“Why don’t you make a meal out of just the top 10 superfoods?” asked my good friend, Ruth. I had just told her about the article I’d read about the top 10 superfoods and all the nutritional benefits they contain.
Ruth’s idea sounded appealing! I’d already copied down the top 10 superfoods in order to make sure I incorporated them into my shopping list.
All I needed to do was check my list and figure out what I could make!
My Top 10 Superfoods Menu
I perused my list of top 10 superfood ingredients and I was sure I could make something really tasty and nutritious.
So here’s what I came up with!
Top 10 Superfood Salad
- Spinach – Slice into thin shreds
- Watercress – Chopped finely
- Carrots – Julienne or grate
- Dandelion – Tear or chop into course
- Cabbage – Chopped coarsely
- Broccoli – Cut crown tops off stalk
- Kale – Slice into thin shreds
- 1 cup fresh lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 8 cloves crushed garlic
- 1/2 cup good olive oil.
Dressing can be stored for several weeks in refrigerator.
Prepare above ingredients according to your taste buds and the volume of salad desired.
Transfer greens to serving bowls and drizzle dressing onto greens a teaspoon at a time.
Add some grape tomatoes, and you are good to go.
Top 10 Superfoods Main Course
- Beans or Lentils – Your choice!
- Onions – Chopped
Add beans, 1 cup water, and onions to slow cooker and turn on high.
Cook for at least 4 hours, or until tender.
Add chopped green pepper, 1 cup chopped celery, garlic, cumin, salt, and a 14-ounce can of stewed tomatoes.
When done, spoon into bowls and top with chopped cilantro or fresh parsley.
Top 10 Superfoods Fruit Dessert
- Kiwi – Peel & slice
- Cherries – Pit & halve
- Guavas – Peel & chunk
Add all ripe prepared fruits to a medium size bowl.
Mix well and transfer to serving dishes.
You can add other fruits if you like, but you must have at least these three.
Top with a dollop of plain yogurt and ½ ounce chopped pistachio nuts.
P.S. – I noticed that there are many other lists of 10 top superfoods available, so pick the one you like, and try making one meal of as many superfoods as you can.
I had a lot of fun with this. And I venture to say your own recipes for your 10 top superfoods in one meal, would be a great addition to your family cookbook or recipe box!
