Carrot brownie with soy drink
A delicious temptation to enjoy a whim with the family, ideal for breakfast or afternoon snack, or to serve dessert with guests. The secret of its juiciness and flavour lies in the organic carrot, which also adds fibre and vitamins, creating an irresistible crumb with just the right amount of sweetness.
Ingredients. 300 g organic carrot, 250 g Fairglobe organic dark chocolate, 200 ml Bio Milbona soya drink, 3 organic eggs, 100 g Belbake cane brown sugar, 90 g Belbake organic wheat flour, 2 g Belbake pastry yeast, 2 g salt.
Elaboration. We start by peeling the carrots and chopping them. Cook for 20 minutes, drain, crush and set aside. Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie with the soya drink and in a separate bowl assemble the eggs with the sugar until they double in volume. Pour the melted chocolate over the eggs, beating gently little by little. Sift the flour, yeast and salt and add it to the dough, mixing it with enveloping movements. Finally, add the crushed carrot, mix and pour into a rectangular cake mould lined with baking paper. Bake for 30 minutes at 190 ºC and leave to cool before serving.
Three delicious organic rice
A colourful Chinese inspired dish, already classic in many homes and very much liked by children, which can also be sustainable thanks to Lidl’s Bioproducts, such as Bio Golden Sun long grain rice. Perfect as a starter, as a side dish or as a complete, nutritious dinner.
Ingredients. 420 ml of water, salt, Bio Golden Sun long-grain rice, 3 organic eggs, 100 g of traditional Dulano cooked ham, 150 g of Ocean Sea cooked Greenland prawns, 100 g of Freshona peas, 80 g of Freshona organic sweet corn, Bio Ilosone extra virgin olive oil.
Elaboration. Cook the rice in boiling salted water for 13 minutes and set aside. Beat the eggs separately with a pinch of salt, cook a French omelette and cut into portions, which we reserve. Wash, peel and dice the carrots. Sauté them in a frying pan with olive oil until they are lightly cooked. Add the prawns and sauté to brown. Cut the cooked ham into small cubes and add it to the sautéed ham together with the peas and corn. Slightly sauté, add the rice and tortilla, stir briefly and serve.

The rise of the veggie world, the trend that came to stay
As the latest study “The Green Revolution” by the consulting firm Lantern points out, more and more people are turning vegetable products into the centre of their diet. Vegetarians and vegans are now joined by the flexitarian movement, people who reduce the consumption of meat and fish to a minimum, prioritizing foods of vegetable origin and even trying vegetable meat alternatives.
There is still the myth that a diet based on plant-based foods is boring or repetitive, but products like Lidl’s MyBestVeggie range prove otherwise. Adapting to changes in our lifestyles, this brand presents a wide variety of vegetarian and vegan products that offer many possibilities in the home kitchen. For example, the first yoghurts of vegetables and fruits or the range of vegan desserts are a very original option to give variety to our diet.
The veggie movement is far from giving up the pleasure of enjoying the table. The only limit is creativity. Thanks to the MyBestVeggie range of products, we can enjoy everything from a delicious omelette without eggs to a complete range of organic tofu preparations. For example, you can start your day with a nutritious breakfast with quinoa, chia and nuts and cook some Monsieur Cuisine lentils in the grandmother’s style but totally veggies.
Would you like a really original hamburger? Cheer up and surprise yourself with the beet and pumpkin burger recipe with a delicious, vegan avocado sauce. And in addition to enjoying a sweet treat with Lidl’s vegan desserts, it’s possible to make a vegan sponge cake with no animal products as a family.
