1. Broccoli, carrot, and walnut salad
Cut the broccoli into strands and cook in a saucepan with water and salt for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside. Peel the carrots, cut them into slices and add them to the broccoli. Prepare a vinaigrette with oil and lemon juice in a glass to dress the salad. Finally, cut a handful of walnuts and add them to the plate.
2. Spaghetti with scrambled eggs with mushrooms and shrimp
Boil the spaghetti in a saucepan. On the other hand, heat a frying pan with oil. Brown a rolled garlic. Add the mushrooms (which must first be washed and drained) and fry for 10 minutes. Add the peeled shrimp and sauté. Add the beaten eggs. To make it look like a jumble and not a French omelette, remove the pan from the heat and stir the mixture to cook the egg well.
3. Lentil salad with pumpkin, hummus and almonds
Drain a pan of lentils, pour the water and set aside in a bowl. Cut and cook the pumpkin and mix it with the lentils. Chop a handful of almonds and add them. Dress it with salt and virgin olive oil. Also prepare the hummus. Once you have the desired texture, add a few tablespoons to the salad.
4. Quick vegetable broth
Clean and peel a variety of vegetables such as celery, carrots, leeks and turnips and cut them into small pieces. Brown the onion and leeks in a saucepan with a little oil until they are golden. Add the rest of the vegetables and sauté for 5 minutes. Stir in water and aromatic herbs such as thyme and bay leaf. Cook everything over low heat for 15 minutes. Once ready, filter it.
5. Chicken, vegetable and turmeric couscous
Brown a well chopped onion in the pan until golden. Add the green pepper, zucchini and a minced chicken breast. Do it all for 15 minutes. However, bring 250 ml of water to a boil with a drizzle of oil and salt. When the water boils, remove the container from the heat and pour 250 g of couscous. Stir and let stand for 3 minutes. Add a small tablespoon of butter and return the bowl to low heat for 2-3 minutes, stir the couscous with a fork. Add the chicken and sautéed vegetables to the couscous and season the dish with a teaspoon of turmeric.

When ready, make a base with lentils and vegetables and place the salmon on it.
