My friend (you know who you are **wink**) came up with a couple of awesome new recipes I wanted to share with everyone. She got pretty adventurous with one of them with it calling for tomatoes and everything. Now that, to a normal person, wouldn't sound at all off kilter. To me, however, someone who can walk into the kitchen at work 2 hours after someone cut a tomato and gag fiercely, this recipe was terrifying to my taste buds.
So in the meantime of waiting for me to try the scary tomato recipe, she came up with ANOTHER one that is by FAR the best juice I've had (still didn't add any vodka...but this is the one that would get it!!). That particular recipe is as follows:
The Breeze - due to the ease of making it, and it tastes all tropically
- Half a pineapple
- 2 big oranges
- Handful of fresh Basil
HOLY!!! This drink is good!!!! DH was gone for a long time, and I couldn't wait to make it for him when he got home (after eating cuy on his trip - I'll wait for everyone to google that, gag fiercely, and come back). He loved it too, and suggested that you could use mint if you didn't have basil - or wanted to try it. We haven't done it yet, but plan to. But I really like the basil.
So after The Breeze was so good, I figured the other one couldn't hurt me. The list of her ingredients look perfectly normal and harmonious....but to me those letters that form the red word....ugh. I don't think I've ever bought a tomato on purpose, but I did it. I arranged the myriad of produce, and began juicing my little black heart out. I would consider this juice a "meal" juice. It is very satisfying, and filling. It's savory, and really wonderful. I just said that out loud (with my fingers.) No one was more surprised than I was! My sister-in-law has been making it every morning for her DH since I tried it (she let me be her cuy)...which I don't know that I could drink this in the morning since in my mind, it is a dinner juice....but that's just me. I'm a neurotic juicer.
Without further ado.....I present to you:
Soup in a Glass - this makes a LOT
- 2 garlic cloves (if you really like garlic, use 3)
- 2 kale stalks
- big handful of spinach
- 3 leaves of leafy lettuce
- 1/4 cup red onion
- 5 or 6 roma tomatoes
- 1 apple
- 1/2 a lemon
- 2 stalks celery
- 12 baby carrots (or 3-4 large adult ones)
- 1 green pepper
- 1/2 jalapeno (no seeds) (I didn't have this and I was so sad :( )
- big handful of parsley
- handful of cilantro
- 1/4 cup chives (I didn't have this either)
- large pinch of oregano (be careful with this - its strong)
- medium handful of basil
So all you new juicers, try these two new recipes - and learn like I did
that tomatoes are almost our friends!!!
