This rice, quinoa, apple and Iberian ham salad meets the requirements of healthy recipes with Jamón as it provides us with a set of essential nutrients for our body.
On the one hand, we choose wild rice in combination with quinoa, these foods not only provide us with macronutrients such as carbohydrates or proteins, but also contain minerals, vitamins and antioxidants, and of course, fiber. As a food of vegetable origin (which must be present in every dish) we choose the apple, a source of potassium and vitamins.
We add our star ingredient: Jamón ibérico. A great source of proteins and healthy fats, essential nutrients in a healthy and balanced diet. Also, add other vegetables such as green bell pepper or cherry tomatoes to complete the dish. The result: simply delicious! An irresistible contrast of flavors.
The base of the dish is fine green beans, which provide few calories to the body and are rich in vitamins, amino acids, minerals and fiber. On the other hand, we have the egg as a complement and we prepare it as a poached egg. This way of cooking is healthier than the typical fried egg since it does not need a single drop of oil because it is cooked in boiling water, and we still enjoy the liquid texture of the yolk, which fills the dish with flavor when it explodes. We love it.
Finally, we have our star ingredient: el jamón de bellota ibérico. A source of protein and healthy fats that will enrich the dish, maximizing the flavor. Also, remember that if you add ham to your recipes you can reduce its salt content, making it more heart-healthy!

You will love this broccoli omelette with Iberian ham shavings because it is an easy to prepare and very healthy recipe, made with egg whites, broccoli and ham shavings.

In our case, we add some shavings of Iberian ham to enhance the flavor to the dish and nutritionally, add a small proportion of healthy fats. We leave you here the step by step!
One of the advantages of this dish, besides the short preparation time, is its healthy and light properties. On the one hand, we have zucchini as a base, one of the recommended vegetables par excellence, thanks to its high water content, its antioxidant properties and its high vitamin content. We also have mushrooms, a satiating food rich in minerals such as potassium or selenium and capable of flavoring endless recipes. The differential touch is provided by the shavings of Enrique Tomás Jamón ibérico together with the mature cheese, which with its powerful and distinctive flavor will round off the recipe. We show you the process!
The dish is based on an ingredient of vegetable origin such as artichoke, its high water content, fiber and inulin make it a positive product for digestion, fat burning and cholesterol control. Combining artichokes with other vegetables and healthy foods, such as fruits, vegetables or proteins is ideal. In this recipe we have chosen onion, garlic and diced jamón, as accompaniments. The ham provides the protein content to the dish and completes it nutritionally.
Creams are a safe bet for any lunch or dinner, as a main dish or as an accompaniment. In our case, we prepare it with seasoning and adding the Iberian ham on top, making it a very complete main dish. For the preparation of this classic recipe, we have chosen Jamón Ibérico Bellota Enrique Tomás. This way, we will achieve that contrast between sweet and salty, which diners like so much, as well as the combination of textures and the richness of nuances in the flavor.
We tend to associate eating a salad with something boring and out of obligation, and this is not the case at all. A salad can be very tasty and appetizing if you combine the ingredients in the best way.

And to top it off, we have Jamón Ibérico Bellota Premium Enrique Tomás our five-star ham, with which you will enjoy an incredible flavor in every bite. We add walnuts, hard-boiled egg and assorted lettuce, and that’s it, we tell you how to prepare it in the step by step!
