This is one of those incredibly easy recipes that you can whip up in mere minutes but it tastes like you put a lot of effort into it. I often make this for breakfast, even on work days! Not only is it tasty but it looks beautiful and is nutritious. A wonderful way to start the day!
I don't know about where you are but here in Brooklyn it has been quite hot. There is just no way I was turning on the oven or the stove top last night. So the grill it was!
Being that it was a Saturday night, my fridge was down to the last of the week's groceries. I didn't have much but I did have some produce still. A nice big eggplant, couple of bell peppers, radishes, spring onion...and skewers were just the obvious choice to use them all up.
I've said it before and I will continue to say it again and again - I LOVE the bounty of fresh produce available at farmer's markets during the summer! Today I bought so many beautiful things...heirloom tomatoes, peaches, peppers, apricots...and of course the 2-in-1 treat of radishes with the greens still attached. Many people toss the leaves out not realizing they are edible and insanely delicious too!
What's worse than having a fever and sore throat? Having a fever and sore throat right in the middle of summer. Unfortunately this is my current situation. Usually I would baby myself with lots of hot tea and warm chicken noodle soup, but when it is 90 degrees outside those are kind of the last things I want.
When I'm sick I refuse to let it spoil eating food that I enjoy. I still have great food but make sure that it is something that will benefit me and help me feel better. So I decided to make myself a delicious smoothie that would be hydrating and full of all the vitamins I need to not just feel better but get better!
I'm Ali! Living it up in Brooklyn. I love cooking, baking, crafting, crocheting - you name it! Most of what I cook is healthy for you (and equally delicious) with the occasional "not-healthy" meal (but so worth it). My passion truly lies with inspiring others not only to cook at home but to try new foods in the process!
