There I am, sitting again, in the morning, behind my computer with a cup of coffee and looking at the blogpost I got again this morning from a very active rawfooder, who advises me (and the rest of her 2000 followers) to eat at least one raw meal a day (no problem amigo) and leave the dairy products, sugar, alcohol and coffee. Staring at my coffee, I am thinking: the last two I seem to have most trouble with.
Oh how I wish I was fully Raw again (which I was about a year agao). I felt as if I could fly, so energic, my skin was so relaxed and I was happy with my body. Exactly what my commercial rawfoodie-friend tells me here. So, why don`t I ? (yes, I am aware of how-easy-it-can-sound in a commercial and maybe she stuffs her mouth full with candy after the shoot...you never know)
Well, I kinda like my morning coffee, and a wine or a beer in the evening. And, my god, now and then a full spoon , or two, with fat thick greek yogurt, yammie ! How can I resist! So, I decided to do both ways. And in summertime it is easier to eat more salads, which I love, already since my childhood.
It works a bit like a computer, and which program you use for your daily life. The rawfood program is still there in my computer, it just needs to be reloaded.
So, just as a reload to myself, to program rawfood in my life again, and as a treat to you, I would like to post a Green leaf lunch with triple hummus today.
The Triple hummus contains first of all Romilda`s delicious Roasted carrot hummus, which I leave for Romilda to give the recipe for, second the general chickpea hummus, and third the peas hummus. Today is ...... Pea hummus day !!! Yeahhh !
- 2 cups Green Peas (use frozen or fresh Peas)
- 1 cup of almonds
- 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
- 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
- 2 tsp minced Garlic (or to taste)
- 1/4 tsp ground Cumin
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- In a food processor process first the almonds until fine, than add the peas,
- combine all of the ingredients and puree for 1 minute.
- add more lemon juice, or a splash of water, when it becomes to dry.
- You can puree longer for a more whipped consistency or less for a chunkier and more meaty texture. Either way you really can't go wrong!
Take a nice fresh green leaf of lettuce or kale and spoon the hummus on it. Make a roll of the green leaf for eating.
Tip: you can leave the almonds out, if you are allergic to nuts, or replace them for chickpeas.
