Poached Egg Over Baby Spinach, Drizzled with Olive Oil and Lime Juice
¡A huevo! Word of the Week and a Healthy Breakfast
Ok, so this weeks Mexican Word of the Week is more of an expression than a word. If you have ever spent any time in Mexico it is likely you have heard someone exclaim “¡A huevo!” at some point. In Spanish huevo translates to “egg” but “a huevo” is nothing to do with our favourite breakfast staple, however, i decided to throw in a tasty, healthy breakfast idea along with this weeks’ Mexican word of the week as it’s almost the weekend and it’s going to be busy!
This beautifully thick and velvety soup is such a striking shade of emerald-green (my photo doesn’t do it any justice at all..) that you’ll feel healthier just by looking at it! This is a very vegetarian soup that even the most carnivorous of you will enjoy – I guarantee it. How do I know this .. well I live with a very carnivorous Mexican who, when we met, claimed not to like fruits or vegetables at all – “they’re for cows”, and would not be amused if there was no meat with dinner. These days, happily, he is far more omnivorous and as long as I don’t push it with too many veggie meals in a row, I can get away with 2 or even 3 meat free days a week. (more…)
A fresh, colourful salad, quick and easy to prepare, tasty and full of goodness. Even though its autumn its still hot here in Manzanillo and a mixed salad is always a good way to get some fresh veggies into your diet! (more…)
