How to make a healthy Dutch kapsalon

Kapsalon (as we Dutchies know) is one of the most fattest fast food meals in Holland. It contains about 1800 calories per portion! Quite shocking if you ask me. Keep that in mind when you end up hungry in a snack bar after a night out. 😉

Luckily I invented a healthier (In Love With Health proof) Kapsalon! Instead of potato fries, I make fries of kohlrabi because this root vegetable relieves stomach and intestinal complaints and it’s packed with vitamins B, C and E, iron, potassium and calcium. Besides that, it’s rich in fibre and thus keeps the blood sugar level low. It also stimulates the kidneys, whereby waste materials will be removed faster.

Add some skinny chicken shawarma, lettuce, and home made garlic sauce made of yoghurt and voila, there is your healthy ‘kapsalon’. Enjoy!

THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED (1 PERSON)

  • 125 gram chicken strips
  • 1 paprika
  • 1 tablespoon shawarma herbs
  • 100 gram iceberg lettuce
  • 250 gram precut kohlrabi
  • garlic powder
  • 150 gram goat yoghurt (or normal yoghurt)
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chives
  • salt and pepper

HOW TO MAKE IT

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Cover a baking tray with baking paper and sprinkle the kohlrabi fries with some salt, pepper and garlic powder. Bake for 45 minutes until crispy. Note: toss the fries every now and then.

Heat a pan with coconut or olive oil and bake the chicken strips. Cut the paprika in small pieces and add them to the chicken after 5 minutes along with the shawarma herbs and ½ teaspoon salt.

Lastly, chop the garlic and mix it together with the yoghurt, pepper, salt and chives.
Now all the components are ready and you can start to build your ‘kapsalon’.  As it should: first the fries, after that the chicken shawarma, on top of that the shredded lettuce and finish it with some garlic sauce. Yummmm 😀
