Apricot and passionfruit smoothie, plus a salad and a spinach dip
this smoothie). However this one is worth sharing because it uses two of my favourite summer fruits: apricot and passionfruit. It is perfect for a summer breakfast.
Rock Your Vegan Socks. Kimmy's photo was really gorgeous and made the dip queue-jump my to do list. The dip was really delicious but then I found I had posted a really similar spinach dip recipe a couple of years ago. We had it with sweet potato mash and roasted red capsicum strips wrapped in sourdough flatbreads.
For Kimmy's dip I followed the recipe closely, just using spinach instead of kale and sriracha instead of ground pepper. I highly recommending heading over to check out Kimmy's blog to check out her kale dip.
The salad had a base of wild rice, brown rice and brown lentils. These were topped with spiralised carrots, spring onions, walnuts, avocado and parsley. I think the dressing was just oil, vinegar and garlic. Spiralising the carrot was not great for this salad. Grated carrot would work better. And the avocado, that I used instead of feta, was delicious but avocado is suddenly so expensive that I am less likely to use it right now. I would like to return to this salad and maybe might even remember to write notes next time.
I am sending the smoothie to Healthy Vegan Fridays, Gluten Free Fridays and No Waste Food Challenge.

seeds and pulp of 2 passionfruits
