Though non-vegetarian food is considered a rich source of protein, this debate well suits the non-vegetarians because they are aware with the richness of non-vegetarian food – yes, with all consideration on good health and good environment, no doubt.
But, what if one wants to indulge in protein-rich vegetarian meal – I selected two recipes from my blog: masalahealth.wordpress.com for my Protein-Rich, Antioxidant-Rich, Vegetarian Luxurious Meal:
On why do I consider these recipes antioxidant-rich – in these two recipes, I have made extremely good use of whole spices for flavour and for its medicinal properties, this time while making these two recipes, I avoided the use of chilli powder which I had made use of in the earlier creations, instead I opted for dried red chilli. Whole Spices are abundant with variety of antioxidants, however one cannot include all of the whole spices in one recipe to make the food antioxidant-rich, the use of whole spices in food has to blend with the flavour of the main ingredient/ingredients and also match with the flavour of other ingredients in a recipe. These two recipes are the perfect examples to create flavour-rich and antioxidant-rich food.
Garbanzo Beans and Soy Meat are not only a vegetarian source of protein-rich foods but is also nutrient abundant foods.
Thus these two recipes were the perfect combination for my luxurious meal.
On why do I consider these two foods ‘Garbanzo Beans & Soy Meat’ luxurious commodity, because to everyone’s knowledge these two foods are available for relatively low price – it is the nutrient factor and my recipes which makes them so.
The speciality of this meal – this meal with kabuli chana & soy meat is an all season meal, this nutritious meal can be enjoyed despite the weather being warm or cold on any particular day – the blend of ingredients in these two food recipes makes it worthy.
No argument, when you indulge in this meal …
Recipes that make this Meal Luxurious:
Some notable changes made – I added a dried red chilli for mild-pungent flavour because it is much better an option than adding chilli powder, this time while adding kasuri methi/dried fenugreek leaves to the food – I soaked kasuri methi in warm water for approx.15 minutes, rinsed it with cold water before adding it to the curry. RECIPE
Some relevant changes made – I used coconut oil and opted out of adding chilli or chilli powder (which was used in the earlier recipe because I did not found it relevant); coconut oil along with coconut meat only enhances the flavour of food for better. RECIPE
It takes approx. 2 hours for preparation of this meal, but it is worth the time for making a luxurious meal out of two easily affordable foods.
WISHING YOU A GREAT DAY
