Peter Minkoff brings us the Best Organic Sunday Dinner Recipes. These are simple and delicious; you’re going to love them.

Do you remember those major preparations for Sunday lunch in your family home? Few of us do something like that, but it seems that Sunday lunch is still firmly established as a time for family gathering. What about Sunday dinner, though? Then, I have to admit, that I myself am a little lazy. You know, I am waiting for this day for an entire week, hoping that I will be able to rest without doing anything other than cooking lunch.

Sunday Dinner Recipes

The Best Ideas for Simple Organic Meals

 

To make things even more difficult, I have made a firm decision to prepare healthy organic dishes for my family, so I have to consider many things when cooking. Although ordering a pepperoni pizza and watching TV would be the simplest option, I have found that there are many healthy and delicious meals which can be prepared in no time.

 

Here are some great ideas for your organic Sunday dinner.

Japanese Rice

Japanese Rice - Best Organic Sunday Dinner RecipesThis is such a simple meal that requires almost no time for the preparation and it is cooked in about 40 minutes. I prefer to use brown organic rice because it is very low in saturated fat and cholesterol.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup uncooked rice
  • 2 tbsp finely diced carrots
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1 ½ tbsp butter
  • ½ cup diced onion
  • 2 tbsp soya sauce
  • Salt and pepper

Preparation:

Cook the rice for about twenty minutes. Season with salt. Leave it to cool in the refrigerator. Scramble the eggs in a pan over medium heat. After the rice is cooled, add peas, carrots, onion and scrambled eggs and mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Melt the butter in a frying pan, add a dash of salt and pepper and soya sauce. Pour the rice mixture in the pan, and cook for 6 to 7 minutes. You can serve it in rolls.

Curried Coconut and Chickpea

Curried Coconut and Chickpea - Best Organic Sunday Dinner RecipesThis is actually my favorite recipe, because I am crazy about both chickpea because it is packed with magnesium, iron, phosphate, zinc, calcium and vitamin K, and it is delicious. I cook this meal using Honest To Goodness coconut oil, because I am sure that it is as healthy and natural as it gets.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups cooked and drained chickpeas
  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1 minced shallot
  • 4 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp curry
  • 1 tsp red chili flakes
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 ¼ tbsp coconut oil

Preparation:

Cook the cauliflower for 3 minutes. Heat the oil in a sauté pan on medium heat and add all the ingredients but the cauliflower, chickpeas and coconut milk and cook until everything is translucent. After, add the cauliflower and cook for another 3 minutes. Then add chickpeas, stir and cook for 3 minutes more and deglaze with coconut milk.

  • 1 ½ cups yogurt
  • 1 cup spinach
