Most of us would admit to adding extra cloves of garlic, than what the recipe recommends. Onions too are a key ingredient when it comes to most of the savoury dishes. These two magical gifts to the food world instantly add a zing to any dish. Apparently, they’re good for more than one reason. It’s not just their taste, but they have some amazing nutritional benefits.

Onion and garlic are rich in iron and zinc, two nutrients that people often miss out on when it comes to healthy living. Zinc helps your immune system perform better, while iron is essential for producing haemoglobin in blood. Here are 3 interesting dishes that include onion and garlic, as suggested by Emily Laurence:

Healthy salmon corn chowder

This one is an amazing take on the classical Mediterranean dish. It contains a lot of vegetables that are rich in anti-oxidants. Plus, salmon is a good source for healthy fats and proteins. Also, this dish is packed with flavours of onions and garlic, and is absolutely scrumptious.

Light Italian minestrone soup

This popular soup is the perfect dish if you’re looking for something light, tasty, and healthy. Onions and garlic are one of the key ingredients, apart from leeks, which are low on sodium and cholesterol. A must-try dish for weight conscious people.

Creamy pesto and roasted veggies

Add some punch to your quinoa by adding pesto paste made from onions and garlic. Make sure you have a lot of greens in there, to make the most of this healthy dish. Pesto gives a nice flavour to quinoa, which is filled with protein and is gluten-free.
