Zinc Infused Meal

Dear reader, I am editing this post here in June 2018 as it's worth re-circulating especially for the Wellness Wednesday linkup.  So I do not now have a lurgy. Miss 22 is now 23. She still cooks like mad and adapts recipes.  Happy wellness reading.  

Miss 22, Mr automotive 26 engineer are recovering from a lurgy.  Mr Him had a lurgy.  They are all determined that I shouldn't get a lurgy  (given my last episode and out of this worldliness that occurred.)  Miss 22 decided we needed immune boosting food.  She Googled and shopped.  She chopped and sautéed.  She stirred and seasoned.  She served zinc and vitamin C.

It was lovely. 

Her research prompted her to invent the following zinc packed meal .

Minced beef 500g
1 onion
Garlic to taste (2 cloves I think she used )
1 green pepper for flavour
Pumpkin seeds  (1 cup )
Can of kidney beans
Can of chickpeas
Chilli flakes and thyme to add flavour

Sauté onion, garlic, pepper until softened.  Add beef and once cooked through she added mushrooms and the cans of beans and chickpeas and the flavouring.

She served it with brown rice (zinc) and raw spinach  (vit C)

Followed by an orange.

It was very tasty and served 4 of us. I certainly would have this again despite the fact that she worried that it wouldn't taste good.  She told us that it was a meal for nourishment.

  1. Please thank Miss 22 for this recipe on my behalf, Anna. I've been looking for ways to combine beans and chickpeas with beef mince would you believe? Like how this isn't tomato based either. Nice flavour change.

  2. What a healthy meal Anna!
    I love seeing zinc discussed for health benefits.
    Many people don't know what nutritional benefits are in the food they eat!
    Thank you for coming to the link up party!
