    Simple healthy recipe's

    Based on discussions in the "what are you eating" thread and the Juicing thread, I thought it would be a good idea to set up a thread where we can share some simple healthy recipe's..

    As a start, I will reveal one of my signature dishes, popular with my kids and most of my guests (except, of course, my dad 55).
    This dish was born when I worked in Tanzania, where you could get very little in the way of ingredients..
    Every now and then we would travel 2 hours to the city of Morogoro, where there were some Indian shops which had some canned and jarred luxuries..

    Such as canned sardines and olives.. Sounds simple, and the dish started of in a very simple way.. But developed a bit over the years.

    Basically, it's just stuffed avocado..

    What I use now as ingredients:

    1 avocado
    1/2 small onion
    1 tomato
    1/6 red peppercorn
    1 small can of anchovy
    1 teaspoon of black olive tappenade (from a jar)
    1 teaspoon of tomato tappenade (different jar)
    A squash of lemon

    For myself I add 1/2 a clove of garlic, but no salt or spices are added..

    Recipe:

    Cut the avocado in half and get the stone out.
    ( I cut a bit of the skin on the underside of the avocado so it sits on a plate without wobbling)
    Finely chop all ingredients and mix with the tappenade and lemon
    Fill the avocado halves generously with the mix, put any excess on the side to re-fill the avocado when half eaten..

    Bon Appetit!

    Similar to something I like... a half red pepper... fill the half pepper with tuna, chopped spring onions and half an avocado all mixed together... with a drizzle of lemon and a slice of tomato...
    My only experience was in a pie making factory managing the gravy team

    I also do a similar thing to avocado but fill it with Cook Island style marinated fish.. raw fish / cerviche.

    This is also a favourite.. quick and simple

    More and more I make food without any seasoning..

    Feels strange for me, but the Thai do it like that for ages.. Let the flavors come from the ingredients, though I think fish sauce and oyster sauce are similar to seasoning..

    Today my vegetarian (and lesbian, though that's got to do fuck all with it) daughter asked my for a pasta salad.

    The way I did it was a success, she ate it all..

    Cooked two hands full of small Penne..
    Let that cool down and added some pesto.. stir well..
    Chopped up some sweet pepricorn, and some fresh basil leaves..

    Composed the dish with some mixed mixed ruccola, the pesto infused pasta, cherry tomato's, small balls of mozeralla, pre-packed Italian croutons, capres and fresh basil.
    On the side I toasted some Olive bread with olive oil,garlic and oregano..

    I figure it was too much and she would never finish it, but no such luck, I will have to make something else for myself.. 555

    That's not a seasoning free recipe IMO? What do you consider a seasoning?

    No salt or pepper or any other powdered spice added..

    That is just against the way my mother taught me how to cook .

    So you mean manufactured powder seasonings. The capers and pesto will have salt added anyways.

    That is just it..

    Mexican food can get flavor from lemon for sour, corn for sweet, chilies for spicy and Cilantro for bitter,, Still need to add salt..

    Thai food gets salt from fish sauce, no need to add powder seasoning...

    But Dutch food has no flavor whatsoever, flavors are added from powdered spices..
