Let me leave you a link in case you wonder what portuguese food looks like, in a way more unhealthy but totally delicious way :
What I have been eating! Lentils, healthy cookies, chickpeas, soup and a lot of fruit , portuguese fruit tastes soooo good!
O que tenho comido em Portugal, lentilhas, grao de bico, bolachinhas saudaveis, muita fruta e sopinha. ❤
For the soup : chop 4 potatoes, 2 big carrots, 2 garlic cloves 1 medium onion, salt, pepper and olive oil. Let it boil for 30 minutes and blend. In the mean time wash and chop 2 types of cabbage ( you can use kale and white cabbage for example), when the soup is blended add the greens and let it cook for a further 15 to 20m (depends on the thickness of the cabbage). I never peel potatoes or carrots just wash them very well.
For the chickpeas makes 4 good size meals : 800g of chickpeas (in a jar, already cooked) and 3 eggs. Boil in water and salt for 25m. Drain and take the skin out of the eggs and chop them. Dice a small onion (white), add chopped parsley and 3 tablespoons of olive oil, adjust the salt and add chili flakes or piri piri or black pepper. Mix everything together (very well until the eggs fall apart and tyhe yolk sticks to the chick peas) Add black olives on top and it’s done.
Soak lentils during the night, next day chop onion and garlic and cook it in olive oil, add tomatoes and courgetter and let it cook for a bit, add lentils and plenty of water with salt and chili flakes. Cook for 30 minutes or until soft.
