Okay so here is what I put together for lunch today, very simple, easy and fruity!! 8-1-1 friendly!!
Cucumber Pasta with Pointed pepper sauce
Firstly I prepared the Pasta
1 English Cucumber
Using veggie peeler made into long pasta strips
Popped this into a bowl, added 2 spoons of ume-- you can use raw soy sauce or whatever you fancy.
Also put in 2 sprigs of mint--fresh from my plant!
1 spoon of home-made garlic sea salt
Left on the counter top, the salt will draw the water out of the cucumber and give them a nice pasta like texture!
Now for the salad/sauce
Shredded up 1 romaine lettuce
for the sauce/dressing
2 Sweet pointed peppers
1 Lime-- juice of
Splash of AVC
Water just to get it moving
Bright red, sweet tangy dressing!
Poured this over the lettuce-- left this to sit.
Finally put together the two elements.. voila! Good balance, the sauce is lovely and sweet, so yummy!! hit the spot :)
