There isn’t really any special magic behind this dish. I have been thinking whether to publish these simple recipes on my blog or not. These are our usual dinners I prepare during working days. They are healthy, quick, simple, with seasonal ingredients 90% of the time and I always try to balance them in terms of nutrients, protein, fiber or minerals your body needs. And of course, always gluten-free.

Balance your plate and get maximum from your food


When I cook something, I always try to balance it. This means to include whole foods, which are plant foods that are unprocessed and unrefined, or if they are, at a very minimum level. Then, I try to include legumes into dishes every single day for its protein, nutrients and minerals. Seasonal fresh vegetables and fruits are important for vitamins or antioxidants. At the same time, I am trying to balance also between cooked and fresh vegetables, so with every cooked meal I serve green salad and other fresh vegetable of different colour.

If this is something that interests you, you can read more about it. There are many books that explains the importance of ingredients and how they influence our body and health. I have been reading a book How not to die, from Michael Greger, very good in my opinion. Speaks about foods you should eat and avoid. Explains in details also why you should include legumes into your daily menu, for example. And this was my great wow-moment. It pushed me to start blogging and creating recipes only made with legumes.

This recipe is effortless and simple

This recipe is really so simple and absolutely effortless. You even do not need to peel the potatoes. Just wash them, cut them in half, put some salt, olive oil and thyme and bake it for half an hour approximately. You can buy the chickpea in a can, so there is no other work with cooking it at home either. When it comes to vegetables, just wash and cut them .

Once the potatoes are baked, take a knife or fork and push the potato from the centre to the sides, so you open it and create a space for the salad. Then you just place the rest of ingredients on it, put some drops of olive oil and your dinner is ready.
