A simple and quick snack or as a side for anything grilled.

Melt butter. Add in either fresh or frozen peas. Toss around on high heat for 3-4 minutes. Its enough to start softening them. Add two tablespoons of finely chopped mint leaves. Mix and cook till the pea are as soft as you want them.

Done. Add in lemon juice if you like a little tangy kick.

After a very hectic weekend filled with some amazing fun in the sand, I wanted a simple lunch. In other words something that is quick to make and yummy to eat.

So a simple coleslaw with a minty twist.

Shredded cabbage and iceberg lettuce. Into the mixie when a lot of mint leaves, pepper, 2 green chilies, garlic and salt. Mixed into this some cream and mayonnaise. Combined everything. Check seasoning, add some more pepper powder for heat.

Boiled eggs bring in the proteins and fats to make it a filling lunch.

Enjoy a quick and yummy lunch at work.

Brown Rice with Mint and Olives.

Wash the rice but don’t soak it.
Saute thin slices of an onion in butter and oil.
Remove half and keep it for later. This helps with texture.

Add the rice and saute till the raw smell is gone.

Add water, mint, ginger and olives. Season with salt.

Pressure cook for two whistles on high and then let it continue on low heat for fifteen minutes.

Easy lunch box with a little extra kick of fiber.
