Holiday’s over and this means most of us are back to the daily grind—kids at school and adults at work. Days are doubly challenging for parents who are always rushing from one thing to the next without any time to rest. On busy days when moms and dads can only spare a couple minutes to prepare healthy and filling meals, Turkish appliances brand Beko shares these recipes:
Chicken and Spinach Wrap (Cooking time: 15 min. | Serves: 1)
1 pc. wrap
1 pc. hard boiled egg
100g roast chicken
50g raw spinach
½ slice avocado
1 pc. tomato
50g rocket sesame seeds
salt and cayenne
Take a large tortilla then flake the chicken inside the tortilla.
Slice the avocado, hard boiled egg, and tomato.
Cut the spinach leaves into pieces.
Place all ingredients inside the wrap. Roll.
Season with sesame seeds, salt, and cayenne as desired.
Veggie Nuggets (Cooking time: 25 min. | Serves: 2)

225g broccoli ï¬‚orets
1 clove garlic
2 pcs. eggs
125g breadcrumbs, divided
100g shredded cheddar cheese
1g onion powder
10g canola oil
Shred carrots. Stem broccoli until tender.
Place shredded carrots, steamed broccoli, garlic, eggs, 1 cup of breadcrumbs, cheese, and onion powder in food processor and pulse for 15 seconds until well combined.

Form mixture into balls. Flatten slightly into round discs.
Place remaining breadcrumbs on a shallow dish. Coat each nugget with breadcrumbs.
Heat oil in a skillet on medium high heat. Arrange nuggets in the skillet and cook about 3-4 minutes each side until golden brown and crispy.
