When it comes to having a nourishing and exciting dish, having lots of bright and complimentary colors is one great way to the picture perfect plate you’d want to share with all your friends.
In addition, this dish is a great opportunity to use as much NUDGE (Nutritional Yeast) as you desire. Over the avocado, over the tomato jam, even over the green beans. While you don’t ever want to over do it and eat more the a moderate amount, part of cooking is having fun and experimenting with tastes—some combinations work better then others for everyone.
Avocado Toasts// Weaver St. Sourdough bread (zero waste at Co Op), amino acids (o), curry powder (o), salt, olive oil or sesame oil, Nudge.
Slice and grill bread over low head on a skillet with oil, adding curry seasoning to taste. Slice fresh avocado, top toast, sprinkle salt + Nudge, optionally top with sriracha.
Tomato jam// diced tomato, garlic, dash balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, optional herbs (basil, rosemary, or thyme)
Sauté tomatoes + garlic with herbs over low heat in the skillet with residual oil used for the grilled bread until tomatoes are soft / desired texture, add a dash of vinegar to taste.
Roasted Green Beans // two handful of organic green beans, sesame oil (or any other kind of cooking oil), salt, pepper, cayenne pepper (optional), ginger.
Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Wash green beans and pull off stems, not necessary to cut off ends or even the stems if you are really tired and hungry. Put in in a pan the dry, or semi dry, green beans and add oil and seasonings. Mix and put in oven for 20-25 min, depending on your desired texture, more time will give you a darker and softer green bean.
