Beefsteak Recipe

Serves 2

You need:

  • 4 beefsteaks
  • 6 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

Beefsteak is the best when you cut it into thick slices, lightly tenderize it by hand and cover with olive oil in a bowl. It can be stored this way in your refrigerator for a few days.

When you want to cook it, heat olive oil in a frying pan and cook the steak for about 2 minutes each side for medium rare, or to taste. It shouldn't be cooked for more than 10 minutes.

When it is done, season with salt and pepper to taste.


Kale Recipe

Serves 2

You need:

  • 1 small bunch of kale, chopped into large pieces
  • 4 potatoes, chopped into large cubes
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tbsp salt
  • water
  • pepper to taste

Instructions:

Peel the potatoes and put them into a deep cooking pan with salt.

Add kale and pour water to fill about 2/3 of the cooking pan. Cook covered pan over low heat for about 20 minutes (or until kale turns soft).

Drain the water, add olive oil, garlic and season with pepper. Stir well.


Fruit

  • 3 tangerines
  • 4 almonds

Dinner

  • Mushrooms on onion with eggs and parsley

Mushroom Recipe

Serves 2

You need:

  • 1 kg/2.2 lb mushrooms, thinly slices
  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 1 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

Heat olive oil in a frying pan and saute the onion until softened.
