Well I meant to make a nice coconut, Asian-style fish dish for dinner tonight. But instead, I opened up our Thermomix to fluoro green…! I was extra-keen with the coriander (a great herb to strip heavy metals from our body) but to my surprise the boys LOVED the green sauce and ate the meal! Hooray for their body’s reaping the benefits.
Here is the recipe:
Fluoro green fish
This dish made enough for three of us (husband away). I made this in our Thermomix, but please give it a go if you don’t have one. It’s a forgiving recipe that can be made roughly to these measurements.
4 cloves garlic
1 tsp peeled ginger
1/2 bunch coriander roughly chopped (including stems and roots)
~20g sesame or coconut oil
1 tsp turmeric powder
~100g finely sliced cabbage
(Please add in as many or as little vegetables as you like. I got side tracked and forgot to put in other veges, like carrot or broc pieces)
~300g local, fresh white fish
~150g coconut cream
Himalayan pink rock salt, pepper to taste
Optional : fresh chilli, lime juice, fish sauce, rapadura sugar. The boys don’t fare well with most of these foods so we leave them out. But the dish is still tasty without them 🙂
1. Add garlic, ginger, onion, coriander and zucchinis to the Thermomix bowl. Grate 10 secs – SP 8 until smooth.
2. Add oil and cook 100deg – 2 mins – SP 1.
3. Add turmeric powder, salt, pepper, cabbage and mushrooms. Cook 100 deg – 7 mins – SP 1.
4. Add fish and coconut milk. Cook 100 deg – 5 mins – SP 1.
Serve with rice, quinoa or cauliflower rice, carrot ‘noodles’ or just as is.
So once I got my game face on and served the boys this ridiculously green dish (the photo doesn’t do it justice!), Master 4 was shovelling it before I knew it…! Master 2 came around at the end (his usual trick, taking time to get used to the idea of what was in the bowl and after the obligatory ‘yucky’, with my response ‘say “I’m not sure about it”‘). It was so green, they didn’t even SEE the cabbage for the greenery! Woohoo! It’s a winner. I’ll be making it again before long to remind the boys of how delicious they found it the first time 🙂
So what do you think, can you fathom testing your kids on the greenery?
