Freshness Is Absolute

Forget about reheating cooked vegetables. Just throw the leftovers out.

Even if it’s only been a few hours. Limp and lifeless veggies have no flavour at all because they’re dead. You’re body won’t want them.  The window of opportunity for your la dente veggie stirfy is narrow indeed.  And what doesn’t get eaten right away goes into the compost.

Vegetables are delicate creatures. Don’t treat them like meat. Less is more in terms of cooking them. You should feel the energy it gives you afterwards.

For a fantastic and simple salad, try thee most delicious greens, arugula and watercress. With sun dried tomatoes, marinated mushrooms, finely chopped onion, etc.

Finally the dressing. Squeeze some orange and/or lemon over it, and carefully sprinkle on a little olive and rice vinegar by putting your finger over the spout.  Or a tahini and lemon mixture over top is a crowd-pleaser. Don’t douse it.

Eat at least one salad at day. Eat 3 if you like. Fruit and seeds takes your salad to another level.

Get those croûtons out of there.

Bon Appetite, Pietro
