A few of you have been asking me for recipes, meal ideas, daily food menus etc. Here is a random dinner recipe. I am a very simple cook. I enjoy simple fresh foods and sometimes the less complicated the recipe the better it tastes for me. So most of the things I will post will be 5 minute recipes :)
This is a very simple recipe - salsa dip or dressing.
I was busy all day today and didn't have time to go shopping for food so dinner time comes and the fridge is empty. I had tomatoes, a few carrots, frozen veggies and kale. I have already gotten my calories from a ton of sapote fruit, cherimoyas and bananas today so dinner was light.
I made this ultra easy simple salsa dressing for my kale and steamed veggies.
Ingredients for the Salsa Dressing/Dip
White Pepper (Black will work)
Chipotle (Hot pepper would be fine)
A tbsp of Summer Savory (basil will be good)
On top I sprinkles lovage (basically a form of dried celery. You can substitute it for parsley, basil, cilantro)
Some almond milk (not sure if it's necessary but it added some creaminess) (Tahini would be great)
I would have added celery and a couple of dates, bell peppers and avocados... even fresh corn if I had any but my fridge was literally empty (this rarely happens around here) :)
Blend and Serve
Some hot sauce and mustard can be added.
I avoid adding salt and fat to my foods so there was some in the hot sauce and I left it at that. My taste buds seem to get used to low sodium meals quickly :)
I also keep my fats at around 5-15% of my total calorie intake so I keep things relatively low in fats and high in carbs :)
I loved the salsa and will definitely be making it again :)
