EXPRESS RECIPE: CELERIAC SOUP (2 ingredients, 20 minutes)

Mar Rojo 19-Celeriac soup -lettersThis cream has a delicate but very special flavor, so it’s good choice as a side dish to a meat or a roast. The creamy consistency is very much like mashed potatoes, you wouldn’t believe how low in calories it is! More good news, celeriac is also rich in calcium, phosphorus, vitamin C and fiber, so it’s all advantages!

MANGO LASSI

 

marrojo19-mango-lassiHow could I not like mangos at all in the past, and now they are one of my favorite fruits? Do these things also happen to you?

These ones were especially good. They are from a friend’s orchard, and he explained to me that the amazing flavor they had, was not so much related to the fact that they are organic, but to the way he picks them up, little by little, when they are truly ripe and at their best.
On the other hand, those rocks that we buy at the supermarkets, are collected all at once, and then they are let to ripen in the fridges.

That, not only makes a BIG difference in taste, but also in the vitamins and nutrients.

I can’t remember who told me the story of some friends who had gone backpacking in Brazil, and to lengthen the trip, decided to sell chilled gazpacho on the beach. It seemed the perfect idea to them, and also to me! Who wouldn’t love a good chilled gazpacho at the beach? Well, it was a total failure, and I can’t understand why. This is why I’ll never become a successful business woman, I have the worst business vision.

DSC_0092This recipe is from my friend Natalia. Mine is never as delicious as hers, but still, Continue reading
