[advertisement] Broccoli dumplings with cucumber salad

This post is made in cooperation with use again.
We got a really nice snack for you. I mean when you are not at home and wanna eat something it has to be fast food, right? We don’t have any other options here, sadly.

Do you know what is really hard? Finding healthy and tasty meals to go. AT least where we live, you can only get kebabs, burger, fries and this stuff. But you can hardly find anything eatable even though it is not too hard to make something healthy. So we really depend on food we can take to work or uni. Since we wanna loose some more weight, we can’t eat the stuff you get to go. And we don’t want to. Usually we cook something the day before so we have some more time in the morning, because that is when time counts 😀

Did you find a perfect lunchbox yet? We always have the problem that they are either not the right size or they were leaking or something. So we were constantly looking for a better one. And finally we found one at use again.

Why we decided to have a cooperation with them? Well, they have a lot of brands and different kinds of lunch boxes. The customers are very happy with them, they are not too expensive and they care about recycling and environment protection. We didn’t decide to get one made of stainless steel, but they offer those. We didn’t like the looks too much so we decided to take a monbento box. This one is really great, you got enough space and doesn’t leak and looks great;) So, in case you still need a lunch box, take a look there.

What you need for broccoli dumplings:

For 8-10 dumplings

  • 1 kg broccoli
  • 3 spring onions
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp breadcrumbs
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • salt and pepper
  • Parmesan if you like

Cucumber salad

  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 onion
  • 2-3 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pinch of sugar
  • salt
  • some Feta cheese


  • 3 tbsp yoghurt
  • herbs of your choice
  • salt and pepper
  • some lemon juice

How to prepare the broccoli dumplings:


  1. Cut the cucumber in halves at the long side, get rid of the inside and cut it in slices, the onion as well and put them in a bowl. Add vinegar, oil, sugar and salt. Mix everything and let it rest so the taste evolves better. Add the Feta just later.
  2. Mix the yoghurt with chopped herbs, salt, pepper and lemon juice in a bowl. Cook the broccoli and use a cloth to get rid of all the water left inside. Then blend it with an egg, chopped spring onions, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  3. Now add the bread crumbs and form dumplings out of the dough. Fry those from both sides for about 5 minutes and enjoy them.
