Arugula Walnut Pesto

Fresh nice looking green arugula is hard to find and I came across a package so now I have to use it . Made pesto and turned out good.

In a food processor , process arugula with garlic ,olive oil, little bit lemon juice .

Pound lightly roasted walnut or roll it using rolling pin and make powder. You can use almond , cashew , pine nut too.

Mix walnut powder with arugula and add some Parmesan cheese.

Pesto is just our Indian chutney.

Use pesto in sandwich as a spread .


Bitter gourd Juice

Bitter gourd or Karela is available in Asian stores . Chinese variety is less bitter . Indian variety is nice good bitter .

Remove the seeds if they are hard and leave them if tender. Chop and blend with some water . Strain and juice is ready.

Bitter is opposite to sweet. kind of , right ? We eat too much sweet and no bitter. If it appeals to you and want to know benefits, try for a month everyday and you will know what it does to you.

Anything that we get curious abt , we have to try and do our own experiment and have our own experience.


Pizza In Cast Iron

We all know by now cast iron is good to cook in and we don’t have to worry abt this and that chemical. Also it cooks things nicely.

Made pizza in it and turned out so good. Look at the nice golden brown crust. Fresh basil leaves plucked from home grown plant is like cherry on the top .

Have you started using or at least bought cast iron pots or skillets ?


Thyme Tea

When we buy herbs for recipes, there’s always left over so just make tea out of it. I had bought sage and thyme for pumpkin pasta and so drinking tea to use up left over.

I didn’t like thyme tea. Didn’t add anything else to it. But At least I know what it taste like now. It was more like “Ajmo” that we use in Indian cooking sometimes.
