As COVID-19 continues to make headlines, diners’ food preferences are shifting from “delicious meals” to “nutritious (and still delicious) food selections” to keep themselves healthy. The bad news is, many restaurants are facing a dip in dine-in profits. However, the good news is this could be the ideal time to focus your efforts on improving sales from your food delivery menu.
The fastest way to do so would be to offer Singaporeans more of what they’re already ordering through food delivery apps. Here are some nutritious recipes to consider adding to your delivery menu, so you can offer diners healthier choices that are perfect for everyone in the family.
Beetroot Black Fungus Salad with Citrus Segments and Garlic Broad Bean Dressing
This dish is a delicious source of vitamin C, B6, calcium, fibre and antioxidants thanks to its combination of beetroot, garlic, fruits and vegetables. Overall, the vitamins and minerals may help to lower the risk of heart disease. Calcium supports normal nerve and muscle function, and most importantly, selenium assists in maintaining the function of the immune system.
Snow Pear with Black Chicken Broth
This recipe takes a classic black chicken broth (often referred to as the “King of all Chinese soups”) and improves it with delicious snow pears, crunchy almonds, goji berries and more. The ingredients in this soup contain a healthy amount of unsaturated fats (i.e. good fats), as well as calcium, fibre and zinc – supporting the development of strong bones, good digestion and contributing to the functioning of the immune system, respectively.
