Orange Grape Juice With Fresh Turmeric Mint And Lemon / Vegan Drink

Orange and grape juice with fresh turmeric, mint and lemon juice. A nutritious and delicious juice, perfect drink with your daily breakfast.

These days doctors advise everyone to take vitamin C enriched orange daily as a immunity booster. Grapes are also rich in vitamin C and A. So you can call it a immunity booster drink. Orange and grapes are naturally sweet so you don’t need to add any sweetener in it. I have made it 1 serving so used 1/2 cup grapes but you can use 1 cup grapes if you want. You can also increase the amount of turmeric. Use 1/2 to 1 teaspoon if you like the flavour.

Oranges are known for their high Vitamin C content. They are also rich in many anti-oxidants and carotenoids which are known to boost your immune system. Oranges can help in shielding the body from many types of infections and even the growth of cancerous cells. Regular consumption of Oranges can safeguard your body.

Grapes also support immunity. In addition to the aforementioned vitamins C and A, which are both vital for immunity, grapes support the immune system through their natural anti-microbial properties. A one cup portion also supplies about two and a half ounces of water, which is important for hydration, circulation and healthy blood flow, and waste elimination. Source

Turmeric boosts the Immune System Here is a spice that should be added to your cold and flu prevention regimen! Turmeric is a natural way to help bolster the immune system by increasing the immunomodulating capacity of the body. Try adding extra turmeric into your diet during periods of stress or during flu season to help give your immune system a little boost. Source

Lemons are high in vitamin C, a natural antioxidant which enhances the immune system and has antiviral and antibacterial properties. … Regular use can relieve joint pain, lemon juice is an anti-inflammatory because of its anti-oxidants. Lemons are very flavourful making them a healthy salt substitute.

Mint Carrot Beetroot Hummus With Green Peas

 

Mint carrot beetroot hummus with green peas. A superbly delicious hummus with a different taste and flavour. Flavour of mint and lemon and sweetness of beetroot, green peas and carrot made this hummus mouthwatering.

Hummus is a savoury dip or spread made of boiled and ground chickpeas mixed with garlic, tahini and lemon juice. A delicious and very popular spread or dip in the Middle East and Mediterranean, as well as in Middle Eastern cuisine. Earlier shared a delicious Beetroot dip.

You can always increase the ingredients according to your taste. I don’t like sesame seeds flavour so I have used only 1 teaspoon but you can use 1 tablespoon full if you like. I have sauteed the carrot, beetroot and green peas in little olive oil before blending with chickpeas. And sauteed vegetables gives a different taste to the hummus. I didn’t use tahini. Tahini is a paste of toasted sesame seeds and olive oil. And as I mentioned above you can add 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds instead of 1 teaspoon if you like. Or you can completely omit sesame seeds. Sometimes I make it without sesame seeds. But I recommend to add at least 1/2 to 1 teaspoon. Or use 1 tablespoon tahini instead of toasted sesame seeds.

This week’s 236 #Foodiemonday #bloghop theme is Hummus Time suggested by Kalyani Sri who blog at Sizzling Taste Buds. Love her blog name as well as different types of delicious recipes she shared. Recently bookmarked her 8 healthy pongal recipes to try all the delicious and healthy pongal.

I mentioned above that I sauteed the vegetables before blending with chickpeas. You have to saute the vegetables till fork tender in little olive oil. You can add more lemon juice if you want your hummus more tangy. I don’t like the flavour of sesame seeds so I have toasted 2 teaspoon but used 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds and reserved some for garnishing. But you can use 1 tablespoon if you like. Or use 1 tablespoon tahini instead of toasted sesame seeds. You can also add more garlic if you like the garlicky taste and flavour.

Recipe

Chickpeas – 1/2 cup, soaked and boiled

Beetroot – 1

Carrot – 1

Green peas – 1/4 teaspoon

Garlic – 1 clove, chopped

Mint leaves – 2 tablespoon

Toasted sesame seeds – 1 teaspoon

Olive oil – 1 tablespoon + to drizzle

Salt to taste

Cumin powder – 1/2 teaspoon

Black pepper powder – 1/2 teaspoon or to taste

Lemon juice – 1 tablespoon or to taste

Method

1. Peel, rinse and grate or finely chop the beetroot and carrot.

2. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a pan. Add chopped garlic, beetroot, carrot and green peas. Add little salt and stir. Reduce the heat. Cover and cook on simmer until vegetables becomes little soft. Press with a spatula to check. Stir in between. Remove from heat and let it cool down.

3. In a food processor or blender blend the boiled chickpeas. You can also use your grinder. Reserve some chickpeas for garnishing. I reserved some ground chickpeas too for garnishing.

4. Add sauteed vegetables, mint leaves, toasted sesame seeds, salt, cumin powder and black pepper powder. Add some water from boiled chickpeas for easy grinding. Blend everything till smooth.

5. Add lemon juice and remaining olive oil. Blend till everything combine well and becomes smooth. You can add little more cold boiled chickpeas water. Taste and add more salt and lemon juice if require and blend again.

6. Take out the mixture into a bowl. Drizzle little olive oil over it. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds, boiled chickpeas and mint leaves. Serve with pita bread or raw vegetable sticks. Remaining hummus can be stored in refrigerator.

Notes

1. You can add 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds or use 1 tablespoon tahini instead of sesame seeds.

2. You can use one more garlic clove if you like.

Archana is a very talented blogger. Do visit her space for different types of delicious and innovative recipes. Like chocolate pie, Caramel apple plum mini pizza etc.
I have recently bookmarked her honey cake to try.

Archana suggested to make something without wasting anything. So I am sharing this beetroot green stir fry with green peas and potato. I have used leaves and tender stems of beetroot. Every part of the beetroot is nutritious so why to discard anything. Use beetroot peels to make compost. Vegetable and fruit peels can be used to fertilize your plants.

Green chilli – 2

Mustard oil – 1 & 1/2 tablespoon

Method

1. Wash the beetroot greens well and chop into small pieces. Finely chop the tender stems too.

2. Peel and grate 1 beetroot. Use the peel to make compost. Vegetable peels are great organic alternative to chemical fertilizer.

3. Rinse the potato well. Don’t peel. Thinly slice the potato.

4. Heat mustard oil in a pan. You can use olive oil or any oil instead of mustard oil. Add nigella seeds or kalonji.

5. Add sliced potato and fry for 2 minutes.

6. Add grated ginger, grated beetroot, chopped 1 green chilli and chopped tomato. Saute till tomato becomes soft and dried up.

7. Add chopped beetroot greens, chopped cilantro or coriander leaves, salt, turmeric powder and 1 – 2 slit green chilli. Mix well. Beetroot greens will release lots of water. Cover and cook on low heat 10 – 15 minutes or until dried up. Stir in between.

8. Remove the cover. Increase the heat and cook on high heat until dried up completely.

9. Add lemon juice. You can also add some more chopped cilantro or coriander leaves.

10. Mix well. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Add more salt and lemon juice if require.

11. Remove from heat. You can garnish with lemon wedges, ginger julienne and chopped cilantro.
Serve with steamed rice, roti, paratha or any bread.

Notes

1. Add more chopped green chilli if you want spicy. Or skip if you are making for kids.
2. Boiled sweet corn can be used with green peas.
3. You can also add few chopped garlic cloves with nigella seed.

Lemon Cake With Gondhoraj Lebu Or Kaffir Lime

Eggless lemon cake with gondhoraj lebu. Whole wheat flour cake flavoured with kaffir lime.
A delicious and aromatic cake made with whole wheat flour, soybean flour and gondhoraj lebu or lime. For more lemon taste you can also spread lemon glaze on the cake.

What is gondhoraj lebu or lime? Oblong shaped green colored and aromatic lime normally used to make dal chawal flavourful. And often used in some fish dishes. You can use it in any dish to get strong lemon flavour.

For all that its aroma and flavour send most Bengalis into paroxysms of joy, the “gondhoraj lebu” or lime does not even have a Wikipedia entry, the ultimate indicator of 21st century relevance.
Call it lime, lemon or lebu, use any spelling of gondhoraj (aroma king), but the internet cache will be woefully small.
The Thais have their kaffir lime and the Caribbeans have key limes. The Chinese have many — from the Canton lime to the misleadingly named Meyer. Do we Indians have one we can call unequivocally our own?
Yes indeed — the gondhoraj. Restaurateur Anjan Chatterjee says the gondhoraj is actually a ‘Rangpur’ lime, the name harking back to its origin in east Bengal, where its heady aroma hangs in the air. The Rangpur is a cross between a lime and a mandarin orange; call it Bengali romanticism, but the gondhoraj does seem to be more than a mere hybrid.
It is too oblong and somewhat hard to be summarily and nonchalantly squished by hand anyway. Cut into longish quarters with the thick green rind intact, it has to be gently pressed to extract but a few drops of actual juice and plentiful bits of aromatic pulp. That minuscule quantity has traditionally been enough to pep up the dullest daal or the most insipid vegetables, on a sweltering summer day.
