7 Ways To Make Your Salad More Satisfying

7 Ways To Make Your Salad More Satisfying

Summer time means salad time! But are you bored of your standard green salad? Today we share our favourite ideas on how to bulk up your salad and make it more satisfying!

1. Warm veggies.

Roasted or sautéed red onions, sautéed kale, roasted capsicum or sautéed mushrooms will add flavour and texture to an otherwise boring salad.

2. A nutty grain/seed such as brown rice, quinoa or millet.

Adding 1/2 cup of whatever grain/seed you prefer will make a salad more satisfying to eat and will keep you full for longer. Slightly undercook for a chewy satisfying texture.

3. Dry roasted nuts.

Place raw nuts on an oven tray and place in the oven on 350F for 10 minutes to enhance their flavour. Walnuts, sliced almonds and cashews are our favourite, but you could always try pecans, pumpkin seeds and peanuts (especially for Asian inspired salads).

4. Beans.

Chickpeas, black beans, lentils and other legumes are easy to prepare and inexpensive. They are a great source of protein and taste delicious when flavoured with spices such as cumin or paprika.

5. Avocado.

Avocado adds a creaminess to a salad that takes it to the next level. Use 1/2 a ripe avocado and mash it up with some lemon and sea salt before adding it on top of your salad.

6. Herbs. 

Herbs such as cilantro, parsley, and basil not only add flavour to your salad, but also help to bulk it up and add a boost of nutrients. 

7. Eggs.

Boiled, fried or poached, an egg is a wonderful way to make your salad more substantial. Our favourite way to eat eggs is to soft boil them for 6 minutes so that the yolk is still gooey and that can act as a dressing.
