N.B. I recommend sifting the ricotta before adding it to the bowl. If the cake takes too much color on the surface, put a sheet of aluminum foil on the top shelf of the oven to prevent it from burning.

It can be stored for a couple of days under a glass bell (in winter) while in summer it is preferable to keep the dessert in the fridge.

6 healthy foods that should not be missing at the table Quick and easy recipe – Gordon Ramsay’s version

6 healthy foods that should not be missing at the table: Almost all diets (or diets) have foods to avoid: some legumes, dairy products, bread, pasta and various sugars, but there are also foods recommended in almost all diets. So instead of dwelling on the "ban" it is appropriate to focus on healthy foods and live the various meals of the day as an opportunity to give the body something that is really good for it. The trick of the most successful diets is to know the foods that are really good for us, to make them appetizing and to use cooking methods that leave their properties as unaltered as possible.

ALWAYS REMEMBER TO ...

  • I'd rather Whole grains avoiding the refined ones and choosing only wholemeal ones, thus avoiding glycemic peaks and prolonging the sense of satiety of the meal.
  • I would choose fresh foods so as not to lose the vitamins and all the properties present in the food.
  • Prefer the steaming sweeter and with lower temperatures, it avoids losing the properties of food (suitable for vegetables). Or the baking in foil (in the oven) suitable for cooking meat, fish and vegetables.
  • Make various snacks (healthy!) during the day to avoid arriving at main meals with an excessive sense of hunger and to keep the metabolism always active.

FOODS THAT SHOULD NOT BE MISSING:

1. GREEN LEAF VEGETABLES

The Mediterranean diet is rich in green leafy vegetables (spinach, kale, chard, dandelion leaves) and for good reason: not only are they a non-starchy vegetable (ideal for low-carb diets), but they are full of important vitamins and minerals such as vitamins C, A and K, as well as iron.

Try these vegetables with steam cooking so as not to lose all these precious elements!

2. AVOCADO

Avocado is rich in monounsaturated fats (MUFA) associated with cardiovascular health. Plus, it's a surprisingly good source of fiber, nearly 7 grams per half fruit! It is rich in magnesium and potassium, both of which help in regulating blood pressure. Avocado provides more magnesium than twenty other types of fruit, including banana, kiwi and strawberry. According to research, when avocado is added to salad, the absorption of beta-carotene in carrots increases almost 14 times, while that of alpha-carotene in lettuce increases by more than 4 times, when compared with the same salad without. of avocado.

3. SALMON

Salmon is a major source of omega-3 fatty acids that promote the heart by slowing the build-up of cholesterol in the arteries and improving blood pressure, according to the American Heart Association. The AHA recommends eating two Omega 3-rich fish meals per week. Prefer baking in foil

4. NUTS

People who regularly consume nuts are less likely to gain weight over a five-year period or to be overweight or obese, according to a study in the European Journal of Nutrition. Nuts occupy a special place in this category because they contain a type of omega-3 called alpha-linoleic acid (contained in very few foods: flax seeds, hemp seeds and walnuts). They are also a good way to eat more fiber and are rich in magnesium, which plays a key role in more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body.

5.OLIVE OIL

Olive oil is an important food in some of the most renowned diets including DASH and the Mediterranean diet. Fortunately, in Italy we regularly use olive oil, but it is important to choose an oil extra virgin olive oil with cold pressing in which all the precious properties present in the fruit are preserved, and that it is used as raw as possible on our dishes. Here are some of its properties: It lowers cholesterol levels, prevents cardiovascular disease, protects the liver, promotes digestion, regulates the intestine, nourishes the skin and scalp.

6.WOOD FRUITS

These fruits / berries are tasty, and can represent the "sweet moment" of our day, without guilt! In addition to having several cardiovascular benefits, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and strawberries are rich in polyphenols that are good for the heart, prevent aging, help lose weight, limit cholesterol, lower blood pressure (especially in menopause) and are a important source of folic acid.

How to prepare sausage and broccoli meatballs

  1. Chop the crumb and pass it to the mixer with the grated Grana.Togliamo the hardest stems to the broccoli and leave only the leaves and tops, wash them several times.
  2. Put 1 clove of garlic and 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil in a large pan, let the garlic brown and add the broccoli, at first they will create a lot of volume, let them stew by putting a lid on for 15 minutes. We shoot from time to time. At this point the broccoli are ready, remove the garlic and put them in a colander with a container underneath to remove the excess water.After about 10 minutes they will have lost almost all the water and have cooled down, chop them with a knife or with scissors like I did. Not in the mixer, they would become a cream and would not have a good consistency. Let's keep the broccoli aside.
  3. We remove the casings from the sausages, (N.B. in Naples the sausages are not made with minced meat, but "knife-tip" so the meat is roughly cut, in this case pass them to the mixer to grind them better).
  4. We combine all the ingredients in a container: broccoli, breadcrumbs, 1 egg, sausages and mix everything well.
  5. We proceed to form the meatballs, we also keep a saucer on the work surface with 2 eggs beaten with a pinch of salt inside, in another dish we put a few tablespoons of breadcrumbs. We dip the meatballs (with a flattened shape for better cooking) first in the beaten egg and then pass them in the grated bread. We fry in hot peanut oil, frying first on one side and then on the other. we serve hot
  6. For baking, just put the meatballs in a non-stick pan with a drizzle of oil on the bottom and a drizzle of oil on the meatballs. Cook at 190 degrees for 15 minutes, turning the meatballs halfway through cooking.
