Vegetarian burger with quinoa, beetroot and mushroom patty, served with sweet potato fries.
So amazing, true hero’s.
What strength and courage!
Recently, every time I walk into a supermarket, I have started to get more and more interested in fruit and veggies section. Having been more active in distance running, I have read that a salad is a great way to replenish nutrients and re-hydrate! Then, just 2 months ago, I decided that I should make a simple salad at home a meal or two a week just to try out how it tastes. Now, somehow, I am converted.
Last night’s salad was dressed with the following: Sashimi Soya Sauce, Honey, balsamic vinegar, black pepper, parmesan cheese and extra virgin olive oil. I normally like it simple without the honey and cheese but I thought I’d try it since I’m still a beginner when it comes to making salad.
This dinner salad will feature butterhead lettuce, organic baby spinach, chard, mizuna, tatsol (all three in a bag labelled Asian Greens), organic cranberry raisins and red cherry tomatoes. I try to include at least one organic item in every salad.
I tend towards cooking the tomatoes because I read somewhere that cooking them changes chemical structures of some nutrients within which turns them beneficial, but I am still alright with taking them raw. I have marinated the tomatoes with salt and black pepper, combining them with honey and e.v. double-O, then I toss them in the oven for 5 minutes.
The tossed salad does not look appetizing because I’m such a philistine in doing this. I also do not have a suitable wide salad bowl to eat this from!
I have it with delicious organic corn cakes. Even my 20-month-old daughter loves these corn cakes, and she enjoys taking my food!
I have bought all produce from a widely accessible Singapore supermarket chain, NTUC Fair Price, of which some have a small organic section. I should be getting a salad spinner and a cheese grater from Ikea soon. And a lovely salad bowl.
Yummy veggie accompaniment! Red Honey toms tossed with e.v.o.o., soya sauce, black pepper and honey! I’m going try it with blackstrap the next time!
Baby spinach, wild rocket, cos lettuce and yellow cherry toms dressed in balsamic vinegar, e.v. olive oil, soya sauce and pepper! Dinner!
All the colours!
