I am currently working on adding a bit of fun to the blog so I thought to start sharing from time to time some videos instead of pics. We have filmed a lot of recipes lately and I will incorporate them very soon.
So for the first video reference tutorial I chose the Greek salad because let’s face it: who doesn’t love Feta cheese? There are billion of ways to make this salad out there but I did stick to my mom’s recipe and this is the way I now make it at home.
Ingredients (serves 2) :
-1 cup sliced cucumber
-2 cups cherry tomatoes cut in half
-1/2 green pepper sliced
-1/2 red onion
-1 cup feta cheese
-1/4 cup olive oil
-1 tbsp. capers
-1 tbsp. oregano
-1/2 tsp. salt
Hope you guys enjoy! 🙂
If I had to choose my favorite Spanish dish it would be hands down: Gazpacho. I drink it all year-long even though it is a Spring/Summer recipe. There are tons of different ways to prepare this; some add bread, some use other colorful ingredients.
I have to say that with one arm (and one hand) it was quite challenging to pull the pictures off but I made my best effort. 🙂
Ingredients (serves 1):
- 3 cups chopped tomatoes (scoop all the seeds out)
- 1 cup chopped cucumber (peel and scoop the seeds out)
- 1/2 cup chopped onions
- 3/4 cup bell peppers (yup, once again all seeds out)
- 1 garlic head
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- Salt and pepper to taste
Blend all the ingredients until smooth. Depending on the consistency you desire you can either add water or keep it creamy. I personally prefer it half and half. Since I have a big problem with textures in creams, I strain it in a big hole strain to keep it extra smooth.
Normally you can garnish it with some diced peppers, tomatoes, onions and cucumbers but since I am not at the top of my chopping game right now, I kept it simple.
Let cool in the fridge for at least one hour before serving.
I crave pizza all the time. I have it from time to time but not as often as I would love to. I found many recipes to substitute normal crust with cauliflower crust and I told you guys I would try some of them in this post.
One small warning: your kitchen is going to smell nasty when you are boiling and draining the cauliflower…but it will be all worth it at the end!
Here is the recipe I followed from “Eat.Drink.Smile”.
I changed a little the toppings. I drained the cauliflower “rice” and put it in a clean cloth. You have to squeeze all the liquid out. I also didn’t use the microwave I just boiled my rice with enough water and a bit of salt. After many crusts gone wrong, I learned that it comes out pretty crunchy when you drain all the water from the cauliflower.
So let’s begin!
Instagram is by far my favorite app for sharing pictures. That been said, I also love to take pictures of what I am about to eat. Some people find this annoying, some do it too, both of them are valid points of view. I really like to eat colorful foods and I always try to make it a healthy choice.
Today I have selected my favorite “Instafood” pictures from my Instagram page to share with you.
