Smoothies

Today, we had lots of fun making a variety of cold fruit drinks called smoothies. We pureed banana, fruits, and juice into a slushy mixture bursting with natural flavor. By using frozen fruits, we managed to enjoy out-of-season fruits like blackberries, save time, and skip using ice (which dilutes the flavor of the drink and requires extra sweeteners). We also juiced oranges and tangerines to maximize freshness, flavor, and nutrition.

Here are the recipes.

Salads

Today, we prepared three salads. The first two salads had a potato, onion, mushroom, and cilantro base. One of the salads was dressed with a garlic and peppercorn vinaigrette. The other was dressed with a Thai sesame lime vinaigrette.

The third salad consisted of a mix of spring greens, several citrus fruits, strawberries, and cashew nuts. It was dressed with an orange sesame vinaigrette.

Tuscan Cabbage and Bean Soup (Ribollita)

Today, we prepared Ribollita, a hearty Italian soup. We paired Tuscan cabbage (aka lacinato kale, dino kale) with cannellini white kidney beans, supported by onions, celery, carrots, potatoes, and tomatoes. We finished the dish with Italian peasant bread, a splash of olive oil, and a sprinkling of parmesan cheese.

Here is the recipe.
