1個 青檸 (搾汁, 刨皮蓉) zest and juice of 1 lime

紅糖或蜜糖(調味用) brown sugar or honey, to taste

做法 Method
在熟食用砧板上將芒果去皮起肉。然後將芒果肉連同留在砧板上的芒果汁加入攪拌機或食物處理器. 再加入牛奶, 青檸汁, 青檸皮蓉, 冰塊和薄荷葉. 將所有材料打成至細滑. 如果喜歡更甜的口味, 可加入紅糖或蜜糖, 再高速打兩,三秒. 然後放入雪櫃雪凍. 享用前灑上幾片薄荷葉作裝飾。
Remove the skin and cut the juicy flesh off the mangoes. Place the fruit in a blender or food processor, along with any juice left on the chopping board. Add the milk, lime juice and zest, ice and mint leaves and give it all a good whiz until smooth. Taste, and if you’ve got a sweet tooth, add a sprinkling of brown sugar or honey and give it another quick whiz. Chill in the fridge before serving, then garnish with a few mint leaves.

Something Fresh: Spinach Chickpea Curry

Spinach Chickpea Currey

The typical Indian version contains certain spices which may be a little difficult to source, or may not be worthwhile getting if only being used with this curry. The following recipe has been tweaked so that all the ingredients can be bought in a typical supermarket.

Ingredients (serves 3)

2 fresh tomatoes, diced 3 cups fresh spinach, chopped
1/2 inch cube fresh ginger, finely chopped 1 can chickpeas drained and washed
½ medium onion, finely chopped 2/3 cup water
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped 2 tablespoon curry powder
1 small handful fresh coriander, chopped fine 1/2 teaspoon ground chilli powder
1/2 fresh green chilli, seeds removed and very finely chopped 2 tablespoons grapeseed or canola oil.
1 teaspoon sea salt (or to taste)

Method of Preparation:

  1. Puree the tomatoes, onion, garlic and ginger in a blender.
  2. Add oil to a pan on medium heat and wait for the oil to get hot. Add the green chilli and stir for about 30 seconds.
  3. Add the blended mixture (there will be a little splatter, so please take care!)
  4. Add salt, curry powder and chilli powder and stir.
  5. Add the spinach and water and continue to stir the mixture for 3-4 minutes.
  6. Add the drained chickpeas and stir into the mixture. Cover and leave to simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  7. Garnish the curry with the chopped coriander and serve with rice (brown rice to be particularly healthy, but couscous, basmati rice or jasmine rice will also do!)
