YELLOW AND GREEN SALAD

YELLOW AND GREEN SALAD

By  •  Salads & co

Beauty as food feeds us, but on other levels. When our eyes meet something beautiful that express harmony, we experience pleasant sensations and our inner state changes …. With Gusto Vegetariano one of our purpose is to express beauty, as well as create healthy and tasty recipes. For me, personally, the creative phase of a dish begins when I’m inspired by something that has a beautiful “form” (I always browse magazines and cookbooks full of beautiful photographs) … Yes, when I create a new plate I start from getting inspirations from beautiful pictures or beautiful things in nature wich I’d like to reproduce in the kitchen. Then, according to the present season, I think about which vegetables I can combine to get a balanced and healthy dish. Finally I put together all the ingredients creating something similar to that “form” that inspired me in the first phase. So I did for this salad: inspired by a picture of a summer recipe, where the predominant colors were green and yellow, I combined raw and cooked vegetables to get this beautiful “summer” effect ☺

AVOCADO AND BEETROOT GAZPACHO

Avocado is a great fruit: I use it for sweet mousse and to prepare salads or sauces. I live in Italy so I’ve tried those imported from other countries, but some years ago, I’ve discovered that there are many avocado plantations in Sicily. I’ve tried them and they are great. Now, I prefer to wait for their natural ripening and harvest instead of buying them in a supermarket in every moment of the year. Today I share with you this nice recipe: a revisited gazpacho with avocado and beetroot; I hope you like it 😉

PANZANELLA IN GLASS

Panzanella is a typical dish of Central Italy. It’s a simple recipe with summer ingredients. There are several versions, depending on the region of origin. I encourage you to try this variant in glass, that is very elegant to serve as appetizer. I hope you like it: I preferred not to dank bread, but leave it crispy … Anyway, you can choose to add it at the end, to create a contrast note between the different consistencies, or mix it together with the vegetables, to soften with their seasoning. Be inspired, and create your favorite version. 🙂
