Juice apples, lemon, and ginger.  Stir juice into green tea.  May be served warm or cold. (Note: do not brew green tea for too long unless you like the juice to be very bitter…that was my mistake.)

“Vegetable Broth” – hot soup form

– 2-3 cups chopped green beans
– 2-3 cups chopped zucchini
– 2-3 stalks celery, chopped
– 1 tsbp unsalted butter
– 1-3 tbsp chopped parsley
– seasoning to taste (cayenne pepper, ginger, pepper, herbs) –some salt is okay but should not be used as much because sodium intake should be low

Steam green beans, zucchini, and celery in water until soft but still green.  Put veggies in a blender and puree until smooth.  “Broth” should be fairly thick.  Add unsalted butter and chopped parsley.  Season to taste.

About foodieh3aven

Hello world. Let me first introduce myself to you. I’m currently 26 and pursuing a degree in Administration of Justice with an emphasis in Investigations. I have always been a fan and contributor to the food world as far as I could remember, whether or not it was through my eyes of watching my mom or other adults cook, eating at restaurants, or even at my own experimentation with food. I have been coined, through friends, as the Dessert chef. Why, you may ask? My friend Diana, aka: Di, and I like LOVE food and making food. She does mostly the appetizers and food-food, while I cater more to the desserts. However, we aren’t just stuck in our own arenas but dive into each other’s as well. Both of us experiment based on tastes, flavors, smells, and common knowledge of food to make oh, so yummy food. This will be my blog about my adventures, pictures included, through food. I will also delve into details on recipes as well for all of the other foodies in the world who would like to make them as well. Until my next post, happy eatings everyone!
