How are we doing this week Nerdie Foodies? Keep at that healthy kick with this week’s latest New Year, Nerd Fit blog post – the Triple S: Salads, sides, and soups. Let’s go and check out some nerdy, healthy options!
Erso Homestead Salad
Sometimes you just want to keep things super simple that involves absolutely no cooking – salad. Geeks Who Eat shares with us this Star Wars: Rogue One inspired recipe from the Erso family. Having a light dressing is everything when it comes to keeping salads on the healthier side. This one fits the bill! Check out the recipe here!
Want a salad that has a bit more elegance, sophistication, and flare? The elves from Lord of the Rings have just the salad for that. Individual servings on endive leaves, filled with hazelnuts, pears, raisins and feta cheese topped with honey! Feast of Starlight shares with us this light and refreshing salad that’s all in one bite! Check out the recipe here!
Firefly’s Roasted Rosemary Tomatoes
This side dish is simple, and super easy to put together thanks to one Sheppard Book. The folks over at Simply Inspired Meals share with us their version of Book’s recipe. And if you don’t want to grill (indoor or outdoor), a quick roast or pan-fry could also do the trick. Check out the recipe here!
Foods of Skyrim: Tomato Soup
Tomato soup? Don’t mind if we do! This is such a classic. Even better, why not try to make your own and you can control how much salt content goes into the pot! Thanks to Rachael Whitaker (Instructables: Cooking) for sharing her Skyrim inspired tomato soup, which you can find the recipe here!
Eowyn’s Fish Soup
We love a hot soup for a cold day! And what better to boost that soup up with some Omega-3s than with a fish? Feast of Starlight shares with us their warm and hearty recipe that’s also packed with some delicious veggies! Check it out here!
