If I had read the title of this post, I would be skeptical too, but read on, remember Green Eggs and Ham. I mean, carrots in Guacomole?
Yes, you might have guessed that we have loads of carrots in the garden, but we have loads of chili peppers too, so you shall be seeing an assortment of palate tickling spicy creations comming your way the next few days and maybe even weeks.
This creation is extremely simple and actually in real life rather colorful, will remind you of the colors of the Indian flag. This recipe is a great way to add some veggies and crunch into your daily diet. My children love this, in fact, the displayed version is very proudly made by my daughter.
She has been wanting to help me in the kitchen for the longest time, although still very hesitant. I think as with all things it is important to have the will and the rest will follow. Her constant question to me is when I started in the kitchen, this is tricky because although I probably did not start any semblance of cooking for a while, I sometimes feel that I have grown up in the kitchen with Ma and Dida.
Speaking of colors, I am currently into photographing the sky, generally a break from the flours and vegetables that I like to take pictures of. I am also trying to figure out whether I want to invest in a lightweight camera. I realize that this is yet another toy, but then again why not? Just trying to see if the object of my desire will accept Cannon lenses as well. The kids have been sick so that has put a bit of a damper on the weekend.
The recipe for this is very basic and simple as Guacamole, the magic is in the freshness of the ingredients and the soft creamy consistency of the Haas Avocado, which while rich in fats, tend to be of the right kind. We fed the kids plenty of avocados when they were little and they loved their smooth rich taste.
As an interesting sidebad I see avocado featuring in a lot of experimental Indian restaurant menus, particularly as a raita, which would not be totally unheard of since I think Mexican flavors compliment a lot of Indian meals.
