Colourful recipes with a can of sardines

For the #kitchentakeover I wanted to come up with colorful, delicious and surprising recipes, but most of all I wanted to work with common ingredients that can be found in most homes at a time when buying food involves more risk-taking and calculated planning than ever. The result is two colorful recipes for lunch/brunch and lunch/dinner with one main ingredient: A CAN OF SARDINES with other common ingredients that can be easily substituted with those you have at home.
