….. what could be easier than this for a store cupboard snack or speedy meal.
As we are drawing to the end of the Easter holidays my meal repertoire is starting to waiver. I had this delicious lunch out with a friend last week and I though what a simple meal to throw together with all the things we have in our cupboard.
Take two slices of sourdough, lightly toasted, a tin of sardines in olive oil (oil drained off), a jar of caperberries, a bag of watercress or rocket, a splash of balsamic vinegar and some rock salt and hey presto a quick and easy light meal. You could even slather your toast with some mashed avocado for a delicious layer of creaminess and throw in a couple of sliced beetroot on the side too that’s what I did last night for dinner and it was delicious.
P.S. A bit about Sardines if you fancy.
They are packed with Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, Calcium and Selenium as well as other B vitamins, phosphorus, iodine, copper, choline and many more besides. All of these goodies contribute towards healthy bones, good heart health and because they are packed with protein and healthy fats they help to control bloody sugar levels and their EPA omega-3’s can boost brain function and enhance your mood too .
To top it all Sardines are one of the most sustainable and least contaminated fish sources. Because they are at the bottom of the oceans food chain and eat only plankton they are least likely to carry toxins and heavy metals from gobbling up other fish. By eating sardines you will be getting all the omega-3’s that you need without a mouth full of toxins to boot.
