Everybody likes quick and easy lunch! If you like to have it healthy you will like my suggestion! Check my recipe for lunch that you can prepare in 20 minutes! Exactly, only 20 minutes and then you can enjoy it or pack to your lunch-box and have it following day at the office ☺
- 50 grams buckwheat (dry)
- 150 grams pork loin or tenderloin
- Half-bunch asparagus
- 2 cloves of garlic (or more, I like it spicy! 🙂 )
- 1 small onion
- Black pepper
- Chili powder
- Himalayan salt
- Coconut oil extra virgin (1 tablespoon)
- Olive oil extra virgin (1 teaspoon)
- Balsamic vinegar (1-2 teaspoons)
Rinse buckwheat under water before cooking it. Bring around 120ml of water to boil, add salt and buckwheat, stir, cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until the water get absorbed.
In the meanwhile prepare your meat and veggies:
Chop onion and rinse pork under water, cut it into 2-3 thin slices. Sprinkle salt, herbs, pepper and vinegar on each side of them. Rub the condiments into it (ideally would be if you marinate pork 1-2 days before. You can prepare bigger amount also and then cook it when you need it. Soused meat will be even tastier!).
Place a saucepan on the stove and heat it for about a minute or two until it is hot enough. Grease it with a coconut oil. Wait until the oil has melted and add chopped onion, once they get a little bit color add the slices of prepared pork. Fry for about 6-8 minutes on each side, once meat get crispy outside. While the first side of meat is being cooked, place another saucepan on the stove to grill asparagus. Again, grease it with coconut oil and wait until it is hot. Wash asparagus and snap off its woody ends before cooking! Simply take the end of the asparagus between your thumb and forefinger and bend until it breaks. Now they are ready to sauté. Put equally sized spears in hot pan greased with coconut oil, add chopped garlic, salt and pepper. They should be tender-crisp in just one or two minutes!
By the time, buckwheat should be already cooked so fried meat should be. Serve it on your plate and sprinkle with olive oil.
Bon apetite :)!
