A Gentle 3-Day Detox For Beginners: Lunch and Dinner Recipes.

vegetable soup

In our first post, Detox for beginners, I outlined the basic meal structure as well as some tips and tricks to make it easier. Here, you’ll find the recipes for lunch and dinner. Generally, the recipes are easy to make, are affordable, and also packed with nutrients and fiber.

A warm bowl of Mujadara is on the menu for all 3 days during the detox. Mujadara is a traditional Middle Eastern food that contains a mixture of rice, beans, and spices. It’s also high in protein, very easy to digest, and especially tasty.

Moreover, for this recipe, we will use mung bean sprouts instead of lentils. Mung beans are full of healthy nutrients. In fact, they are rich in minerals and vitamins and are also high in antioxidants that can help prevent diseases. Additionally, mung beans can help promote weight loss by raising the levels of the hormone that makes you feel full. As a result, you’ll eat less because you don’t feel hungry.

Materials

  • 1 cup brown or white basmati rice
  • 1 cup mung bean sprouts
  • 2 cups vegetables of choice: asparagus, broccoli, green beans, zucchini, celery, carrots, etc. sliced and roasted

  • tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Instructions

  • Soak the mung beans overnight in water. Drain and rinse, sprout them for one day or until the sprouts are 1 cm.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 °C.
  • Wash the rice until the water runs clear.
  • Place the vegetables on baking paper, and add salt, pepper and olive oil. Roast until soft.
  • Warm oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the rice and fry until completely dry and lightly roasted from the tips. Add 2 cups of water and let the mixture boil for some time. Put the lid on and turn the heat low.
  • Add spices and cook for 10 minutes on low heat and do not open the lid during this time. Once you’re done cooking, cover the container and let stand another 5 to 10 minutes.
  • In a medium-sized pot, place 1 cup mung beans and 3 cups of water. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until tender, about 20 minutes.
  • Peel the onions and slice thinly. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan placed over high heat and add the onions. Fry for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally with a slotted spoon, until the onion takes on a nice golden brown color and turns crispy onion.
  • Mix all the ingredients in a big bowl, and add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley.

Notes

In case you using whole rice, cooking time will be about 30 minutes.

Finally, for dinner during your 3 days detox will be one of two soups: a Vegan Vegetable Soup or warming Thai orange soup with fresh basil, coconut cream, and ginger. Keep in mind that the recipes are for multiple servings. You can even freeze leftovers to use for another time.
