Today I made cauliflower curry!
I found a slice of mango and few cubes of pineapple in the fridge, so they went in the curry.
First I sautéed a chopped onion, 4 chopped garlic cloves and 1 chopped carrot in 2 TBS of light olive oil for about 3 minutes. After that I added 1/3 cup of water and let it simmer for 5 more minutes.
I added the cauliflower florets, curry powder, 1 thumb size piece of ginger grated, 1/2 tsp turmeric, 2 TBS sesame seeds, turned down the burner and cover for about 15-20 min until the cauliflower wass tender.
I added the pineapple, mango, 1 1/2 cups of coconut milk, salt,and the juice from half lemon and let it simmer for another 3-5 minutes.
Started my day with a smoothie. I used freshly cut pineapple (using my pineapple corer, it rendered about 1/4 cup of juice which I added to the smoothie), half an apple cored and peeled, half a banana, half a grapefruit, 1/2 cup frozen mango, one leaf of kale taken off the stem! I added 1/4 cup of water.
Snack time: made plantain chips today! In the microwave 3 min 30 sec.
I craved something sweet so I made quince sauce : peeled and cored two quinces, covered them with water, a dash of cinnamon, one lemon wedge, orange peel. Boil for about 30 min or until the quince is really soft. Added 2 Tbs of Splenda, drained the liquid and puréed the fruit in my Vitamix. Better than any apple sauce you have ever had!
What’s a quince? Here is a picture in case you don’t know what it looks like:
