5 Tasty & Healthy Recipes with Fatty Acids

  1. Spicy seeded herb bread

You will need:

2 2/3 cups of almonds

3 cups of pumpkin seeds

A cup of sunflower seeds

2 ½ cups of brown rice flower

6 tbsp of psyllium husk powder

A tbsp of bread topping

A tbsp of garlic powder

A tbsp of fennel seeds

2 tsp of Himalayan salt

2 tsp of flaxseed

4 tbsp of chia seeds

5 cups of water

Preparation: First, blend the almonds and sunflower seeds in a food processor until you get a flour-like mixture. Transfer it in a bowl and add the other ingredients. Mix them well and then leave it like that for an hour so that the chia absorbs the water. In the meantime, preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and spray coconut oil on the pans. Divide the dough into two pans and bake them for 50 minutes or until golden. Take the pans out of the oven and leave the breads to cool down before slicing.

  1. Summer minestrone

A cup of pinto beans

Half a cup of plum tomatoes

2 tsp of balsamic vinegar

2 tbsp of fresh basil, chopped

¼ cup of parmesan cheese, grated (optional)

Preparation:  In a pot, heat the oil over medium-low heat and add the onion, a bit of salt, and stir for 2 minutes and then incorporate the tomato and a bit of salt. Continue cooking and stirring until the content reduces and thickens (around 10 minutes). Next, add the garlic and cook for additional 30 seconds before adding the thyme, greens, ¾ tsp of salt, and the water. Turn the heat to high and once the mixture begins to boil, lower the temperature to low and leave the content to simmer for 10 minutes. Then, add the veggies and cook them for 8 minutes or so. Remove the pot from the heat and add a tsp of balsamic vinegar and a bit of salt. When serving, spoon the minestrone into bowls for soup. Top them with some grated parmesan and enjoy.
