Yummy Yums!!

Guess what? I have a recipe for you! A real, honest-to-goodness recipe, that is super delicious! I created it out of nothing this evening, which is probably not what you would expect from someone who had been out of the house working for 10 1/2 hours and had to get packed and ready to catch a plane at 6.20am the following morning... but I was feeling more inspired to create than I have in a loooooong time. My parents are out, so I cranked up the radio and had a lovely relaxing un-cooking session, with wonderful results. I achieved exactly what I wanted to first time, which is always lovely in the kitchen!

I call it Glistening Green Fruit Medley (avocados, zucchinis, capsicum and tomatoes are all, botanically speaking, fruits).
Glistening Green Sauce
1 large avocado
1/4 cup parsley
80 mLs of celery juice
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 large basil leaf
Fruit Medley
2 small yellow capsicum
1 1/2 punnets cherry tomatoes
1 spring onion
generous handful snow pea or sunflower sprouts
lots of fancy lettuce mix (aka mesclun)
1/2 a zucchini

To make the sauce combine all ingredients in a blender and blend till smooth.To make the medley, begin by thinly slicing the capsicum and spring onion; halve the cherry tomatoes, finely chop the lettuce and create zucchini noodles using a spiraliser. Add all ingredients to a large bowl and toss with sauce, then serve and enjoy slurpily!

As you can see, I took quite a number of artsy photos of this and while they are not perfect I really quite like them! Good considering the poor lighting, at least!

I'm sorry this has been such a short post but as I mentioned, I have a plane to catch early in the morning... my best friend in Adelaide just got engaged, and I'm flying back for the party to surprise her!!! Soooo exciting. I'll try to get back soon but meanwhile, enjoy life and eat your greens! :-P
