i'm totally preaching to the choir on this one, yes it is very important to get your green on. late plug for st. patty's day? no, i'm not really up on that holiday, but i do love me some green food. pictured above was an accidental outfit matching made by me and my boy. i love showing him off, isn't he just gnawdorable? he is such a tank. i can't believe i've turned out to be one of those mothers who love to show off their kids. then again, my spouse and i didn't know we'd be the winners of such an amazing genetic crap shoot. no worries, this child will not be entering any baby beauty contests.
now for the avocados. i love them. lovey-lovey-love-love them. what a superfood! packed with all sorts of good fat, vitamins, and flavor these emeralds are what vin likes to call "nature's cheese". true dat. pictured above is a creamy avocado dressing i made with 2 avocados, lime juice, fresh parsley (about a cup of it chopped), 2 cloves of garlic, 1/4 c. chopped onion, sea salt, and a cup or so of water. i pureed it in the blender and kept it in the container with the seed. someone told me keeping the seed in guac or a dressing will keep the avocado green. i'm not sure if that is 100% fact, but my dressing was bright green for a few days. this stuff went really well with the tabbouleh pictured below:
tabbouleh is impossible to screw up. you just take soaked bulghur-(follow the instructions!), fresh parsley, mint-(optional, i didn't have it when i made this batch) olive oil, onions, cukes, tomatoes, and anything else that floats your boat. throw in some fresh lemon juice, sea salt, and ta-da--tabbouleh! i used the avocado dressing as a topping because i like my food topped with other food, but it is most certainly not a requirement.
what are your favorite green foods?
