I am back! Yes! And this time for good, promise! Please forgive my inexcusable absence, but with getting a puppy and moving once again to a foreign country I have been really busy in the last months.
Now I am settled back in to good old Sri Lanka (which actually is very new now what with end of the civil war, highway recently opened and a lot less rubbish flying around) and it is time to get back into nutrition and to presenting you my latest creations and/or tips.
I would like to start with something very simple, a platter of crudites with two excellent salsas (Cream of Avocado and Tomato Salsa), with also your healthy dosage of protein provided. This makes a light, easily prepared dinner and if you avoid having toasted bread with it (like we had...) you will just feel great and balanced after having enjoyed this platter.
You basically need for 4 persons any vegetables you love to eat raw like:
-1 cucumber, 1 carrot, 1 turnip, 100g champignons, 250g cherry tomatoes, 100g soy sprouts, 4 stalks celery, 1 bunch radishes and 2 hard boiled eggs
Further you need for the
Creme of Avocado
1 big mature avocado
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
4 tbsp yogurt
1/2 bunch dill/fennel herb
1 red chili
4 mature tomatoes
2 tbsp ground hazelnuts
1 tbsp vegetable oil of good quality
1/2 tsp sea salt
a small amount of pepper
1 tbsp red wine vinegar (I used Aceto Balsamico)
1 tbsp honey
a small amount of chili powder
Prepare the salsas, they both should be mixed in a blender. Arrange the raw vegetables nicely on a big platter, add the quartered eggs and serve everything together.
Enjoy! And I will be back very soon!
