Green Kiwi

This tiny fruit is a real health booster. It covers the vitamin C requirement of a grown up person per day and supplies you with antioxidants and minerals. But this would not be Eatery Berlin if I wrote this article only based on nutrition rather than a tasty experience. If I am thinking of kiwi, my mind would be always connected with two things. First: a beautiful road trip around New Zealand, the origin of kiwi fruits and second: my childhood. Growing up in the eastern part of Germany, my family and I would have the chance to try this fruit at the age of nine years. Even though the shops would ask a fortune for one kiwi fruit back in 1989, my mother bought us one fruit to share between the four of us. Ever since this memory got marked in my head.

More than fruit salad

In cooperation with Zespri Kiwis I created a savory recipe for all of you, as I think a perfectly ripe kiwi can be more than that. I do not mean not to enjoy a fruit salad for a healthy breakfast or snack, but I like the thought of giving a good product a twist from time to time. Also, most people (including me) would not think of a savory dish in combination with a kiwi in the first place. So, I sat down and thought it over for a bit and came up with a really simple and tasty recipe for you guys.

Fast as 1-2-3

During the warm period of the year I love to use green smoothies as a sauce for any kinds of dishes. I combine sorrel and avocado, pak choi and grapes or in this case I thought of a liquid salad. Easy said but even more simple to do so. I threw some Lollo Bianco lettuce, a few Zespri Kiwis and a bit of apple juice in a blender and ready I was. Actually, I think, if you would use less lettuce, more kiwi and maybe a banana with some oats, this could well be a liquid breakfast. Adding some roasted flavors with a charred cucumber gave this dish a real savory character and was only rounded up with some skyr. Sure, the eye did not want to be forgotten for a multi sensual experience and therefore a simple dish with a sexy appearance.
