Diet day !
I’m joining Paul on his 500 calorie day
Let’s see how it goes.
Grilled tomatoes for lunch, and boosting the immunity at the same time with an easy ginger and garlic combo on top.
Just some seasoning, chilli flakes and some fresh coriander to add. And lemon zest to finish. And #nooil 😮
Let’s see how it goes. .
Ok we would normally add oil and grill, but with no oil they have to be roasted ( about 20mins 180℃ till they’re cooked a bit and browned on top )
tasty, and only 85 calories !
So this is how it worked out. Lemon zest and coriander added at the end. Paul decided to micro grate some parmesan on his. I had a taste and yes , it adds a certain Umami extra-ness.
I got him this micro-zester for his birthday. It’s nice and light but sturdy. He said it’s the best present ever because he uses it every day. Believe me, I don’t find it easy to buy gifts for him so this pleases me no end !
Our Microplane micro grater
… the absolute best
The best thing is that it makes the parmesan go a lot further. Its light and fluffy, and feels like you’re getting a lot more than you actually are.
in this recipe, we wanted to finely chop the garlic and ginger to give the meal a bit of texture and oomph ! So we only used the grater for the lemon peel and parmeson here.
But it is brilliant for zesting lemons, lines, ginger and garlic. The garlic crusher here in our rental packed up so we use the micro grater a lot for garlic now too. And it’s way better. It give a much finer mush than a crusher and there’s no waste and no messy clean-up after either.
Just a quick rinse and it’s good to go again.
