You got drinks and dessert first; now here are some dinners.
A few days ago I roasted some beets so that they wouldn't go bad and yesterday night, I used this recipe to make a really delicious and out-of-the-ordinary salad for dinner.
Roast beet, grapefruit, and avocado in a mustard-lemon dressing over spinach (to make it a fuller meal.) This was really delicious, a nice change of pace, and surprisingly filling. Also, a great way to use grapefruit which I enjoy a lot but rarely think to buy.
And tonight's dinner:
All raw and another super-filling meal without being heavy. Kale salad with avocado, onion, tomato, and cucumber. On the side is Jennifer Cornbleet's raw zucchini hummus with Two Moms in the Raw Garden Herb Sea crackers.
They were an interesting purchase. They aren't bad, but they're a little heavy on the rosemary (which I've noticed to be a trend in gluten-free crackers. I tried some Mary's Gone Crackers a while back and was overwhelmed by the rosemary flavor.) I also didn't realize the "Sea" in the flavor when I bought them so I was a little surprised to taste a slight "sea-y" flavor from the kombu in the ingredients. Like I said, they aren't bad and they were perfect dipped in the hummus, which is all I really wanted. I would say I'd be interested to try other flavors but for $6 a bag, it isn't worth it; there are raw cracker recipes I can make at home!
One note on the hummus...I ate the kale salad first and left the hummus on the table. Before I could get to it, my cat jumped on the table to sniff at it, slipped, and fell, putting her paw right in the hummus! She then proceeded to dart out of the room, leaving zucchini hummus-y footprints on the table. What a dope.
What a cute dope.
