Dinner: European Style.

We've been having dinner's "European style"  {where you don't get seated until 9pm earliest} quite a bit lately. The fact that it is light outside until 9:30pm or more, live evening concerts in the neighborhood shopping area and just the fun of warm summer nights may have something to do with it. 

That , combined with the fact of the fast , always causes me to brainstorm for tasty, healthy, quick, nourishing and nutritious recipes day in and day out. The other night I came up with something new that I absolutely loved. And judging by the fact how fast the food disappeared off the plates, I think it's safe to say that I was not the only one. You can easily adopt the recipe for fresh{raw} lifestyle.

Main course: 
1 bunch asparagus
1 onion
5 large garlic cloves
1 cup of corn 
1 cup of minced mushrooms
coconut oil
celtic sea salt
white truffle salt

2 heirloom tomatoes
european cucumbers
romain hearts
garlic, dill , salt
balsamic vinegar
EV olive oil
honey vinegar

Mince onion,  3 garlic cloves, mushrooms and dill . salt well and combine with melted coconut oil ( note: coconut oil melts at 70 degrees, so don't sweat to much, just stick the jar under warm running water. It will take 10 seconds) .  Crush 3 more garlic cloves, combine with salt and dill and press until uniformed mixture.  Cut of asparagus tips, combine with corn, add coconut oil ( melted) and mix with garlic/dill paste. { for raw version stop here}. 
Golden onions, garlic and mushrooms for about 5 minutes ( the aroma will let you know it's "there") , add asparagus mixture and sear for no longer then 5 minutes ( actually less - just until the color "pops") constantly mixing. The flavors combine and - viola - you have an amazing dinner in literally 10 minutes. Add a few drops of honey vinegar on the plate, and make sure you don't eat one.

Serve with a side of heirlooms, romane and cucumbers, garnished with white truffle salt, crushed garlic, dill and balsamic. Drizzle with olive oil if you like.

Vegetarian/vegan and raw friendly, that is fast and tastes amazing. 
 How cool is that? 


PS: Did I tell you about the collaboration I've worked on for style and fashion? you can see my newest pics ( and shop!) here, updated daily. I hope you like it! Let me know what you think!


  1. So yummy, and my summer food is the salad :).

    1. Mine too! But kids need something more sufficient for their little bodies and brains :)

  2. This looks really healthy and delicious and you don't have to worry about it being too heavy even if you eat later.
    I think the key to summer cooking is not turning on the stove :) I love making guacamole salad and kim bap rolls

    1. I agree! I LOVE just fresh, cooling fruit and veggies! It's nature's time to "cook" :)
