In the area of Naples, they make a delicious dish called ‘scarola stufata’.
It has a ton of olive oil and almost no protein but god if that’s delicious!
Even though the original is harder to make as tasty using less olive oil, I tried my best, with this recipe to recreate a very similar taste.
This recipe will add also a lot of fiber to your diet. In case you don’t know, endive is a vitamin powerhouse too!
In this dish, there are around 300g of endive which will give you around 900% of your daily intake of vitamin K!
Besides that, you get 120% of vitamin A and almost 100% of folate!
This is what I call eating healthy and delicious! It’s possible and this is what I’m trying to do with this project.
You know when you open your fridge and you can find just a couple of ingredients and get discouraged?
That’s what happened to me before making this recipe.
I opened my fridge and I just had chicken and cherry tomatoes.
On top of that, I wanted to make something quickly.
That inspired me to create this one-pot very simple and easy recipe which also takes 10-15 min to make.
This recipe is great for a meal-prep too since you can make it in advance, store in the fridge, and reheat before eating.
It’s very high in protein and so low-carb that even people on the ketogenic diet can make it.
The taste is completely unexpected: sweet from the cherry tomatoes, sour from the wine and garlic, and great savoriness from the chicken blend together to give you a unique mouth-watering experience.
This makes a great post-workout or dinner when you are looking to pack some muscle mass with an high-protein meal.
Besides being Keto, this recipe is also Paleo, Primal, LCHF, and ofc IIFYM.
If you want to add more carbs, pair this with some rice or (oven baked) potatoes fries.
About the wine: it doesn’t to be the expensive stuff. I truly buy the cheapest there is and, once opened, it can last in the fridge basically forever. You can use wine for a lot of recipes to make them even more delicious so it’s not a waste!
Now cauliflowers are cheap. What can I do with them besides the usual boring “cauliflower pizza”?
I wanted to make something low-carb even keto-friendly for my breakfast. Furthermore, I wanted a low calories high-protein keto breakfast which is quick, easy to make and right delicious.
As usual, I looked at my Italian background and came up with this incredibly delicious and easy keto breakfast recipe.
I love mackerel. But its smell doesn’t love my house so I rarely cooked it.
Until I stumbled upon this method to avoid it smelling the entire house when cooking it in a pan.
Simply put a bowl with white vinegar just next to the stove.
When I read it I thought of another mambo jumbo technique you can find plenty of on the internet. But, hey, white vinegar is super cheap so why not trying!
Because I was afraid that the smelly smoke would contaminate my softboxes diffusers, I didn’t film it, unfortunately. But I could take nice pics to put on the website as you can see.
Mackerel contains high amounts of omega3s which have an anabolic effect. This means that they can stimulate directly muscle protein synthesis which becomes synergistic with your workout.
Fatty fish cooked in a hot pan with olive oil is amazing because, when you sear it, the Maillard reaction takes place and the fish surface becomes super crunchy. Having the oil infused with garlic before searing the fish will infuse all that goodness into the fish.
Let me tell you what a match made in heaven is mackerel with olive oil, garlic, and lemon!
The parley then will completely remove the fishy taste creating a great balance with the lemon and all the other tastes.
I’m really proud of this simple yet succulent dish!
