some egg, parmesan cheese, one meatball and layer it with the Bolognese sauce. Add some cheese to layer the sauce and bake the nests in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes. Allow cooling before transferring to a serving plate.

Grilled Ham and Mango Quesadillas

Prepare this delectable starter in less than ten minutes with organic ham, cottage cheese, mango chutney, green onions and multigrain tortillas.

First, prepare the grill. Then layer the tortilla bread with mango chutney, arrange the organic ham green onions and cottage cheese over the chutney and wrap the tortillas. Spray with cooking oil and grill the bread evenly on both sides for 2 – 3 minutes till the cheese melts. Serve hot.

Main Course

Swedish Meatballs

This dish is exquisite yet easy. Just combine grass-fed beef meatballs with a 10-ounce can of chicken or mushroom soup, a half cup of milk and a pinch of nutmeg in a large skillet. Bring this to a boil and then simmer for about 20 minutes. Add in sour cream and let it simmer for a couple of minutes before you transfer to a serving dish.

You can customize this simple dish with your creativity – add instant coffee for an authentic Swedish experience, or enhance the dish by adding uncooked egg noodles along with the other ingredients.

Honey and Garlic-Coated Wild Caught Salmon

Though simple, this dish bursts with hidden flavors and can turn out to be your favorite. Whip up a sauce with 1 teaspoon of pounded garlic, ½ teaspoon chopped ginger, 2 tablespoon soy sauce and 4 tablespoons of honey. You will need 2 wild-caught salmon fillets, skin on. Marinate the salmon in this mix for 30 minutes. Reserve a part of the sauce after marinating. Bake the sauce-infused salmon at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes. While the salmon’s getting cooked, boil the sauce till it reduces, about five minutes. After the salmon’s done, daub the reduced sauce over the dish and serve.

Velvety Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken

A winning recipe that’s sure to bring you praise but is very easy to make. The only ingredients you’ll need for this velvety sun-dried tomato chicken are organic chicken breasts and thighs, sun-dried tomato vinaigrette, crushed pepper, fresh basil and juicy, sun-dried tomatoes.

Spray oil in a baking dish, place chicken pieces evenly and layer dressing over the chicken. Season with crushed pepper and salt. Bake for one hour at 400 degrees. Once done, layer with juicy sun-dried tomatoes and basil.
