Fulda is ready #healthylunch #beetroot |

This is a recipe that neither myself, Hauke or Kat can take any credit for at all.

It’s a favourite recipe of Jansen’s – the chef of our ebooks, Breakfast in Six and Lunch in Six. Both books are based around quick, easy and tasty exclusive recipes using six or less ingredients.

If you haven’t seen them yet, do make sure you check them out if easy meals is your thing.

Normally this recipe would be in Lunch in Six, but as it has too many ingredients we needed to find a new home for it. And that home dear reader, is right here on the blog.

The rest of the criteria fits well – it’s quick, creative and easy – as well as very tasty indeed. It also packs a solid nutritional punch, which is always a positive.

You may or may not be wondering about the name, so I’ll just assume it’s the former and tell you about it anyway 😉

Fabulous Fulda

Jansen first tried this dish (or something very similar) when he was visiting Berlin.

He loved the ingredient combos but felt it could be improved overall. Intrigued, and never one to shy from a chef’s challenge, Jansen decided to take it to the next level.

Returning to his own town of Fulda, and with a few successful changes, he cooked it up to test on his brother and family. It was very well-received, and the Fabulous Fulda was born.

What’s on a Fulda, anyway?

Jansen tends towards naan bread (an Indian-style flatbread) as the basis for his Fabulous Fulda, but you can use just about any thick, soft bread that you can get your hands on.

After that comes a base of sliced beetroot and tomato mixed with spring onions and feta cheese. Add some hummus, herbs and a simple but refreshing side dip and you’ve got one really tasty lunch!

Sunflower seeds can also be added to the top for some crunch (as well as vitamin E and many other nutrients!).

You can also add some dukkah for an extra burst of flavour if you happen to have some. It only takes a couple of minutes to make.

This is a quick lunch idea that offers up something totally different to the standard fare. If you’ve been looking to improve your lunch life easily, then the Fabulous Fulda is the right way to do it.

Don’t forget to check out Lunch In Six, too!
