During the coronavirus quarantine we want you to enjoy the recipes that the nutrition specialists of FC Barcelona prepare for our athletes, all adapted for you, and each one with a different objective. On this occasion we present a dish with a lot of greens, and very digestible. It will also fill you with energy, nutrients, and good spirits.

Lots of greens

The colour of its three main ingredients already tells us a lot. They are all very healthy, plant-based foods with high nutritional quality. They provide many phytonutrients, those organic components of plants that act as protectors in our body. The result, a very digestive dish, with low calorific intake, something that is especially necessary at the moment.

How this recipe nourishes you

To the benefits of its three vegetables; broccoli, onion and zucchini, we add a legume that, along with the previous three ingredients, provides a lot of fibre. Now that we are moving much less than before, it's essential to have correct intestinal transit, as well as to feed the good bacteria that inhabit our intestine.

  • Gives you power = complex carbohydrates from peas
  • Improve your agility and coordination = vitamins + minerals + antioxidants + folic acid (vegetables) + the powerful sulforaphanes of broccoli, even with anticancer power.
  • You gain strength = the super complete protein of the egg has all the essential amino acids to maintain your muscle mass.

Adapt it to your goal

Do you need more energy? Add potato or coconut milk and you'll get that, and with a creamier texture.

And also to your palate

Do you prefer it cold or warm? You can take it however you want, because its two versions are just as delicious and healthy.

Even less calories

If you want to make this dish even lighter, limit the oil, use fresh cheese and replace the peas with a green leafy vegetable, such as spinach.

Keep taking care of yourself. We want to be with you now, and when you return.
